vessul, a newly developed booking and expense service targeting the marine and energy corporate travel sectors, will launch next month, with a range of features tailored to the unique requirements of their travellers.
A multi-city departures function facilitates group travel from different origins to a single arrival location, while the tool also helps manage charter flight bookings.
Other features include a low data-use app for use in areas with very limited connectivity, as well as a live map showing recent incidents of piracy and the delivery of COVID-related notifications.
It’s been developed by UKbased travel startup TapTrip, which noted that currently 98% of bookings in the marine sector are still transacted offline.
The platform, which will be available through TMCs specialising in this area, has recently undergone a three month trial with key clients.
