Argentinian travel agency Volalá adopts native mobile travel app, a joint offering by Gimmonix Technologies and Trip Sciences.

Volala, Argentina’s fastest-growing OTA, adopts a joint Trip Sciences & Gimmonix solution, native to iOS and Android mobile devices. The solution enables Volala to penetrate the mobile market ahead of competitors and leverage another distribution channel for selling to new audiences as well as for up-/cross-selling to existing consumers.

According to Volala’s CEO, Jose Maria Garcia Casabal, "One of the keys to Volala's success has been its ability to creatively craft powerful alliances, like the launch of La Gaceta Viajes, a travel website of North Argentina's largest media outlet, that is powered by our technology and travel expertise. The collaboration with Gimmonix and Trip Sciences is another prime example of an opportunity we identified and pursued to create a sea-change in our business through collaboration with world-class players."

The Volala app is built on Trip Sciences’ mobile travel e-commerce platform, which comes pre-integrated with Gimmonix’s Travolutionary platform. This way, existing Gimmonix clients can effortlessly become mobile-first, risk-free.

“Volala took the LATAM travel scene by storm in 2016, and they’ve only been increasing their momentum since. Jose Maria leveraged 20 years of industry experience to bootstrap the company without external funding, creating a household name in Argentina in only a couple of years,” said Gimmonix CEO, Andrew Spektor. “Wanting to keep that momentum going, they looked for the best tech in the industry, and we are glad that they chose us.”

Volalá is a travel agency that puts customers first, guiding them from planning their journey to their return home, and providing support and financing options to make their travel dreams a reality.

Trip Sciences does for travel what Shopify has done for retail. Its mobile travel e-commerce platform helps any brand generate new revenue streams from native mobile travel apps.

Gimmonix is a technology company advancing hotel supplier aggregation and distribution technology. Its portfolio includes Travolutionary, Mapping.Works and Reservation.Works.
