Bit Milan 2016 International Tourism Fair
For more than three years we have been to the Bit fair with new projects and developments of our software to present to one of the most promising markets in Mediterranean Europe. This year, like last time, we presented important developments;
- Document Scanner
- Export Data to the Police
- System Search for accommodation by Map.
The truth is that the tourist and holiday offer in the Alpine country is varied and important but only 47% of total holiday tourism is digitized and available for sale online. The rest appears to follow the traditional channels of sales through tour operator, agencies or magazines.
Much work remains to be done to advance technologically, but also re-education is an important requirement of the market.
The Italian market is a largely untapped and full technological evolution market, Italians are generally fans of new technologies, however in this sector are not as advanced as other markets such as the French, British or Spanish.
Avantio Vacation Rental Management Software visit Bit Milan 2016 Fair
This year we met a significant number of potential customers, organizations that have developed their businesses for several years and yet still have old or unprofitable technologies. Some agencies, for example, are with a hoteliers Channel Manager who charge a percentage of reservations and have few specialized sales channels in Holiday Rentals whilst others continue to run with barely any installable software upgrades and are too rigid to evolve.
We were very excited to share information and good times with the likes of the portal Homeaway and we are pleased to see that Avantio and Homeaway share a vision and a mission working in the Italian market.
Our company has evolved the right technology and our main mission is to help companies to expand and sell more. It is a privilege that few companies have and we are very proud to be up to the demands of the Italian market.
After this show, probably during the month of April, we will return to Italy to see our clients and organize meetings where we can present the most imminent developments, namely:
- SSL Certification website
- PCI compliant PCI wallet
In a highly competitive and complex market such as the Italian market, it is better to be well organized and adapted to the real needs of the sector, so Avantio remains very interesting and valuable when it comes to choosing the right technology partner choice.
