Sep 1, 2009

Mumbai: September 1, 2009: Ezeego1.com, the online travel marketplace, has introduced a novel concept in buying travel products via cable television. In a pilot project, it has tied up with ICICI Bank and Logic Eastern, a multi-service operator to provide travel content to its customers located in select cities of UP, Maharashtra, Kerala and West Bengal. 

According to Ms Neelu Singh, COO, Ezeego1.com, "This is an attempt to reach out to the market that’s comfortable with the concept of tele-shopping and we believe that this is a huge market especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities."

The entire process is user-friendly and comfortable. The customer can view the packages and browse through them just like they do when watching television. The product details and packages including images of the hotel, resort and destination are stored on the television pages. Ezeego1 will offer all its holiday products including domestic and international destinations as well as weekend and longer vacation options.

According to Maninder Juneja, Senior General Manager and Head Retail Liabilities Group, ICICI Bank said, “ICICI bank has always been at the forefront in offering innovation, speed and convenience to the customers.” He further added, "the concept of commerce on television is one such initiative in which ICICI Bank is facilitating creation of an environment which will enable B2C commerce on digital television and bring the best of web on television."

In the first phase, call to action is a phone number displayed on these "TV pages" which connects customers to our call center where they can make queries and purchase our travel products.

All payments are made through the credit card using the IVR option.

According to Vineet Wadhwa, Chief Technology Officer, Logic Eastern, "the platform lends itself well to addressability of consumers allowing Ezeego1.com to offer location and customer profile based travel products and offers. This service opens up new avenues for businesses allowing them to be present in households on a 24X7 basis and be able to drive sales through this cost effective and innovative medium."

The service is facilitated by the digitization (installation of Set Top Boxes) of cable TV households and is offered on the TV+ digital cable platform managed by Logic Eastern.
