Envoy appointed HitchHiker’s guide to the Southern Hemisphere

Envoy Advanced Technologies Pty Ltd has been awarded exclusive distribution rights for the complete HitchHiker Flight product suite in Australasia.

This follows a long term working relationship between the parties on mutual clients like Jetabroad within the region. Envoy’s Partnerships Director, David Allen says

“The combination of Envoy’s sophisticated and market-specific travel software expertise combined with the content, connectivity and pricing capabilities of HitchHiker, means that we can jointly deliver comprehensive and specialised online solutions within a very economical framework for our clients.”

Envoy is currently enhancing a range of powerful Loyalty, Global Profile and Rules Engines that will work seamlessly with the HitchHiker (and other) connected data sources that Envoy utilises. Matt Grieve, UK-based Global Sales and Partnerships Manager at HitchHiker, added

“Being primarily based in Europe we have always wanted a technically strong and reliable partner with strong regional experience and so it was a natural progression to make.”

As a result of this appointment, solutions that can be delivered and enhanced with the added benefit of local support include: Extensive Low-Cost Carrier Content, Flight Booking Applications, Process Automation and Data Management. Envoy’s credentials in building effective and powerful online solutions for the broader travel sector continue to grow, with US and European ferry operators wanting to emulate the solution already provided to Spirit of Tasmania, for example.

Allen continues

“Envoy is a quiet achiever with some big brand names receiving enterprise grade solutions at an extremely competitive price point. It is very rewarding to be sought out by global players based on the results we are producing from Australia and to better cater for this we have created a dedicated Travel Technologies division.”

The partnership between HitchHiker and Envoy has already produced interest from Asian companies who recognise the potential advantages of this new arrangement.
