Cossist envisions to make 360 degree contributions to Tourism industry. Our primary purpose is to help tourists to have a seamless experience at a destination. We deliver this through our state-of-the-art mobile platform. In addition we intend to be a responsible global entity and we embraced a model called "IMPRESS" to achieve it. It should not be some buzzwords that are etched on a wall, rather these attributes should be actionable items that make a direct impact on Tourists and in turn the Tourism industry.
The definitions under IMPRESS could be fulfilled by various means and one may find there may be more. But below we are showing you how we, at Cossist, interpret this model and execute them in a consistent fashion. Eventually it should be a win-win situation and the benefits must go to both Tourists and Tourist Service Providers alike. If you are a service provider to Tourists, you may have your own way of contributions that uphold Sustainability and Responsibility. But we can join hands for a common cause and work together, because together we can make a better world of Tourism.
Here are our definitions and plans to achieve them.
Inclusive tourism is about making a level playing field for all types of travelers, regardless of any challenges such as physical, language, gender etc. Reducing uncertainty as to what to expect at a destination is of prime importance. It is about creating an environment where all types of people feel welcomed and hence instill a sense of confidence. It benefits the ageing population, wheelchair population, children, moms and dads carrying infants in strollers, people with hearing and vision impairment, people who speak English as second language and just about anyone.
No one should be left behind. Cossist mobile platform was built to make this level playing field for all types of Tourists. We practice this by
The ultimate aim of Cossist platform is to ensure a seamless concierge support when a tourist lands in a new destination. We invest in technology and partner with Tourism Service Providers to make it a reality.

But we, at Cossist, insist no one should find their visit at a destination stressful and distressed.

Uncertainty at a Destination is a long-standing problem for Tourists. Often those who travel with family and infants find it challenging and anxious about the new place. Well, not anymore.

Sustainable Tourism stands for exploring a destination by respecting and enjoying local culture, environment, and people. The other side of the coin is mass-tourism, where travelers flock to popular places such as a cruise or a beach party.
It is entirely up to the traveler what choice they make. But at Cossist, we promote Sustainable tourism by
Covid-19 may have changed certain behaviors of Tourists forever. A mandate on Social Distancing need not be looked upon as a constraint, rather it should be an incentive for people to travel safely. Tourists prefer to travel by making touchless transactions or by not standing in line. These could be some of the permanent preferred travel behaviors going forward.
Our mobile platform is uniquely positioned to support this behavior and we do this by
In a nutshell every problem gives opportunity to improve the status-quo. Cossist is in the forefront to make productive and meaningful contributions to the world of Tourism.
