SECAUCUS, N.J. -- Northstar Travel Media, parent of Travel Weekly,
launched an online destination intelligence system offering travel
professionals real-time travel security assessment alerts and
comprehensive destination information.
The system combines Weissmann Travel Reports, which Northstar
owns, with IntelGo's destination intelligence system.
Using the system, travel agents can register clients to receive
destination alerts (via e-mail or wireless device) before, during
and after a trip. An expanded package will integrate the system
into the agency's passenger name record, enabling companies to
track employees as they travel. Reports regarding employee location
can be created in minutes in the event of a crisis.
Weissmann Travel Reports will provide the destination
information, such as country and city overviews, sightseeing
options and hotel and restaurant reviews.
The system will be sold to agencies by subscription and via
content licensing agreements. Existing subscribers of Weissmann
Travel Reports will be upgraded to the system.
Northstar Travel Media publishes worldwide directories,
periodicals and destination information services.
Agents interested in subscribing to the new service can contact
the Weissmann sales department at (800) 776-0720.
