The "Long Tail" of Travel Distribution

The "Long Tail" of Travel Distribution ( The Long Tail, the most recent mantra, not new, but few are able to leverage it to the fullest.

“Thanks to one of our prominent corporate travel technology partner from Silicon Valley, is kind enough to share their passion of the true meaning of The Long Tail, by sending each one of us a gift book by Chris Anderson, of same title.” Jim Menge, AgentFactor CEO expresses with gratitude.

“The Long Tail were pioneered by the likes of Amazon, eBay, NetFlix and many more and most recently iTunes by Apple. The idea of Long Tail is offering product or service inventories that are not considered blockbuster or mainstream through digital distribution method thus does not require physical store shelves. Similar approach can be applied to travel aggregation and distribution, even though the big GDS such as Sabre, Amadeus, Galileo and Worldspan of the world has been around before The Long Tail has been a market lingo, but they were slow to adopt the power of Internet the way companies in Silicon Valley has maximized the potential of The Long Tail by migrating to 3-tiered architecture as opposed to old legacy systems.” Elmer Alinsog, AgentFactor EVP of Products, Business Architect & Partnerships, “AgentFactor’s business model of Bridging the Buy-Side and Sell-Side allows us to economically and rapidly build a mini Travel Ecosystem by aggregating mainstream travel contents along with highly fragmented travel inventories such as Experiential Tours, Private Yacht and Jet Charter [and many more to come]. Distribution of these aggregated travel products and services in a truly unified travel booking engine and XML Data Feed, all in real-time.”

“We can provide the most economical and efficient distribution method of these aggregated travel contents, which considered The Long Tail of travel inventory classification through low cost or no cost Internet Booking Engine or XML/API Web Services. We are very creative how to aggregate, distribute and monetize distribution of mainstream travel inventories and the ones that are considered The Long Tails, for any size of clients from Home Based Agents to Enterprise Scale Distribution Channel, to even the big GDS providers for our real-time Private Yachts contents, which no one in the world has it except us.” Martin Tuncaydin proudly claims.
