MONTROSE, Calif., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MTravel, a top five host agency, has partnered with Umapped to roll out a new mobile itinerary and trip publisher for its independent travel professionals. Umapped provides travel advisors and their clients with ultra-simple tool to create customized travel itineraries that can be accessed via the web, mobile and as offline PDFs.
Designed With the Travel Professional in Mind
Unlike mobile itinerary builders that are built from the traveler's viewpoint, Umapped includes features that are important to travel professionals. Itineraries are branded with the agency name and logo and permit collaboration between agents, clients and even supplier partners. Regularly used destination content may be stored in the Umapped documents library or pulled directly from travel42, giving agents the option to include industry-vetted content for their travelers. Umapped also integrates with several GDS platforms and ClientBase, with agents easily adding confirmed and proposed bookings for transportation, accommodation, activities, insurance and more for clients in their database.
Efficiency as the End Goal
With itinerary design absorbing much of a typical travel professional's day, Umapped saves its users considerable time.
"This tool gives agents the ability to build stunning, mobile-friendly itineraries that can be updated on-the-go," said Andi Mysza, head of MTravel. "Features like a master trip calendar, live flight updates and real-time chat will help eliminate the confusion and frustration involved with constant itinerary revisions."
"Mtravel advisors using Umapped have received extremely positive feedback from their clients who are delighted to have a live mobile communication channel with their travel advisors as they plan their trips," adds Lisa Israelovitch, CEO of Umapped. "As a leading Virtuoso host agency, Mtravel recognizes that mobile itineraries are a must-have for their travel advisors to stay engaged with their clients and boost their productivity and revenue."
