“A real game changer”: Aussie wholesaler diversifies with new travel tech division

Adelaide-based wholesaler and tours operator Tweet World Travel has decided to diversify its product portfolio and venture into the technology sector.

The company has launched its own travel tech division called TKG Platform (the acronym stands for Travel Key Gateway), which aims to provide technology enablers for travel businesses worldwide.

According to Tweet World Travel, TKG Platform is tailored to suit the travel industry with a mission that is to help companies to grow their business with the right tech solutions, reducing operational time and the overheads.

TKG Platform is branding itself as an all-in-one solution combining extensive travel industry experience and state-of-the-art technology that will help agents grow their business with ease.

The platform features a comprehensive dashboard with a variety of built-in features tailored to suit retail, online and wholesale agencies and tour operators/DMCs.

It also offers a ready-built e-commerce website for B2B, B2C and B2B2C companies, including an online booking engine.

Susan Frisby-Smith, senior business development executive at Tweet World Travel, said TKG Platform will be “a real game changer” for the industry.

“Creating that one-stop shop will significantly save valuable time, providing the ability to search and make bookings instantly, plus the powerful dashboard with an online reservation management system connecting to a CRM,” she said.

“We have utilised our extensive experience and knowledge of the travel industry’s dynamics to develop cutting-edge solutions tailored to the industry, which will ultimately lead to exponential revenue growth.”

Thuy Carroll, managing director of Tweet World Travel, said: “This is a truly powerful tool that will benefit all parties in the travel ecosystem.

“Our comprehensive platform features automation of the entire travel booking process and management in one place. This is a much-needed technology to get the travel industry ready for a post-COVID-19 bounce-back.”
