Toristy, a software solution that develops curated marketplaces in order to sell tours and activities in the experience sector of travel, today announced a partnership with inDest to strengthen their combined offerings.
InDest is a unique MOBILE ENGAGEMENT platform powered by the world’s largest inventory of in-destination products & services, that uses artificial intelligence to help you to offer tailor-made in-destination products and services to the right traveller at the right time. For instance, when a traveller arrives at their destination their hotel could send an SMS or Whatsapp message with all the services going on in the area for the traveller to purchase in real-time.
Steve Jackson, CEO of Toristy comments "Our sales partners are hotels, transport companies and travel agencies. They are in the business of comfortably getting people from point A, to point B. It’s when they are in point B that we are interested in reaching those guests. InDest's platform allows our partners to trigger SMS or WhatsApp messages when their customers arrive at their destination showing Toristy services on their mobile phones. In addition by using the Toristy platform, InDest can add their own supplier experiences from their wide network of travel partners. We're delighted to get this partnership over the line and look forward to working with InDest".
Maksym Turyanskyy, CEO of InDest comments "With inDest you can reach your travellers just before and during their trip by sending text messages. The overall opening rate of these text messages, sent both as SMS and through WhatsApp, is already averaging 22%, and the booking rate coming through is on average 10% across all our booking categories. We see huge potential in our engagement platform which can considerably help Toristy's partners get in destination experiences in front of their customers. InDest has services from all the major OTAs already but now with Toristy's platform we can allow our B2B customers to add their own unique experiences to the system, enriching our offers too. It's a win win for both companies."
JP Fortune, Toristy's new CTO adds "This is a really exciting time to be joining the company. This technology partnership opens a range of new opportunities for tour operators to get their products in front of potential customers when they are at their destination. I'm looking forward to helping develop the ecosystem we're creating. It's decentralising travel experience distribution by enabling a turnkey option for hotels, transport companies or travel companies to become their own mini OTA for the regions they work in."
