Standing up to the call of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi and taking the first step to the compliance of the new Company Law, Marg Compusoft launched the MARG ACADEMY & HASI (Human Association for Smiling India) from September 8th - 11th 2014 at Tivoli Gardens, Chattarpur, New Delhi.
 
Former General VK Singh, Minister of State for Development of North-East Region launched the Marg Academy and Shri Amar Singh, member of the Rajya Sabha launched the NGO – HASI. Mr. Manish Sisodia, member of AAP also enlightened the event with his presence and motivated the employees and delegates.
 
Recognizing its responsibility to give back to the society, Marg has joined the league of the big boys in the likes of TCS, Bharti Enterprises, and L&T. After making a name for itself as the provider of one of the best Inventory and Accounting Solutions in the global market, Marg Compusoft is set to utilize its 260 sales and support centres and 1500 plus people task force in joining hands with the government in order to build, educate and socially transform India into a better place to live.
 
The company has created a niche for itself in the pharma industry by revolutionizing the way inventory and accounts are maintained and are now catering to the requirements of Small and Medium Enterprises Pan industries. Maintaining the 3 point orientation of Customers, Technology and Innovation, Mr. Anup Singh, CMD, Marg Compusoft says that “Our USP is that we focus on customized cum specialised product for every sector and industry, therefore making us different from other key players in the market. We have been building software solution for more than 20 years; we are now on embarking on the path of building the nation. We proudly launch our new academy and NGO.”
 
The launch was marked by the presence of leaders of 250 plus IT organizations that have joined hands from across the country to aid in this CSR project. The Marg Academy and HASI (Human Association for Smiling India) will provide a platform to these Small and Medium establishments that are unable to convene their own CSR projects due to size constraints, to come on-board and make contributions of their own.
 
This two fold CSR project of Marg Compusoft will be defined by the Marg Academy in one side, which will contribute towards educating young Indians from the rural parts of the country who have less than adequate means of technological education. Marg’s Accounting and Inventory Solutions is one of the most user friendly and easy to operate software in the market and by educating the rural youth in operating this, Marg Compusoft has taken an epic step towards creating readily employable human resource, thereby, contributing to the unemployment issue of the country on one hand and providing good technologically educated personnel to the corporate sector on the other hand. The other side of the CSR project is defined by HASI (Human Association for Smiling India). Beginning its journey with embarking on the “GO GREEN” dream, HASI will be calling upon its field force of 1500 plus to plant trees across the country. This will be followed by multifarious mini projects of natural calamity aids, education aids, health care aids and many others.

BWI: Expedia Launches New Hotels and Flights Booking App for Tablets that Reimagines Search

Expedia Launches New Hotels and Flights Booking App for Tablets that Reimagines Search
New Expedia Tablet App Introduces Industry-First Combined Hotel and Flight Search, Integrates Personalized Travel Data Across Multiple Different Devices
 
New Delhi, Delhi, India

Expedia.co.in, one of the world's largest full service online travel sites*, today released the all-new Expedia® app for tablets. It is available today for free download from the App Store and Google Play. Expedia’s hotels and flights booking app for tablets presents a fresh way for travelers to shop destinations: the new search tools enable consumers to shop for both hotels and flights on one screen, simply by entering or selecting a destination. This is a stark contrast to the user interface seen across the industry, and Expedia made the leap to create an experience specifically for tablets.
 
Expedia is moving from being just a website to being a travel data platform for the user wherever they are, on whatever device they are on,” said Kathleen Tan, CEO of AAE Travel, which operates the Expedia brand in Asia. AAE Travel is a joint venture company between one of the world’s largest travel companies - Expedia Inc; and the world’s best low-cost carrier – AirAsia.
 


“Travelers expect an easy, convenient way to explore travel destinations and browse flight and hotel details and they expect to be able to do it in a way that feels right for them when they’re on their tablet. Our tablet app gives them this experience, while leveraging the in-depth industry knowledge and personalized insights our powerful Expedia search engines provide”.
 
As per an industry report, 2013 saw an increase of 427% in tablet sales in India with 51% users spending more than 2 hours on tablet. This trend clearly suggests a surge in tablet users and therefore the need to have applications that cut across devices and provides the best travel planning experience. PhocusWright data shows that about 40% of people use tablets when they are browsing for a travel destination. For Expedia, this data paired with internal findings marked the time to provide content geared towards tablet users.
 
“At Expedia, investing in technology has always been our priority and with the exponential rise in Indian tablet market, we wanted to explore this vertical and ensure an all-round presence with this first ever tablet travel app in the Indian market”, said Vikram Malhi, MD, Asia, Expedia

Expedia Unveils a New Direction with Unique Features

To address travelers evolving needs, the new Expedia tablet app is specifically optimized for mobile exploration and browsing and introduces a handful of unique features: 

  • Single Search Box: To eliminate hefty search interfaces, the new tablet app offers a single search box to do the lifting. When a traveler enters a city name, landmark, or airport code, the app will surface hotels and flights relevant to that query – no dates or specific details are required at the start.
  • First-Ever Combined Hotel & Flight Travel Search: For the first time in the industry, combined search has arrived for the travel market. Rather than searching for trips in a rigid, linear progression of flights then hotels, or hotels then flights, Expedia is introducing one combined search that provides both hotel and flight results simultaneously, available all in one glance.
  • Collections: Expedia presents various themed travel destinations to spark interest in future journeys. Collections offer customers the opportunity to explore vacation destinations they may not have otherwise considered. Beautiful locations come to life in a particularly compelling way on tablet devices. Collections offer a rich combination of design, mobility and travel research. Content is catered to various regions and will be updated based on traveler feedback.
  • Integrated Trip Planning, Booking, & Data, Shared Across Devices: Earlier this year, Expedia introduced Scratchpad in certain markets around the globe. Scratchpad is an easy way to keep track of your travel searches. When a traveler is signed into an Expedia app, trips researched on a tablet device will appear on the desktop or mobile Scratchpad. This allows travelers to begin their travel planning from where they left off – on any device. 

“The travel industry has largely thought about each trip as a single transaction and has poured energy into making individual transactions better. That’s no longer enough for travelers who dream, plan, research and buy travel across multiple devices,” notes John Kim, Chief Product Officer at Expedia Worldwide. “We’re beyond the era of just desktop and mobile. Expedia is evolving how we think about that connected customer and how we invest to best serve them before, during and after they travel. Our new tablet app embraces Expedia’s core strengths by bringing together our marquis hotel and flight capabilities to create one beautiful and easy-to-use combined search experience. We encourage people to give it a try and share their feedback.”
 
Download the new Expedia app for tablets today for free from the App Store and Google Play.  For more information on the Expedia app for tablet, including an overview of all product features, please visit www.expedia.co.in/app.
