CheckMate - User Guide

Navitas CheckMate is a robotic application that monitors availability for specific classes or seats.
A simple web based interface and handy GDS uploader tool allows you to easily create, view and edit a wish-list of classes or seats. A robotic then regularly searches for availability and emails you the moment there's news!
Saving you hours of time and stress, this handy tool revolutionises the way you monitor released inventory

CheckMate - GDS Uploader

The CheckMate GDS Uploader tool allows you to automatically send details of any Waitlisted or Closed Classes and specific Seats or Seat Characteristics that you want to find availability for .

CheckMate Uploader - Signing In

When you first start up the CheckMate Uploader, you will be asked to Sign In – this is the email/password that will have been given to you by Navitas Solutions or your appointed CheckMate administrator.  This screen will validate the user and then won't appear again.

The Uploader screen will list any flights found in the current PNR.
Waitlisted flights will be automatically checked in the Waitlist column, or you can manually check the box to force the system to upload the already booked class.
You can also provide any closed classes that you might be looking for - with any of these boxes if you are looking for more than one, you can comma separate them as follows and shown; M,T,H

The same goes for specific seats that you might be looking for. In the Specific Seats box you can type a seat number, or multiple seat numbers (again using a comma to separate).
If you are looking for a particular seat type then these characteristics can be selected from the drop down list instead.

Hitting 'Submit' will upload the various options to the CheckMate robotic system. The uploader will remain on screen as you can move to a different booking file, hit the 'Refresh' button to upload several PNR's in succession.

www.navitascheckmate.co.uk

A website - www.navitascheckmate.co.uk - is available to allow users to check, edit or delete class/seat checks that have been uploaded. You can also manually add in any checks (without using the Uploader tool).
