PTI, Jul 14, 2020, 4:42 PM IST

New Delhi: Online travel company Yatra.com on Tuesday said it has entered into a partnership with upGrad Enterprise, the business-to-business arm of online higher education firm upGrad, to make its foray into the educational technology (ed-tech) segment.

As the company aims to diversify its portfolio beyond travel, this partnership shall enable its corporate clients to deliver advance learning and skill development for their employees, Yatra.com said in a statement.

Yatra.com, however, did not disclose any financial details of the partnership.

“In a tough economic climate, it is important to develop and re-skill the workforce to overcome the challenges being presented. We are excited to join forces with upGrad to provide a platform to our clients who are looking to develop employees’ potential specific to their business or sector,” Yatra.com co-founder and CEO Dhruv Shringi said.

This partnership further paves way for Yatra.com to become an end-to-end business solution provider to its clients, he added.

On the development, upGrad co-founder and Managing Director Mayank Kumar said, “The unprecedented rate of technology advancement is disrupting companies and jobs everywhere. Across verticals, enterprises face barriers to this adoption due to skill-gap in their talent pool. Such barriers can be crippling, hampering business growth.”

The company’s partnership with Yatra will be focused towards bridging this workforce skill-gap, he added.

The alliance will empower Yatra’s corporates and SME clientele with learning expertise combined with cutting-edge curriculum, collaboration with leading global faculty and industry experts, and an immersive online platform, thereby making them future-ready, the statement said.
