Darren and Paul spotted a business opportunity while working together at a major GDS company. They saw a disconnect between GDS software developers and travel industry end-users. Despite there being powerful, built-in APIs available, no one was taking advantage of them to create more flexible or user-friendly systems.
Darren and Paul possessed that rare combination of software development ability and travel industry knowledge and resolved to make life easier for travel management companies (TMCs) and consultants. When they shared their vision with industry insiders they received such an enthusiastic response, they decided to take the plunge. Navitas Solutions was born.
The business grew rapidly through word of mouth and ten years on Navitas is the developer of choice for dozens of TMCs ranging from boutique agencies to global travel solution providers.
Now, together with the ever-helpful Emma, Darren and Paul continue to develop innovative, bespoke software solutions and add-on products that are making GDS’ everywhere a little friendlier and a whole lot more effective.
