I think this will be huge.

Congrats to Travelstop team – awesome stuff.

Skift Top Travel Startups to Watch 2019 – Skift:


Money Raised: $1.2 million
Headline Investors: SeedPlus

Skift Take: TravelPerk and TripActions are popularizing cloud-based business travel management in the U.S. and Europe. The startups offer services for high-growth, midsize businesses that are too small to hire full-service travel management agencies but too large to cope with travel booking hassles on their own. Travelstop aims to bring a locally relevant and uniquely sophisticated version of this concept to Southeast Asia. It can cope with local tax issues and preferred payment methods, and it can offer bookings on most regional and budget carriers. CEO Prashant Kirtane previously co-founded Travelmob, a vacation rental booking service that Expedia Group acquired in 2015.

Good tweetstorm on portfolio management stuff

This is a good one. Been through trying to figure this stuff out. It isn’t easy.

Customer Service wins again

Old post here about customer service ::

I am reminded of this due to a tweet I saw today:

Bottom line is that performing amazing customer service is the best form of marketing ever.

You will retain customers which is cheaper than buying new ones and word of mouth will bring you new ones.

Plus you and your employees will feel better about what they do.
