Webiny launches cloud service for travel agencies

Webiny, a self-described website platform for business, has released a cloud service for its Content Management System and Booking System for travel agencies.

Following closed development and testing on selected clients, Webiny has now made itself available for everyone in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.
Webiny offers out-of-the-box products to create web portals and websites with Webiny Content Management System, or travel websites with Webiny Booking System.
Besides ready-made products, Webiny enables custom development of web applications, with developers and designers able to create custom experiences for any website.
“We’ve seen the need for advanced web application for our Content Management System and Booking System.
“Currently, most of the travel agency software available has limitations, either in price – higher upfront price – or in integration with other web applications, such as Content Management Systems or Email Marketing software,” explained cofounder, Webiny, Goran Candrlic.
Continuing, Candrlic said: “We’ve worked in online travel for quite some time now and we’ve seen the needs of travel agencies in providing top-of-the-line websites.
“Current solutions are either too complex to use or too hard to implement and integrate. We move it to web and integrate with other products in our portfolio, such as Content Management, Banner Management or Email Marketing Suite.”
“We’ve developed everything from scratch as we wanted to have full control of how our application works,” founder, Webiny, Sven Al Hamad further elaborated.
“Our architecture and workflows enable us to grow and scale rapidly. We’ve also included backup procedures, caching mechanisms and have tightened up security, so business users can rest assured that their databases and client data are secured.”
Webiny uses a SaaS model to provide quality software at a smaller price, and other benefits for end-users include business workflows and process automation.
Target markets are explained as being all businesses that want stable, scalable and secured environment for their websites, travel sites and custom web applications.
“We believe SaaS is the future that has already started,” Al Hamad asserted.
“All recent market research shows that cloud software is on the rise in both demand and offer, so we’ve jumped on that bandwagon. Who can say otherwise when companies such as Google and Microsoft invest heavily into SaaS.
“Our goals include further development of the platform, development of the future Webiny products such as e-Commerce and CRM and formation of community of developers and designers that would use the technology to produce even better web applications and services,” concluded Al Hamad.
