In September 2016, we launched our second product: MAYA – a universal tool for self-arranged LEISURED business travel. Inspired by the navigational comfort characteristic of the best tourist sites, its interface has been specifically designed to maximise user comfort at each stage of business travel.
MAYA offers a new 100 % mobile solution for business travel arrangements, which covers both simple booking procedures and more complex multi-stage travel experience involving a number of participants from different locations in the world. The offer includes travelling by car, plane or train to hotel destinations from the iAlbatros database of 300000 accommodation options.
MAYA can be accessed from any PC, tablet or smartphone, contributing to improved user support.
It should be noted that MAYA seeks to ensure comfort for business travellers and, in particular, for company employees responsible for financing such a project. This is achieved by means of a single consolidated invoice covering the full cost of a business trip for a number of employees, and by offering a variety of expenditure supervision services.
