2023 wasn't just a year of meteoric growth and unwavering dedication for Sembark Travel Software; it was also a year of valuable lessons and overcoming obstacles. We propelled forward, fuelled by the trust of 200+ new clients from across India and beyond, and partnerships forged at industry events like SATTE'23 and OTM Mumbai. Our journey was paved with 75+ exciting updates and upgrades, transforming the platform into a powerhouse of travel management efficiency.
But it wasn't just about numbers. We poured our hearts into crafting features that revolutionized travel business workflows:
New Features and Upgrades in '23
Industry-First Cab Price Calculator: Say goodbye to guesswork! Sembark introduced India's first universal can calculator which can easily calculate cab cost for any of the system (per km and day running system, per day with extra km charges etc.) or any of the destination like Kerala, Rajasthan, North East, Gujarat, Himachal, Ladakh etc.
Travel Activities with Supplier Contracting: Manage activities seamlessly, from contracts to quotations, all within the platform.

And that's just skimming the surface! We also refined existing features, prioritized customer satisfaction with a dedicated support team, and honed our international capabilities to cater to a wider travel business landscape.
Learning from Challenges, Growing from Within
While our journey was exhilarating, it wasn't without its bumps. We encountered minor obstacles in aligning customer support queries with our roadmap and expanding internationally. But these challenges proved to be invaluable learning experiences. We realized the importance of a dedicated support team, which we promptly established, leading to a 90%+ satisfaction ratio.
Our international endeavours led us to add features like Multi-Currency with Exchange Rates, Destination-wise Team and Addresses, Travel Activities in Quotation, and Multi-Category Quotes, making us better equipped to serve global clients.
