By Poovenraj Kanagaraj – December 14, 2020
Malaysian based travel technology startup, Tixcarte Group Sdn Bhd (Tixcarte) has announced Tixcarte.com, a ticketing distribution platform that connects attractions and activities to a worldwide community of resellers.
Tripcarte’s main targets are resellers such as travel agents including online travel agencies (OTA), airlines, hotel concierges and e-Wallet. These components are becoming more significant to the travel industry.
Recognising B2B ticketing distribution as an emerging travel tech, Tixcarte is optimistic with the industry growth that is currently worth US$120 billion worldwide, targeting 20 percent of the business focusing on the domestic and SEA market.
Looking at the trend and the current pandemic situation, it is clear that leading travel companies are looking towards a vehicle to transition from building their own products and services to just linking seamlessly with an ecosystem of attractions and activities.
For merchants like attractions and activities, digitising their services will be a costly and time consuming exercise, apart from the complex technological requirement that is needed.
TixCarte technology will allow merchants to instantly accept, verify and admit mobile tickets from every reseller while keeping their current ticketing and/or POS system in place. “Tixcarte is here to help solve the legacy problems for modern travel platforms and Apps.
Some of the problems like manual processes, rigid cancellation policy, bulk buy, having to work on various B2B attraction ticketing systems, just simply a bane making it difficult to sell on the different platforms.
TixCarte offers an inventory-less ticketing model to over 3,500 attractions and activities in South East Asia. Via our tech tools and Automated Programming Interface (APIs), attractions and activities would be able to increase sales by automatically accessing various reseller and distribution channels rather than depending only on their conventional travel agents.” said Parthiven Shan, CEO & Founder of Tixcarte.
Managing resellers will be at their fingertips, with the sales tools allowing them to manage their own resellers account access, giving them the ability to start selling on multiple sales channels.
Currently partnering with AirAsia, Malindo Airlines, Tiqets, Boost and Wechat Pay, Tixcarte targets a gross merchandise value (GMV) of RM50 million towards 2022. With the onboarding of more partners and merchants onto the platform, Tixcarte is bullish with the projection and has a positive outlook for the partners to grow their businesses.
