Turnit Ride to power RedCoach USA expansion
Turnit, a travel technology company developing the world's leading, off-the-shelf reservation & inventory management platform for the ground-based travel industry, has expanded its presence in the USA by launching RedCoach on its Turnit Ride platform.
RedCoach, a premier luxury motorcoach company, provides intercity coach services across Florida and Texas. RedCoach’s fleet of 25 buses offers travelers first (27 seats), business (38 seats) and economy (56 seats) class options with quality amenities including bed-like seats that recline up to 140 degrees, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, 110v and USB outlets for electronics, on-board entertainment, complimentary snacks, reserved seating, bus tracking for up-to-date information on arrival times, no baggage fees, and more.
“The fact that RedCoach has since its inception had the goal of providing the best service is what inspires us - with a customer aiming at excellence we can also enhance our product and will become even more fitted to serve the US coach market,” says Ülo Säre, CEO of Turnit.
According to Säre, the Turnit Ride solution is well-equipped to serve RedCoach’s current needs and future ambitions. Having a wide omnichannel sales network and being able to distribute inventory also through resellers like OTA-s is definitely one of the key needs for RedCoach. This requires a capable API and scalable service to put up with a potentially very high amount of search and booking requests at any time. Campaigns and special offers that are part of the business model will demand even more from the backend infrastructure.
Secondly, the market is highly competitive and thus the pricing strategy may change very often to react to competitor moves or other events requiring fast modification of the prices or route network. Flexibility in the core data modification and integrations to external tools like revenue management services helps to reach the goal of staying effective while growing the operations.
And as the expansion takes RedCoach to new routes and markets, it is equally important to be able to use the same tools everywhere in a seamless way while keeping potential local specialties in mind.
“Turnit’s longtime experience serving coach and rail companies in Europe, Africa, and Northern America gives us the confidence that they can be a technology partner bringing us to the next level with our operations,” confirms Florencia Cirigliano, VP of Marketing and Sales at RedCoach.
