Advantage Travel Centres is the UK’s largest membership organisation for independent travel agents
Using its links with over 200 leisure and business travel suppliers, such as Thomas Cook, Kuoni and Cosmos, Advantage offers local travel agents enhanced commissions, cost savings and marketing support.
Members also benefit from business development resources such as HR and legal advice, business continuity planning, a broker service and financial guidance. Details of all membership benefits are available on the new intranet.
The business challenge Advantage Travel Centre’s Sales & Marketing Director, Colin O’Neill and Online Promotions Manager, Wendy Missenden stress that the main objective of the new intranet site was simplicity.
“Travel agents need to be able to go onto the site and easily find what they are looking for,” says Colin O’Neill. “They are a diverse group. Where one might specialise in cruises and holidays in Australia, another will focus on business travel. It was important that the site content reflected these individual variations, so what we were looking for was versatility.”
Why did Advantage Travel Centres choose Pixl8? According to Colin it was for the following three reasons:
- They had worked with Pixl8 before and knew of their track record for delivering projects on time. Pixl8 designed their consumer facing holiday offer website loveyourtravelagent.co.uk and the Advantage Travel Centres conference and business travel websites.
- Pixl8 are a creative team, regularly coming up with their own ideas and suggestions for web design and online applications. Pixl8 has wide experience of working with membership organisations and meeting their different needs.
- Pixl8 are nice people to work with and are competitively priced.
