Axis Softech: Offering Comprehensively Integrated Travel Portals


According to a report, India’s travel and tourism market is poised to grow at the rate of 7.5 percent in 2015, and by end of the year, the travel and tourism sector is speculated to contribute Rs. 8.22 trillion to India’s GDP. With this growth, the industry is witnessing small and large businesses venturing into this domain. There are numerous travel agencies, hoteliers and conglomerates looking for a travel portal to manage the day-to-day operations of their travel business. Although there are several companies which provide Travel Portal Development and related services, most of them either have a limited range of products or they are not able to provide comprehensive Application Program Interface (API) integrations to meet the varying requirements of different types of customers, and fail the delivery deadlines.

Axis Softech, headquartered in New Delhi, provides integrated solutions for travel businesses and removes their burden of finding API solutions at extra cost, getting a software product developed and integrating those APIs with the product. “We bring in end-to-end supply, accumulating all the APIs and all the suppliers on one platform, integrating it with the product and then providing a ready made solution,” says Gyanesh Kumar, Director, Axis Softech. The company provides end-to-end solutions for the travel segment by offering Online Travel Products & Services to its customers, helping them manage and maintain those, providing 24/7 Booking Support and helping them market their offerings using different online and offline mediums. Axis Softech is a leading player in this segment and has market penetration of approximately 70-75 percent with a total of 70 leading travel portals amongst its active clienteles.
