Trailstream has launched a desktop sales application, designed to assist agents in the selling process by combining brochure content with video and delivering it straight to the point of sale.The company has teamed up with Cosmos and created a sponsorship package that offers agents the chance to benefit from trailstream.tv free of charge for a small uplift in sales annually.
To solve bandwidth issues the comapny will provide agents with a local media server which is located in-store and is connected to their network.High quality full screen video can then be played on demand without having an impact on existing systems.
The company's managing director, Dave Howard, said: “We are really excited about trailstream.tv, having long recognised the need to deliver all of the benefits of our brochure content database and video library to the travel agent. Today’s consumer has access to a variety of travel media and content at their fingertips and the agent needs to be able to offer a similar user experience in-store. Due to bandwidth and network connectivity restrictions video has yet to make the same impact in-store as it has online and trailstream.tv solves any buffering or viewing issues for the agent.
“Video on demand has arrived in store. Our media server is unobtrusive and we update it overnight to avoid conflict with day to day operations. Our complete video library is available to agents who can now offer their customers a significantly better experience than they would get at home with the added value of face to face personal service.”
The video library contains 2,300 professionally filmed and edited videos of the most visited hotels in the most popular resorts across the Mediterranean and beyond.
Resort guides, cruise and long haul videos are due to be added in the future.
