Azamara has rolled out a new trade partner program named, Azamara Alliance.
The boutique cruise line says Azamara Alliance is a sign of its commitment to supporting and strengthening its relationships with its loyal travel partner community.
“Focusing on mutual success, shared commitment, and a true sense of teamwork, Azamara Alliance launches with new tools and technologies to create a seamless experience for trade partners with a new booking platform, more intuitive Azamara Connect trade partner portal, and expanded contact centre,” Azamara said.
Patrice Willoughby, Chief Sales Officer, International of Azamara said, “A priority in this new chapter for Azamara is to provide our valued travel partners with the best support and the most efficient experience possible. With the launch of our Azamara Alliance program, it is our mission to develop opportunities to support our travel partners and equip them with the tools, so we succeed together.”
Going forward, Azamara will continue to expand and enhance its relationships and offerings with travel partners as an independent cruise line. For the new tools, live training sessions will be hosted in January 2023 with self-paced learning tools to help travel partners familiarise themselves with the new booking platform and to get the most out of the new Azamara Connect.
Azamara Alliance’s launch will include the following programs:
- New Versonix Seaware Touch Booking Platform
Seamlessly accessible through Azamara Connect, the all-new booking engine – foreshadowed exclusively by LATTE earlier this year – with easily accessible features and functionality for travel partners to book across channels over one integrated platform with a 360° view of everything. Travel partners can book FIT, plus back-to-back and combo voyages, including cruise, air, shore excursions, onboard packages, and more.
- All-New Azamara Connect Trade Portal
The entirely new and far more intuitive Azamara Connect will provide on-demand access to imagery, promotions, marketing templates, and all the tools travel partners may need to support sales efforts.
- Expanded Contact Centre
To provide faster and more responsive service, Azamara’s Contact Center is doubling their number of agents and integrating new systems for faster answers and information, such as callback services beginning later this month.
