North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 2008/06/20 - Rezgo, an online booking solution for tour and activity companies, has been selected for round three of the New Ventures BC Competition.
Rezgo.com, an innovative tour and activity booking system that connects suppliers with customers and travel retailers for real-time bookings, has been selected to move forward to round three in the New Ventures BC (NVBC) business competition. Rezgo was chosen out of 149 other companies to move into round three of the competition.
“I am very proud to have Rezgo.com recognized as a Top 30 company by New Ventures BC.” Said Stephen Joyce, CEO of Sentias Software, the company behind Rezgo. “This recognition really validates all of the efforts our team has put into making an innovative product for tour and activity suppliers and their retailers.”
The New Ventures competition consists of four competitive rounds of increasing complexity, with a jury eliminating businesses after each round. In the words of NVBC Board Member Michael Volker, the jury's job is to "Pick the most likely to be commercially viable with the greatest value". In round three the Rezgo team will be paired with two mentors that have both technology and investment and venture capital back grounds. These mentors aim to help NVBC competitors strengthen their business pitches for the final round of the competition.
Rezgo.com helps tour and activity providers sell their experiences. Suppliers are able to sell through their own Web site, sales desks, call-centers, and through a growing number of sales partners. Rezgo.com is used by OTAs, DMOs and tour and activity providers such as whale watching, sight-seeing, bus tours, bike tours, helicopter tours, river rafting, hiking, adventure tours and many others. Rezgo.com is free to use and provides an impressive array of functions. Rezgo Pro, a premium service, is available for suppliers who require more sophisticated booking capabilities.
