Travel technology start-up TRAVELSPICE on Thursday announced an increased use of data analytics, machine learning, BOT services and the scalable infrastructure offered by Microsoft Azure to support India’s only and rapidly growing e-commerce hotel booking platform. TRAVELSPICE is exclusively designed for flexible and brand agnostic customers who decide the price they want to pay for a particular area and hotel star rating. These customers pay in advance to get a confirmed booking at their price in less than three hours. The TRAVELSPICE solution will help save its customers a guaranteed 32 percent on top of the lowest available market prices. Microsoft Azure lets TRAVELSPICE analyse site traffic, conversions and keep the eCommerce platform secure and compliant. TRAVELSPICE benefits by paying only for the capacity it uses while enabling it to handle predictable and unpredictable demand. With the help of Microsoft Azure, including its boat services, TRAVELSPICE is able to solely focus on enhancing customer experience.
“Moving to Azure was a very conscious decision we made, which paid off. With features such as auto scaling, auto backups, A/B Testing for comparing different versions of web app to see which one performs better and deeply integrated Analytics, Azure saved us countless human hours and reduced error, providing more room to solve our customer problems. With increased use of machine learning and BOT services of Microsoft, we will continue to be ahead of our fast growing consumer demand,” said Vijaymohan Avullapati, CTO, TRAVELSPICE. “It is extremely exciting to see the innovations TRAVELSPICE is bringing to the market. We are excited to provide the Digital transformation platform for TRAVELSPICE to innovate and build on our Hyper Secure and Hyper Scalable cloud,” added Rajiv Sodhi, Commercial Partner Leader, Microsoft India.
