The hot and wild frontiers of Adventure Travel meet with technology for the masses.
The Adventure Travel industry is hot with more and more travelers electing to add some spice to their getaways. Travelers these days are opting for more than just a flight and a beach stay. Instead they are adding from a range of adrenaline sports, cultural tours, spiritual or educational retreats.
Many high paced consumers of today are electing to shop at home, at night, or on the fly. Wireless researching and purchasing of adventure travel is finally getting up to speed.
For these travelers or adventure outfitters there is a new solution on the web horizon worthy of a look – Adventure Engine. This new company is designed to provide power to the industry. It consolidates adventure travel seats onto a centralized database so trips can be researched, bought and sold in real time with efficiency.
With buzz words like RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, blogs and real time booking on the rise, Adventure Engine is taking the challenge head on and bringing this desired technology to the masses.
For the adventurous soul, there is now a source of up-to-the-minute information.
“People already use RSS feeds to keep track of everything from stock prices, sport scores and news,” said Nick Howald, IT Manager with Adventure Engine. “Now they can add a stream of data to their computer or handheld that updates them on the latest trips and discounts in their favorite getaway activity.” This new way of doing business is ideal for people who want to be alerted to new trips or seat sales in everything from mountain bike trips to cat skiing.
Adventure Engine is also using this new technology to change the way adventure tour companies do business. Gone are the technically challenging days when creating an online sales area and distribution was expensive. With the advent of program sharing, Adventure Engine can empower any webmaster, agent, end user or tour operator to hook in with a click of the mouse.
”We just saw the growing trend of end consumers and agents needing up to the minute interfaces for buying these types of trips” said Amber Hayes CEO of Adventure Engine. “The obvious flipside is the industry providers requiring an easy to use affordable technology to meet that consumer demand. It’s the way of the future and we are seeing a wide variety of users joining the system.”
