Orlando, Florida – February 26, 2014 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – Resort Travel & Xchange (RTX) is on a roll. Transactions at the International timeshare exchange company hit a record high in January, 2015, with 463 timeshare exchanges by members, an impressive 171 percent increase over the same period last year. The new record represents a 132 percent gain over the company’s previous best month for exchanges, October 2014.
The numbers for last-minute getaways reflect even more growth, up 198 percent last month over January 2014 and 124 percent over the company’s previous record for getaways booked, set in February 2014.
Hunter attributes RTX’s growth in part to enhanced staff training and member and partner education. During the past year, the company increased training and added customer service staff. At the same time, a low supervisor-to-representative ratio remained integral to the company’s quality assurance program.
“While we’re thrilled about RTX’s amazing transactional growth, we are equally proud that our average time to fulfill requests reached just 4.4 days, significantly below the industry average,” said Justin Hunter, RTX director of operations. “Our staff has worked hard to achieve this remarkable growth, while at the same time maintaining an unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service.”
Further driving growth, RTX’s education initiatives have kept members informed on promotions and benefits via weekly and bi-weekly emails. The quarterly RTX Traveler magazine also serves to improve members’ understanding of the role exchange plays in maximizing the value of vacation ownership. As another vehicle for growth, RTX increased its presence at key industry meetings and conferences last year. Its exhibits and sponsorships have proven effective in building relations with resort and HOA partners, allowing the company to continually add to its products and services.
RTX provides members – 80,000 strong and growing – with a risk-free exchange program. The innovative company works with a vast network of travel partners around the globe to provide members with the best possible exchange options.
