TraveLease, a service bureau company dedicated to providing automation solutions and technology outsourcing to small and midsize tour companies in North America, today announced the signing of its first customer, Brennan Tours, a leading escorted tour company, based in Seattle, WA that offers travel programs to North America and Ireland.
TraveLease gives small- to mid-size travel companies the opportunity to have state-of-the-art technology without any of the upfront capital and technical resources typically required for implementing top of the line technology. The basis of TraveLease`s technology offering is CONTOUR, the first-of-its-kind, true travel distribution software that automates all aspects of the leisure travel business - from individual travel components to vacation packages and customized tours. CONTOUR is a system that delivers enormous flexibility and functionality to travel companies to dramatically enhance their yield-management and operating processes, reducing costs while significantly increasing their revenue and marketing capabilities. Until TraveLease, the CONTOUR system was only available to the largest of travel companies and out of reach to the small to mid-sized travel company. Interest from large travel companies in the CONTOUR system has been exceptional with licenses being signed by Abercrombie & Kent and Grand Circle Corporation, Lufthansa Systems of Germany and Amadeus.
“We are truly excited about having the opportunity to harness the enormous power of the CONTOUR system through TraveLease,” said Sean Brennan. “Their experienced staff, first rate technical infrastructure, transaction based pricing arrangement and comprehensive package of services, offers an unbeatable value to travel companies,” Brennan added.
“Brennan Tours is a first class organization and is well regarded by its customers,” said Tom Easthope, TraveLease`s founder and president. “The implementation of CONTOUR?” through TraveLease will open doors at Brennan Tours to multi-media, communications, and processing capabilities that until now only the largest travel organizations could afford.”
TraveLease is the first service bureau dedicated to tour operators and wholesale travel companies. The company provides technology and automation solutions to small and midsize tour companies and travel suppliers in North America. Located in Seattle, Washington, TraveLease provides smaller travel companies the means to compete successfully in the ever increasing world of technology and the Internet.
