Nivalink today is a very specialised travel company that has loyal customers throughout India (100+ cities) and across the globe (60+ Countries).
Nivalink as an idea was discovered completely by chance and then started to build upon it once we understood its potential. 200,000 kms on road and 20 years and we are still at it as a work in progress !
They started as a specialist in local getaways and grew into an end to end travel solutions providers. Over the years They have developed specialisation areas of Pilgrimages, Wildlife, Bird watching, Wellness Travel, Offbeat / Experiential travel that focussed on sophisticated traveller segments.
They discovered areas of knowledge management and put to good use so that information gathered while on travel can be distributed. The knowledge management efforts lead us to automations that helped us build critical productivity tools that helped us in speeding up responses for complex travel itineraries.
They ended up building up an integrated Suite with CRM, Knowledgement, Website Content Management, Payments and Accounts all combining to offer the productivity and efficiency to manage a complex business profitably.
