The travel tech solution that could maximise your bounce-back

Sponsored by TKG Platform

With vaccine rollouts underway and the government’s promises of eased restrictions on the horizon, now is the perfect time to get yourself and your business ready for the bounce-back.

To get a slice of that sweet travel boom cash that the industry desperately needs, travel businesses are going to need to come back with a bang to compete with OTA giants and third-party booking platforms, especially seeing as lockdown has landed us all with online shopping addictions.

In fact, both Tourism Australia and Austrade have tipped improving digital capacity as one of the continuing challenges for the travel industry.

With the right tech, you can give your clients the convenience of an online booking that is backed by the knowledge that comes with consulting with a real-life travel agent.

The Travel Key Gateway (TKG) Platform is an all-in-one tech solution that was designed for retail travel agents, OTAs, tour operators, travel wholesalers and destination management companies, whether you’re online or offline.

Launched by Adelaide-based wholesaler and tour operator Tweet World Travel Group, TKG Platform promises to support the Aussie travel space by boosting efficiency, cutting costs and increasing businesses’ digital capacities in a big way.

The platform combines 17 different software customised for the travel industry, so you can operate your whole business with just one log-in, which means better security and privacy protection, plus greater transparency and control.

Also, you won’t need to reset at least six passwords a day because there are just SO MANY. All you need is one.

TKG Platform comes with a ready-built e-commerce website complete with an online booking engine, which both agents and clients can use to create or manage bookings at any time thanks to secure cloud technologies.

Using automated processes, the platform eliminates human error during the entire booking process and allows you to manage everything from one user-friendly dashboard that enhances collaboration resulting in a major reduction of overhead costs.

These features will be crucial to your business’ bounce-back post-COVID by enhancing its online presence, boosting customer satisfaction, keeping track of things at every touchpoint and increasing revenue opportunities.

As the only travel company in Australia to develop this technology, TKG Platform promises to revolutionise the industry once the time is right to travel again.

Make sure your business gets the recovery it deserves by arming yourself with the right tools.
