The Global network of passengers (GPN) is an organization that offers car rental in 31 countries around the world through operators of buses affiliates recognized internationally for its quality. GPN organizes a bi-annual General Meeting in different countries. In this case the host was its member in Malta, Zarb Coaches who proudly received more than 60 participants at the prestigious Hotel Excelsior in Valletta.
On this occasion, GPN welcomed two new countries, Sweden and Romania, represented respectively by the companies Björks Buss in Sweden and Alis Grup in Romania. With these two new members, the Organization now covers 31 countries, now beginning a new phase of expansion to other continents such as Asia and Latin America.
On the other hand, GPN also welcomed many new partners, among the most important, Scania, Indcar and Continental Tyres. The directors of foreign sales of our new partners had the opportunity to submit their companies and their services and were highly surprised by the value of discussions at our meetings and the possibilities that were displayed to let them know all our members during these two days.
GPN is in full growth and expansion and is exponentially increasing each month the number of requests for coach and bus rental all over the world. For this reason, it was approved the implementation of a CRM platform, Microsoft Dynamics, that will allow to improve the track of our potential customers, contacts and detect new business opportunities. The introduction of this system will be a milestone within the Organization GPN, which will facilitate the work of control and monitoring of the GPN relationships with its customers.
Within the Committee’s innovation, it was presented to all participants, in avant-premiere, a new web platform in the world of the bus and coach industry, that will be very soon released in the market, with a completely innovative technological level and that will give much to talk about in the coming months.
As usual, the GPN Members obviously also had the possibility to visit the headquarters of its host, Zarb Coaches in Malta and enjoy a whole range of events on the island by its director, Manuel Zarb.
After this first successful General meeting of 2016, begins the preparation of its next meeting to be held in Dublin in November 2016.
