Travel Startup Umapped Brings Suppliers, Agents And Travelers Together Under One Collaborative Itinerary And Experience Platform To Deliver Genuine Engagement
Umapped is the new collaborative itinerary and experience solution for travel brands, online suppliers, and the travel agency community that leverages travelers social networks and friends to enhance their travel journey. Unlike many startups that come out of the gate with great ideas but little to no results, Umapped has already seen substantial interest in their platform and acquired a significant customer base from around the world with over 100 Virtuoso agencies, Travel Leaders, Vivanta by Taj and Top Altantico. Umapped will be showcasing their latest innovations at the upcomingPhocuswright Conference.
Umapped brings suppliers, agents, and travelers together to collaboratively create content-rich itineraries, consolidating bookings, curated content, and real-time updates into a mobile tool for travelers that extends to their personal and social networks. The platform is driven by big data utilizing sophisticated algorithms, allowing travel companies to send relevant content at the right time to generate additional revenue and engage their customers throughout the entire travel lifecycle.
Umapped offers its white label SAAS platform to travel brands including TMCs, travel agencies,and OTAs, tour operators, resorts, and DMOs.
“Whether you’re a travel company, a travel professional or traveler, this platform is changing the way people are planning and experiencing travel together,” said John Gilfillan, co -founder of YTP Young Travel Professionals. “YTP selected Umapped as their partner to bring an innovative itinerary tool to the next generation of industry leaders.”
The market opportunity for genuine engagement solutions between travel companies and travelers is growing exponentially, and Umapped is leading the pack. The company was founded by two visionary entrepreneurs with a passion for travel, Lisa Israelovitch, CEO and Thierry Wong, CTO, and is based out of Montreal, QC in Canada.
“The travel industry continues to develop fragmented applications that deliver a subset of what travelers want and need,” explains Lisa. “As travel companies interact with their customers using a variety of channels, they are putting the onus on customers to organize their travel details and search for the relevant information they may have read months ago or is buried in their inbox. Current itinerary tools only enable travelers to consolidate bookings. The Umapped platform connects travelers to their friends and social networks while enabling travel brands to proactively create relationships with their customers.”
