Ticketvala, India’s leading bus ticket distribution platform, today announced that they have crossed 1 million in transactions since its launch. The crossing of this milestone by ticketvala.com reflects a clearly emerging trend of technology adoption by bus operators across India, in a bid to organise and expand a largely unorganized sector. Since its launch in July 2007, Ticketvala.com enabled customers to book tickets via the website or call center and also offers the option of home delivery of tickets in select cities.
Ticketvala through its experience and understanding of the bus ticketing space realized that the complete absence of technology use in the industry was striking. The company therefore built a rock solid distribution platform which provides value to all the players in the supply chain. Ticketvala is not merely a web distribution channel for bus tickets, but an integrated bus ticket distribution platform. The bus operators can use the system and increase their operational efficiencies. The uptake of this technology by the industry has been rapid and early adopters of this technology who are reaping the benefits include Konduskar Travels, Gujarat Travels, Amsons Travels, Kesineni Tours and Travels among many others.
“We foresee a phenomenal growth in this market and believe that the changing paradigm of the consumers and bus operators will help boost the market. We are also delighted to see the eagerness with which the bus operators are adopting and adapting to new technologies and systems. It is a clear endorsement of our belief that there is huge opportunity and potential to organise this sector using technology” said Mr. Haranath Lokanadham, president & chief executive officer, Travis Internet Pvt. Ltd.
