Visit Orlando Unveils New App-Enabled Travel Academy
The Theme Park Capital of the World® has teamed up with leading m-learning specialist TravPRO Mobile to create an all-new Orlando Travel Academy that is more attuned to the requirements of the modern, digitally savvy travel advisor.
The new Orlando Travel Academy provides training as well as a round-the-clock Sales Companion™; designed to support travel advisors long after they have completed the training.
The program starts with engaging multi-modal learning chapters focusing on some of the basics, including neighborhoods and where to stay. Advisors are then introduced to modules that lean more into the experience of being in Orlando, from theme parks to culture and cuisine.
Once all these chapters are completed, advisors can officially call themselves an Orlando Expert. They will then gain access to the RETAIN section of the program, where they can enjoy unlimited access to previously seen content to help maintain their product knowledge.
Once graduated, advisors can take advantage of a range of offers including up to 50% off select theme park tickets and 40% off room rates. They will also gain access to exclusive offers and discounts on dining, shopping and attractions such as SeaWorld Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center and many more.
By working with TravPRO Mobile, Visit Orlando have been able to able to extend the capabilities of the Orlando Travel Academy beyond straightforward training and into sales enablement, whereby advisors can download and share any images, videos, tips and brochures to help inspire their clients and turn enquiries into bookings.
“The new Orlando Travel Academy provides a fun and engaging learning experience – reflective of our destination – to help travel advisors learn, promote and sell Orlando”, said Visit Orlando President and CEO Casandra Matej. “The new Orlando Travel Academy App allows travel professionals the flexibility to learn about our destination anywhere, at any time.”
Advisors have a range of sales collateral and support to choose from in the SELL section, as well as a Directory featuring hundreds of suppliers that can be searched for directly or found using the filters.
Orlando Travel Academy is accessible on any device including tablets and smartphones thanks to the native app downloadable on iOS or Android. This means travel advisors can keep this tool at their fingertips to share with clients anytime, anywhere, and from any device. Their training progress and favorites are synced between web and mobile versions, so they can truly promote and sell on the go as an Orlando Expert.
