AdventureLink, an Internet startup that is expected to launch in early 2008, is planning to provide adventure travel options through its online GDS. Additionally, the founders say they will use advanced technologies, such as Voice over Internet Protocol, to stay connected with agents. "A key to this system is the ability to leverage Voice over Internet Protocol [VoIP] and put one of our telephones actually on the agent's desk," said Kelly Tompkins, AdventureLink co-founder. "They get a phone from us plus an Internet connection, so that they can take booking leads through our Web site."
