MTravel has partnered with Umapped to introduce a new mobile itinerary and trip publisher for its independent travel agents. Umapped provides travel advisors and their clients with a simple tool to create customized travel itineraries that can be accessed via the web, mobile and as offline PDFs.
Different than mobile itinerary builders that are built from the traveler's viewpoint, Umapped includes components important to travel professionals, the company said. Itineraries are branded with the agency name and logo and permit collaboration between agents, clients and supplier partners. Regularly used destination content may be stored in the Umapped documents library or pulled directly from travel42, giving agents the option to include industry-vetted content for their travelers. Umapped also integrates with several GDS platforms and ClientBase, with agents easily adding confirmed and proposed bookings for transportation, accommodation, activities, insurance and more for clients in their database.
In a written release, Andi Mysza, head of MTravel, said, "This tool gives agents the ability to build mobile-friendly itineraries that can be updated on the go. Features like a master trip calendar, live flight updates and real-time chat will help eliminate the confusion and frustration involved with constant itinerary revisions."
Umapped and MTravel kicked off their partnership with demos and training at MTech Academy from June 2 - June 4, 2017, in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Virtuoso Office. To attend one of the webinars, contact MTravel at 800-870-5799.
