Ahmedabad, July 2nd, 2012: Buildabazaar.com, Infibeam's cloud based e-commerce platform today announced the launch of travel stores for entrepreneurs and businessmen (www.buildabazaar.com/pages/travel). Store owners can access travel inventory from various travel industry partners across flights, hotels and bus and get paid for every booking on their store.
In addition, store owners can add their own local travel inventory which is not easily available as well as focus on specific tours and packages. This opens up a massive opportunity for Travel agents, Corporate, Individuals and Entrepreneurs to open up their own online travel presence or setup close user group access and offer travel services immediately using buildabazaar platform.
The Buildabazaar initiative was conceptualized with a vision to create a customer oriented technology platform. The self service, do it yourself (DIY) platform opened up for retailers in India earlier this year and already there are more than ten thousand retailers that have already started using the platform. The platform serves large as well as small and medium size retailers today.
Speaking at launch, Mr. Manu Midha, VP strategy and planning, Infibeam.com said, "There is huge scope for local and international travel tours and packages to be made available online. We are excited about other services categories that can be made online using our e-commerce platform". Mr. Rajput, who heads the services vertical for Buildabazaar said “local agents with access to unique travel inventory and deals can be made available online using buildabazaar for travel. We welcome travel industry to join in giving whole new dimension to online travel distribution".
The technical assistance offered by Buildabazaar will make the initiative grow by leaps and bounds. Butildabazaar will continue to provide powerful tools for catalog, inventory and order management for both physical and digital products and services.
