PlanitEasy Aims to Be “LinkedIn and Google” for Travel Agents

Travel website
PlanitEasy is a new tool to help agents work more efficiently.

PlanitEasy has launched as a new platform that allows travel agents to plan, manage, and perform the daily tasks of running a travel agency all in one place. 

Creator Christopher Eriksen was a former CEO of a custom and group travel company. In a written release he said that he designed PlanitEasy to provide a simple workflow from the first meeting with clients through their departure. Eriksen describes the platform as a combination of LinkedIn and Google, but for travel professionals. 

Like the professional networking site LinkedIn, PlanitEasy connects clients with agencies and agencies with tour operators, suppliers, DMC’s and other crucial players. There, they can share resources to optimize their business. The company says that it plans on adding all segments of travel professionals eventually. 

The site also allows users to use integrated planning tools including, a trip database, CRM, trip planner, request and proposal tracker, itinerary builder, cloud/document file storage, accounting system, contracts and bookings management tools, and more.

Eriksen says he believes the entire industry will increase its efficiency, transparency, and profits by using his site. In turn, travelers benefit from a more personalized experience and improved customer service as a result of their agents’  ability to work with their own teams, partners, suppliers, and resource providers.  

This is one of many new platforms designed specifically for those in the travel industry. Last year, AXUS Travel App announced the addition of live data delivery and updates from Sabre through its GDS and ClientBase systems. 

Travel professional can build a free profile on PlanitEasy.com. Advanced accounts are available for $75 per month per user.
