Tour operating software and systems specialist, intuitive Ltd, is using the Travel Technology Show 2010 to publicly demonstrate the vast range of enhancements to its web-based tour operating platform, iVector, including the integration of nearly 20 new interfaces. A range of third party management, monitoring and configuration tools have also been added to the already feature-rich dynamic packaging software, ensuring iVector is unrivalled in its field in terms of the control it gives to tour operators.
Says Arthur Moulding, managing director, intuitive Ltd: “We have had a tremendously busy and successful 2009, with iVector now the dynamic packaging system for some of the biggest and most innovative brands in the industry, including the LowCost Travel Group, Thomas Cook Benelux, Amro Worldwide and getabed.co.uk. With an incredibly competitive marketplace, it’s all about speed of delivery and quality of product. At Travel Technology 2010 we will be showing visitors to the stand all the new functionality built into our dynamic packaging software designed specifically to address these demands.”
iVector offers tour operators a unique web-based platform for live packaging, pricing and availability, be it from ‘own-contracted’ stock or from a third party; sold online, in a call centre or distributed via XML. It can be tailored to accommodate the unique needs of each business, from accommodation-only websites and dynamic packaging multi-sales channel agents, through to tailor-made itinerary building by specialist tour operators.
Mr Moulding says as each customer presents new challenges in terms of adapting the software to fit exact needs so it is these individual challenges that ultimately improve the flexibility and functionality of the system. The enhancements built into iVector offer the end user even lower costs and overheads as well as rapid processing and a single point of input for optimum efficiency. Based on the growth in sales and technical functionality in 2009, Moulding believes that iVector has now set the standard for web-based tour operating systems in the UK.
Concludes Mr Moulding: “We have certainly seen an industry-wide increase in optimism in the later stages of 2009 and we hope to see this reflected at the show. The Travel Technology show always provides us with a strong, positive start to the year and in many ways is a bellwether for the industry and the year ahead. We are looking to build our great success over the past year in 2010 and intend to kick this year off with a great show.”
