WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Travel Zone is poised to unveil the travel industry's first and only enterprise-level host agency technology solution. Seven years of experience, knowledge and development have been bundled into a point-and-click system that will revolutionize the way agencies work with their outside sales force. The platform is specifically designed to work with agencies that already have their own ARC, IATA or CLIA number. Agencies can enhance their existing host program or start a brand new one. Agent RC offers a robust infrastructure to dramatically grow an outside sales force. Simply called Agent RC, the web-based hosted solution offers any-sized travel agency a completely turn-key system to manage a host/fulfillment operation, all at an affordable monthly subscription cost which the agency can then resell for a profit. It will provide the core infrastructure for any successful host program while providing the agency with a truly 360-degree view of their outside agent network. "The entire industry is moving towards the host agency model and we believe that Agent RC is exactly the right solution at the right time," said Bill Almonte, The Travel Zone's founder and CEO. "Our team developed a system that offers robust and scalable functionality for the largest host agencies while still offering a user-friendly interface for even the smallest travel companies to utilize." The beauty of Agent RC is in its flexibility. It is entirely adaptable to any host program and agencies can also customize the entire application with their own branding, content, booking engines and information. "The response has been overwhelming," said Almonte. "Even before actually launching the platform, we already have many of the industry's largest host agencies, GDS, consortiums and franchise groups beta-testing and making plans to migrate their entire home-based operations." The official launch date, set for July 30, is believed to also make Agent RC the first technology platform to effectively connect host agencies, travel agents, vendors and travelers together into a community-based environment. The centerpiece of the platform is the first collaborative booking manager for travel agents. With a dramatic increase in the number of consumers researching their own travel plans online, the integrated booking manager effectively allows agents to take advantage of this trend while positioning themselves as the expert travel consultant. Agents can create web-based travel planning environments which allow multiple travelers to login at the same time and communicate with each other and the travel agent in the same workspace. As the travel agent progresses through the trip planning process, all travelers are instantly notified of all new activity. "The new collaborative booking manager will change the way professional travel agents work with their clients," said Almonte.
