If you are looking for a new revenue source, take a look at truvle Ltd's, new, free software program that promises to turn e-tickets and e-itineraries into extra income for travel agents. The software allows ads and information on the e-tickets and itineraries passengers receive by e-mail and then print at home or at the office.
The software is free to travel agents, creates an additional income stream for agencies which can split ad revenue with truvle, and works with multiple GDSs (giving itineraries an attractive, uniform look with value-added content). It also increases brand exposure for agencies that fill e-tickets with their logos, corporate colors and banners promoting their products and services.
“The upgraded itinerary presents an enormous opportunity for travel agencies to increase revenue, while also providing better service in a way that's customized and unique,” says Alon Zaibert, truvle's CEO. “truvle has transformed the e-ticket and itinerary into a useful, attractive travel tool providing a personalized home page with special appeal to busy travelers. Our next-generation itineraries give the travel agent a competitive edge in today's interactive travel industry. They make the agent a one-stop-shop for restaurants, concerts, shows, nightlife, museums and more through targeted ads and information.”
truvle is working now with major airlines and travel agencies around the globe. Current travel industry partners include: Ophir Tours, the Carlson Wagonlit Travel representative in Israel; Issta, Israel's largest travel agency; El Al Airlines; FCm Travel Solutions, Denmark, a major
corporate travel and expense management services firm, and Flight Centre travel agency.
