Turpal is a post-departure SAAS Solution with affordable technology and quality connectivity tools that facilitates access to live inventory for the operators while providing them with an effective platform to communicate with travelers.
Once a reservation is complete, the operator connects the traveler to their Turpal application in order to share live updates and other details of their itinerary such as flight, accommodation, transportation as well as any excursion or services that they pre-processed.
All communication with the traveler is through the Turpal app. Through this smart app, travelers get access to personalized recommendations with the ability to book on spot, resulting in a superior experience for the traveler translating into sales growth for the operator.
Turpal App Powered by analytics and consumer intelligence maximizes selling opportunities to the customer (up to 5x) while establishing a secure channel for the passenger to view their itinerary, get access to live updates and interact with the service provider in real-time.
Operation Panel equipped with an importer engine allows the service provider to build itineraries, manage the travel journey, and enable communication with the passengers through the app. Real-time information on accommodation, trip itinerary, and other details such as pick-up time, location, and details of service provider, as well as any changes, are communicated through in-app notifications.
Service Providers upload their products and services, and source the same from other suppliers. Product Panel allows service providers to define different types of availability and markup for each product, and give clients access to book them.
