Passport Online Introduces Tandem Cruise Booking Engine
Passport Online Inc. has introduced a new cruise booking engine that it’s calling Tandem. Tandem integrates the marketing process, the consumer shopping experience, and booking, and is designed to help agents work “in tandem” with their clients to maximize the chance of closing the sale, whether booked by the consumer or the agent.
Tandem has been in development for over a year, with significant input from Passport Online’s extensive agency customer base that has been using the VacationPort and NexCite Website programs for years.
Tandem focuses on both marketing and booking capabilities for travel agents, integrating email marketing, consumer website shopping, and real travel agent consulting and expertise into the solution.
Tandem costs $1,500 per year license fee for existing VacationPort and NexCite users, with a one-time set up charge of $750, and $3 transaction fee for consumer bookings. For new Passport customers, Tandem costs $2,049 per year license fee with a one-time set up fee of $900 and a $3 transaction fee for consumer bookings. All agent bookings are at no cost.
