SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Host travel agency Andavo Travel is pleased to announce its collaboration with Revelex®, a premier travel technology solution that allows advisors to search, book, and pay in one easy transaction, empowering advisors to manage their business more efficiently providing opportunities for increased profitability.
“In these unprecedented times in the travel industry, it is important to provide technological solutions that can help our advisors maximize their efficiencies and profits,” says Kirsten Little, Vice President of Andavo Travel. “We are excited about this partnership since it will simplify the booking process from start to finish and allow for our independent contractors more choices for their business, leading to more choices for their clients and enabling for a smoother, quick, and seamless transaction. Ultimately, our advisors will be equipped with a solution to allow them to do what they do best – sell travel.”
When it comes to curating and planning travel experiences, travel advisors spend most of their time researching, going in and out of multiple systems, often waiting on hold in call centers to book a single itinerary for their clients. Andavo’s luxury travel advisors are now empowered with a tool that aggregates and distributes information from multiple websites into one user-friendly software, organizing business operations in one system. All an advisor has to do is log into their dashboard to perform a quick search by entering a search term for instant access to a client’s data. Within the profile, an advisor can access previous bookings, build an itinerary, synchronize with worldwide luxury suppliers, have infinite search capabilities, view rate codes, quickly send quotes to clients, manage payments, and access business intelligence reports such as commissions.
“Investing in technology that boosts IC’s effectiveness is important for our host agency. We provide access and support for all three GDS systems to allow our advisors to work within the most skilled platform. We’ve had an over 300% increase in advisor growth since 2019, and as we continue to expand, our team is continually looking at how we can best serve and strengthen our independent advisors, and having technology for non-GDS users and alike, will help us ensure we offer the best resources and solutions for the future,” Little said.
The benefits of this new travel technology for Andavo’s travel advisors include:
- Easier searchability – decrease search time with intuitive searches
- Quick rate comparisons – save your clients money or increase your revenue
- More competitive pricing – create and manage promotions, packages, discounts, and markups
- No currency fluctuations (All prices in USD)
- Auto invoicing – maximize your administration work and increase efficiencies
