Axus automates the creation of trip proposals and itineraries for travel managers and delivers booking confirmations and custom travel details to the traveler through a unique URL and dynamic mobile app. Key features of Axus include flight notifications, driving directions, destination guides, the ability to generate PDF itineraries, access to supporting documents and in-app messaging.

"The addition of the Axus planning tool and mobile application is an important strategic enhancement to our suite of subscription workflow and content tools for travel professionals," said Thomas Kemp, CEO & Chairman of Northstar Travel Group.

Northstar is the parent company of Travel Weekly.

Axus founder and CEO Julia Douglas and her team will continue with Axus as it becomes part of Northstar, working with Sheila Rice, vice president of Northstar's Information Products Group.

"We are excited about working with Julia and her team to provide a one-stop solution to our customers with travel42 and the Axus planning tool and itinerary app," Rice said.
