Trisept Solutions to Power Monaker Group’s Flagship Brand, NextTrip
MILWAUKEE (August 15, 2016) — Trisept Solutions, a travel technology firm propelling the biggest names in travel, announces a new agreement to power NextTrip, Monaker Group’s flagship brand. NextTrip represents over 1.4 million properties including vacation home rentals, resort residences, rooms and unused timeshares. Trisept’s agreement with Monaker Group (OTCQB: MKGI) will fuel NextTrip’s growth through expanded product offerings and distribution.
Both travel agents and consumers will benefit from NextTrip’s new capabilities. Powered by Trisept’s travel merchandising platform Synapse, NextTrip.com is greatly expanding and enhancing its offerings with the ability to book comprehensive vacation packages by complimenting its vacation rental inventory with a wide array of flights, hotels, rental cars, tours and activities. Furthermore, NextTrip’s alternative lodging product will be available on Trisept’s premier travel agent portal, VAX VacationAccess. This addition will give VAX’s network of over 70,000 travel agents access to book millions of unique vacation rentals.
“Integrating NextTrip’s product offerings into our VAX platform will give agents for the first time instant confirmation and an easy, commissionable way to sell vacation rentals,” said John Ische, president and CEO of Trisept.
NextTrip product offerings will also be fully integrated with Xcelerator, the travel technology solution that allows agents to service their clients and effectively run their business on one secure platform.
“Trisept has the most advanced technology available for leisure vacation packaging today,” said Bill Kerby, chairman and CEO of Monaker Group. “Expanding NextTrip’s capabilities and access to agents and consumers will accelerate our growth and differentiate us from our competition.”
NextTrip will be integrated to Synapse and VAX over the several months with a target completion by the end of 2016.
