Travel technology company iZento is making enhancements to iZento Professional, the most advanced online service for building complex itineraries and creating customized trip journals with tools and resources designed specifically for professional travel agents.
Additionally, iZento is proud to unveil the new look of its website at iZento.com that contains enhanced features and improved navigation for iZento’s various technology platforms by audience segmentation.
The iZento Professional platform provides traditional and home-based travel agents with an easy-to-use tool for building complex itineraries and creating customized trip journals that can be shared online or professionally bound and printed for clients. Beyond any similar type of service, iZento enables a customer to collaborate in building their trip online at iZento.com, coupled with live agent support and insight for the ultimate in itinerary personalization – all while saving agents time and providing them with an edge in today’s competitive travel market.
Some of the iZento Professional platform enhancements and new functionality for use by the site’s registered travel specialists includes:
1. Increased destination information, covering more than 4,250 locations worldwide
2. The addition of 25,000 new activities and the ability for agents to schedule over 200K activities directly from the platform’s database
3. Share page enhancements featuring the “Email a link” addition to access a completed itinerary
4. Broadened automobile rental options for adding to a trip
5. International launch of platform’s availability to agent subscribers based in countries outside of North America
iZento’s user-friendly interface makes it easy for travel professionals to complete the step-by-step trip building process. Once an agent has input the necessary trip information into the iZento prompts, iZento organizes the information in a matter of seconds, creating a completely personalized and trip plan that can be edited by the travel professional, viewed online for collaboration with clients, posted on Facebook or purchased as a professionally-bound print journal as a take-along reference for travelers. Within minutes, any subscriber can create an impressive trip journal personalized to a client’s specifications that brings all of those important details of a trip (destination information, directions, maps, opening/closing times, etc.) into one compact companion.
The iZento Professional service is a low-cost monthly subscription, per travel professional – with no long-term contract requirements or upfront costs. iZento Professional’s agent-focused tools include priority access to an extensive database of cruises, air travel options, destination information, activities, events and more that can be incorporated into an itinerary with a few simple clicks. Travel specialists can brand iZento’s trip journals with their own company logos and marketing messages to provide a personalized touch for their clients as well as high quality collateral pieces that enhance their professional appeal.
Beyond the iZento Professional platform for travel agents, iZento recently announced the launch of its Travel Provider Platform that enables travel companies of all sizes – from tour operators, cruise lines, and other packagers of travel – to consolidate individual elements of a travel booking including air, hotel, cruise, rail, insurance, tours & excursions “behind the scenes” and transform them automatically into a comprehensive itinerary. A significant advancement beyond travel organizers or brochure-ware, iZento’s Travel Provider Platform is intelligent — it “auto-creates” an interactive itinerary and journal in real-time with nearly unlimited personalization options that can be designated by the provider. Each one-of-a-kind itinerary represents a personalized marketing and selling platform combining branding, sharing, printing, advertising, upselling, and social media functionality.
