Inspiretec announces merger of travel tech firms

Welsh entrepreneur Simon Powell’s travel technology companies are to merge in a bid to create a single, strengthened offering under the new Inspiretec brand.

Based in Cardiff, Inspiretec is an established, customer-first technology company that provides end-to-end digital solutions aimed at helping companies grow.

The firm will unveil itself as the principal brand for the two tech companies at the World Travel Market conference, which takes place in London this week.

A year ago, Simon came to the decision to bring the companies together, and this has seen him win major business contracts with brands such as Shearings Holidays and the Caravan and Motorhome Club.

Inspiretec said the merger of these companies under its brand will allow it to offer an end-to-end digital solution with an experienced delivery model. It’ll unveil the product at the conference.

Designed specifically for the travel market, the platform manages interactions and relationships with clients and potential clients. It makes use of data to create a single view of the customer.

Powell said: “Since we invested heavily in bringing a number of companies into our organisation, our capabilities, experience and expertise has increased dramatically.

“On top of the back-end and reservations platform that Comtec is renowned for, we now have complex CRM and web personalisation product developed through our Eysys offering.

“Inspiretec will connect both aspects, and will be joined by specialist web design agency Sequence and Canadian travel loyalty specialist Incentriq, as we marry our offerings under one roof.”

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome club, said: “We’re really happy to appoint Inspiretec as our partner.”

“Their appointment concludes an extensive competitive tendering process, and we felt that Inspiretec shared our vision and demonstrated the capacity for organisations like ours who are looking to achieve a step change in how they engage with their customers.”
