Welcome to Spurwing.
The Spurwing system is a Travel Industry transaction hub,
providing business to business trading facilities and
optimising processing touch points between Organisations,
a trading community within the sector.
Spurwing provides standards
in terms of e-commerce and data interchange for the Travel Industry.
This initiative is receiving good industry support by individual organisations
and supporting bodies such as the Australian Tourism Export Council.
Advancement in information technology now facilitates quality data exchange between
entities minimising anomalies introduced through traditional manual handling.
High volumes of menial tasks can now be performed very quickly at low cost.
(Traditionally product suppliers and their distributors each manage relationships on a
number of levels within organisations, management, product and finance the main.
There can be in the order of hundreds if not thousands of these relationships depending
on the size of the organisations involved.)
Core to these commercial relationships is cash flow and a clean financial exchange between the two,
the first priority of the Spurwing system is to streamline this interface between trading partners.

not been (automatically agreed as) reconciled.

can be performed through the course of the month, before the end of month payment close off.
- Archive repository.

Spurwing is an extremely costs effective solution which is very easy to use, we estimate it delivers us 85% savings compared to costs. A recent example is having returned from leave I had 2 weeks of invoicing waiting to be done, this would typically take a week to complete the old way, however by using Spurwing it was done within 4 hrs! .
