Brennan Tours has launched reservations operations on Atinera’s hosted services platform.
Brennan Tours will sell and manage its full product line of premier escorted motorcoach vacations from the Atinera system.
Atinera’s hosted solution enables Brennan Tours to focus on growing its core business and servicing its customers, not on purchasing and managing IT systems. Atinera houses and runs the necessary hardware from a Seattle-based Data Center and provides experienced staff to implement and monitor the software. Atinera uses a pay-per-transaction pricing model. As a result, the upfront capital required for customers to get up-and-running is low and the ongoing costs to utilize or upgrade the system are eliminated.
“The Atinera solution is exactly what many companies in the leisure travel industry have been looking for: a cost-effective yet fully functional system to manage our complex products and businesses more efficiently,” said Robert Brennan, President and CEO of Brennan Tours. “In today’s market it is critically important to grow smartly and keep operational costs in check. Now that our system is launched we only pay as our passengers travel. We’ll also benefit from the standardization and process management that the Atinera solution provides.”
“Atinera was founded with the vision of bringing sophisticated, enterprise-level automation and management software to tour operators and travel suppliers of any size,” said Yuri Vizitei, President and CEO of Atinera Holding. “We view Brennan Tours as a long-term business partner. We derive revenue as Brennan does business via the Atinera platform. In that way our goals are aligned, so we are keenly focused on helping Brennan grow their business.”
