Vision Travel Introducing Direct2U Corporate Travel App in Canada
Toronto, May 24, 2017 – Vision Travel, a leader in travel management in Canada, will be introducing Direct2U, a corporate travel app and duty of care solution, to the Canadian market at GBTA Conference 2017 Toronto, May 23 – 25.
Direct2U, powered by Mantic Point, is a powerful mobile app designed to deliver both proactive protection and robust travel resources for business travellers. With customizable traveller tracking and disruption management capabilities, companies utilizing Direct2U can monitor the locations of their business travellers and identify any potential travel and safety risks in real-time.
“Duty of care is an incredibly important consideration for any company and Direct2U not only addresses the needs of the business, but also those of the traveller,” says Brian Robertson, President of Vision Travel, Ontario-West.
For the traveller, the app provides a constant connection to Vision Travel, ensuring they have 24/7 support and access to assistance at the push of a button. With its extensive feature set, Direct2U also allows business travellers to consolidate to the use of just one mobile app for all of their travel needs. Travellers benefit from automatic notifications on real-time flight status updates as well as airport guides, mobile check-in, destination guides with interactive maps, weather forecasts, a currency converter and much more.
“Our goal is to make business travellers always feel that they are connected to Vision Travel, no matter where or when they are travelling,” adds Joel Ostrov, President of Vision Travel, Quebec-East.
