South African Airways (SAA), Africa’s most awarded airline, and TravPRO Mobile, a leader in mLearning and sales enablement platforms, announce the launch of AfricaPRO, a new B2B online educational training platform for the travel trade in North America. AfricaPRO is a chapter-based training program, with web, mobile tablet and smartphone applications, that provides access to a range of product information to enhance travel advisors’ knowledge and selling capabilities on South African Airways.
AfricaPRO is a five chapter, fully immersive educational and enablement program to help travel advisors learn more about South African Airways and the amazing destinations the airline serves throughout Africa. Each chapter contains a blend of valuable resources that includes product information, maps, shareable images, special offers and links to a full list of other critical websites all built specifically to assist advisors in selling South African Airways and Africa with confidence.
The five chapters include:
- An overview of Africa and the South African Airways product
- How to Get There
- Discover Southern Africa
- Discover East & West Africa
- South African Airways’ Travel Partner Support
Equally important, after training is complete, the mobile AfricaPRO app keeps all the amazing content and collateral at the advisors’ fingertips to better enable them with their sales efforts, to be-the-expert whether weeks, months or years later. The AfricaPRO platform will be continually enhanced with the latest South African Airways product information and offerings to provide travel advisors with an updated resource with the most recent and relevant information for selling SAA.
“SAA is delighted to partner with TravPRO on this new training program to further promote our services to Africa through the AfricaPRO portal,” said Marlene Sanau, vice president, sales in North America for South African Airways. “We are excited to be launching this product and are confident that this new training tool will allow travel advisors to grow their sales on SAA through further in-depth knowledge of our service, products and destinations.”
“The fact that the platform has both a one-to-one training mode, and then repositions the content into a ‘customer mode’ to support selling SAA more effectively is what really sets this solution apart,” said Jonathan Cooper, founder and CEO at TravPRO Mobile. “Additionally, we also include critical information on the various regions of Africa, told in a tight and compelling way to fully engage advisors. This is a fantastic resource for those that want to sell more Africa.”
Travel advisors who complete the AfricaPRO course between October 10 and December 31, will be eligible to win two roundtrip Economy Class tickets on South African Airways from either New York -JFK or Washington-Dulles to Johannesburg or Cape Town and four nights’ hotel accommodations.
