Malaysia’s Sri Sutra Travel has launched a travel booking platform that was built with the needs of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in mind.

The new Sutra SMEBiz Travel platform is powered by TravelCompute, an award-winning travel technology platform. With just a few clicks, users can select and book flights, accommodation, transfers, and access other services that suit their budget, preferences and needs.

Syed Razif Al-Yahya, group managing director and CEO of Sri Sutra Travel, as well as owner of Sutra SMEBoz Travel, said: “Sutra SMEBiz Travel platform acts as the digital travel aggregator and coordinator. We provide full reporting and analysis in real-time so that our clients can manage and track their bookings directly, anywhere and at any time.”

The platform went live on August 22 with “more than a million travel and tourism products, including ancillaries such as travel insurance”, and a network of partnerships including with AirAsia, and KLIA Ekspres, and payment gateways Visa and Maybank.

An interesting service offered on the platform is Blue Ribbon Bags, a service that protects every checked-in bag for a minimum fee and pays up to US$1,000 per bag if it is not returned within four days of arrival.

“Clients will enjoy exclusive promotions from partners and enjoy special rates when they book via SMEBizTravel,” Syed Razif said.

For instance, airline partner AirAsia is offering exclusive access to its MyCorporate products. As well, SME clients will also be able to enjoy a preferred rate when they purchase their KLIA Ekspres tickets through the platform.
