Tineri is a solution that enables tour operators, travel agents and other travel providers to supplement or replace paper/PDF itinerary documents with a stylish, interactive mobile app. The app includes in-depth and in-brief itineraries with pop-up destination info; guide and hotel information; messaging communications between head office, guide and travellers (text, email, chat, voice, video); document storage; daily instant feedback satisfaction surveys; and a simple-to-use CMS for tour operators that can import itineraries from leading back office solutions as well as Word and Excel formats.
Tineri is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand – the hub of Southeast Asia’s tourism industry (the fastest-growing in the world - UNWTO) – and incorporated in Singapore.
The business was founded by Tim Russell, a British expat with over 24 years’ experience in travel and technology at such companies as JAC Travel, Open Destinations, Exotissimo and Remote Lands. He is joined by Business Development Director Alan Lammin, who has held senior sales management roles at Time and Business Week during his 35+ years in Asia; and well-known travel/tech figure Greg Duffell, who held senior roles with Indochina Services, Emirates, Budget and Illusions, and is involved with Tineri in an advisory role.
Tineri is being developed with the cooperation and feedback of leading SE Asia tour operator/DMC Trails of Indochina. Two further companies, adventure travel specialists Grasshopper Adventures, and food walks startup Taste of Thailand, have also signed up as beta testers. There is a strong pipeline (currently 35+ and growing daily) of pre-launch signups waiting to trial the app when it launches fully.
