How Trav­el­port agents are work­ing in the “smart age”

In or­der to pro­vide trav­el­ers with the best op­tions – hav­ing the right travel con­tent is king. But in to­day’s world, where con­tent comes at us from all an­gles and mul­ti­ple sources, agen­cies need the right sell­ing tools to man­age this ef­fi­ciently. An ex­am­ple of this is Trav­el­port Smart­point, which puts a whole new world of con­tent at the agents’ fin­ger­tips through its branded fares and an­cil­lar­ies fea­ture. Agents no longer have to worry about keep­ing up with the lat­est air­line prod­uct of­fer­ings and hav­ing to visit each air­line web­site to ver­ify. In­stead, with Trav­el­port Smart­point, agents have a one-stop-shop to view pho­tos of cab­ins, com­pare fares, in­clu­sions and book­able an­cil­lar­ies – all within their agency work­flow. It also en­ables them to eas­ily iden­tify ad­di­tional rev­enue op­por­tu­ni­ties to cross-sell and up-sell dur­ing the book­ing process and share cur­rent pho­tos and im­ages of what the trav­eler is about to pur­chase, for com­plete trans­parency. We are now part of an “ex­pe­ri­ence cul­ture” that did not ex­ist five years ago. The ever- con­nected dig­i­tal con­sumer now ex­pects a travel ex­pe­ri­ence that is im­me­di­ate, per­sonal, re­li­able and en­gag­ing. With the wealth of con­tent de­liv­ered through Trav­el­port Smart­point, in­clud­ing ho­tels, cars, maps and flight routes, the agent can now eas­ily cre­ate a per­son­al­ized ex­pe­ri­ence for their trav­eler. We call it work­ing in the “Smart Age” as it’s a win-win for ev­ery­one.
