The DCX Team

Our story: 

After spending many years in the travel industry and working for both regional and mega TMCs, we were frustrated with the ability to provide the technology and services travelers wanted. Over and over again, we provided customers with a box that they needed to fit into, opposite of a traveler-centric approach.

The TMC world is built on a fragmented ecosystem & business model that does not offer the ability for customers to customize their travel program with newer technology available today. In addition, it is too expensive for existing TMCs to maneuver to a 100% scalable cloud-based infrastructure.
