Turnaround time of enquires not in sync with industry competitiveness: ETAA President

The association conducts knowledge session in Mumbai for agents
In travel and tourism industry, the turnaround time of an enquiry to destination management company (DMCs) for any particular destination is generally 24 hours which does not go in hand with the competitiveness in the industry today, said Jagat Mehta, President, ETAA at a knowledge session in Mumbai. Excel Software Consultancy and Apple Holidays made presentation to members at the session. 

“Excel Software Consultancy offers accounting services for travel agents, and Apple Holidays allows the clients to create and customise packages offline and online instantly which is a very useful tool for our travel agents and tour operators,” he said.

Speaking at the event, Sohrab Ahmed from Excel Software Consultancy said “ETAA is a good platform where under one roof we can get to meet and network with the experts of the industry. We are in the travel industry for last 29 years and so for us this is a good opportunity to get in touch with the travel agents directly.”

On the same lines, Rajneet Sohal, Manager Sales & Marketing, Apple Holidays, said, “The reason we are here is to create our presence in Mumbai. Participating with ETAA will have a greater impact in the industry for sure. As this is our first time we wanted to understand and observe how this kind of knowledge session works. If we get a good response, we will surely go for the next round of destinations with ETAA. We also presented ourselves at IITT and SATTE.”

Mehta said, “ETAA has given the 2 companies a platform to present themselves as it is a win-win situation for the company as well as for our members. Being a member of ETAA, travel agents can get acknowledged with the new services and also get special discounts.”

When asked about future collaborations of the companies with ETAA Mehta said, “We have already signed deals with Excel Software Consultancy, and are planning to conduct similar knowledge sessions on May 8 in Delhi, May 13 in Pune, May 15 at Kolkata, May 29 in Bengaluru and May 23 in Ahmedabad.”
