Orchestra, the platform for distributing travel offers, wants to extend its model internationally
Travel agency, tour operators, hoteliers… Today, tourism professionals sell their offers on a multitude of online distribution channels. It is precisely on the niche that Travelsoft is positioned. This Parisian company is developing the platform Orchestra which allows you to broadcast the same travel ad on several distributors, such as LastMinute, Opodo or eDreams and Private Sale Le Voyage. The solution also offers to manage reservations, prices and payments.
“Today we are interconnected with around a hundred travel producers: tour operators, cruise lines, accommodation providers. We are also connected to many aerial sources, including GDS (global distribution system, ndlr), Amadeus and hotel sources, to create directly in our system packages, stays or circuits ”, explains to Frenchweb Christian Sabbagh, the founder and president of Travelsoft.
Founded in 2000, it was not until 2005 that the company started publishing the Orchestra software. Ten years later, the company, which has around sixty employees, claims 1 billion euros in business volume transiting through its platform. Orchestra, whose economic model is based on the marketing of a subscription and the deduction of a commission on sales made, would generate a turnover of around ten million euros, according to Christian Sabbagh. Today, the company has set itself the objective of strengthening its international activity, in order to achieve 30% to 40% of its revenues there, against a current 15%.
