iTravel, a clicks-and-bricks travel provider dedicated to helping companies better measure and manage their travel costs has created an e-marketplace for the travel industry and been named a preferred supplier on the PurchasePro global marketplace.
iTravel`s e-marketplace will provide travel services to businesses of all sizes, enabling them to experience efficient, accountable and cost-effective full-service travel packages at discounted rates. The marketplace will empower businesses to book their own travel through a unique browser-based application that leverages iTravel`s partnerships with airlines, hotels and car rental agencies.
Other features of the company`s e-marketplace include an e-ticket tracker monitor that allows companies to track unused, non-refundable tickets for re-use, a seat-finder monitor and online campus training.
PurchasePro`s active marketplace-to-marketplace (m2m) connectivity will link iTravel to an industry-leading number of businesses and private-labelled marketplaces. The companies will also participate in joint marketing and sales opportunities, providing iTravel with increased revenue streams and an expanded customer base.
Companies using the e-marketplace will receive a 5% rebate on net airfare booked online. Marketplace members will also have instant access to travel experts who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
