Visa Inc (V) on Aug. 23, 2016 CyberSource, a Visa Inc. company (NYSE:V), and one of the world’s largest providers of eCommerce payment management services, announced its partnership with Tiket.com, one of Indonesia’s largest Online Travel Agents (OTA).

In fact, Tiket.com has been able to retain customer loyalty and grow its customer base without a significant increase in customer complaints. CyberSource Decision Manager leverages the World’s Largest Fraud Detection Radar to automatically screen more inbound orders faster, more accurately, and with less manual intervention. As a result, Tiket.com has been able to elevate customer experience with a secure and frictionless payment process, which in turn expands the company’s reach. This is clearly demonstrated in the company’s annual revenues doubling year-on-year since 2011.
With the company more than doubling in revenue annually, Tiket.com is the most extensive online booking platform in Indonesia, covering both the OTA and entertainment industries. Currently, Tiket.com employs more than 250 people across three offices in Indonesia, and partners 30 regional and domestic airlines, as well as more than 180,000 hotels around the world.

Even as we grow our customer base, we are heartened that our fraud rates remain among the lowest within Indonesia’s OTA industry.
