Training for travel app Shortlist For The Travel Marketing Awards

One of our recent apps, developed for TFT (Training for Travel) has been shortlisted in The Travel Marketing Awards for use of innovative mobile technology.

"TFT Tip of the day" is a stylish page turning app, styled around a little desk calendar, which alerts you every mid-day with a useful bit travel knowledge. Each tip focuses on a specific country and often suggests things to look out for while you are there, including local cultural as well as time specific information.

The app is independently updated by Training for Travel via a web infrastructure Duo created allowing new tips to be added and scheduled for future distribution. Tips can be added for any date in the future, but only become visible to the users on the date specified. The app actively downloads the tips well in advance so new tips can pop up at mid-day even when there is no internet connection present.

Training for Travel are a leading and award winning supplier of specialist training to the travel industry, the app was developed with the customers in mind who benefit greatly by the drip feed of useful travel information. The app allows their clients to literally learn something new, every day.

The award which is announced on the 22nd of March was up against stiff competition across the travel industry. The app which has been actively downloaded by TFT clients, and prospective clients since August last year, has proven to be a valuable part of TFT's marketing and is something they plan to build upon in the future.
