Trameter is a travel agency providing algorithm based instant packages to travelers. Born from the personal pain point of trying to book a vacation - "I had $500 and wanted a quick getaway. I thought there was a platform where I could easily enter my budget and preferences and it would just automatically create a single package for me.That did not exist and when I shared that challenge with my friend Victoria who was a travel agent. She said that did not exist. We both thought that was a brilliant idea and upon further research, the market was ready for it, so we started Trameter."

At UnDelay, we determine the root cause of flight delays by transcribing radio conversations between airports and airlines. We aggregate this data to determine if a specific flight number is having a mechanical, tug pushback or taxiing issue during departure or arrival.Instead of listening to hundreds of hours of radio conversations, airlines, airports, and travel companies can search the cause of a delay in seconds. Flight delays cost the airline industry $8.2 billion annually and operational related disruptions account for nearly half of delays. Flight plans that indicate a plane’s flight path and ETA constantly change due to irregular operations which increase overall labor and fuel costs. By utilizing AI and advanced technology, the efficiency of flight plans will increase, and the amount of flight delays will be reduced.
