Berlin, Germany – March 6, 2013 • TourWrist, the best-in-class virtual tour platform, announced today more than 40 travel companies have signed software licensing agreements in the last 90 days to integrate the TourWrist technology within their apps and websites. “Our virtual tour technology empowers travelers to make faster, more informed and confident travel planning and booking decisions,” said TourWrist Founder and CEO Charles Armstrong whom is also a speaker at PhoCusWright@ITB travel-tech conference today. “By integrating our panoramic recording, viewing and sharing experience into their apps and websites, TourWrist will help these innovative travel companies increase bookings and traveler satisfaction.” The TourWrist software development kit (SDK) enables easy travel app and website integration of the device-agnostic TourWrist technology. “If a photo is worth a 1,000 words, then a 360-degree spherical panorama ("pano") is worth 10,000 words to help research, plan and book travel,” said TourWrist SVP and Chief Marketing Officer Dan Smigrod. “Travel, hospitality and tourism companies can now supercharge their mobile and web experiences with our TourWrist pano tech.” The 30+ travel companies licensing the TourWrist technology include 18 travel organizations announced in January; and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Visit Calgary and the Las Vegas Sands Corp. which were announced in November at The Travel Innovation Summit @ The PhoCusWright Conference.
