Online Travel Industry Booms
TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As On the Move Systems Corp. (OTCBB: OMVS) prepares its new online transportation portal for launch, many experts are saying that there's never been a better time to enter the fast-growing sector. Industry analysts SDL reported this week that 80 percent of travelers now make their arrangements online.
In a report titled "The Modern Traveler: A Look at Customer Engagement in the Travel Industry," SDL made that claim after surveying 4,000 consumers in the United Kingdom, United States and Australia. Eighty-four percent of respondents stated that a positive online or Web experience is important or very important when booking travel.
That's good news for OMVS as it builds a ground-breaking new Web service designed to offer fantastic deals on chartered airlines, luxury ground transportation, intermodal shipping and more. By delivering top-notch customer service to clients whose transport of choice aren't offered by bigger, established companies such as Priceline and Expedia, OMVS intends to carve out its own growing share of the $300 billion online travel industry.
In order to achieve that goal, OMVS recently signed a development partnership agreement with ByterDyne, an architect of scalable, custom software solutions across the energy, transportation/logistics and e-commerce industries. Together, the two companies are working to complete the development of OMVS' ISTx platform, the digital heart of an online portal designed to connect users with discounted transportation options from charter jet service to luxury ground shuttles and more.
The ISTx platform is a major part of OMVS' plans to market and develop new solutions that will allow it to compete in the online travel market alongside Priceline.com (NAS: PCLN) , TripAdvisor.com (NAS: TRIP) and Expedia.com (NAS: EXPE) .
