With the implementation of a newly designed user interface, course sponsors are given the tools to monitor the successes and ROI of their courses. An advanced online sponsor dashboard features student trends month-to-month, downloadable lists of certified travel agents, and rewards program bookings by room nights or total revenue. Supplier courses engage students year-round with an array of Recommend promotion to its dedicated travel agent base (the largest circulation in the industry) and constantly drives travel agents to their courses.
