(Travel Division) has won a contract to supply broadband services to 41-branch agency the Bowen Travel Group.
Bowen Travel Group is to benefit from The Broadband Travel Network, a comprehensive range of managed broadband services developed specifically for the UK travel industry. The group, which operates leisure and business agencies and private coach tours, predicts that implementation of Broadband Professional will lead to IT savings of over 30 per cent.
Broadband Professional’s unrivalled managed broadband service for operators, agents and other travel companies provides one of the highest levels of guaranteed bandwidth in the industry.
With a user contention ratio of 4:1, Broadband Professional enables data transfer up to five times faster than standard ADSL service1, offering the group’s agents a quicker connection to Traveleye - NTL Business (Travel Division)‘s leading integrated selling system - and improved communications between its head office and branches.
John Bloor, Bowen Travel Group IT Manager said: “More tour operators are moving to data-rich, web-based booking systems to replace outdated viewdata systems, and we decided The Broadband Travel Network best suited our requirements for the broadband service we need to remain ahead in today’s highly competitive marketplace.
“We’re now in position to bring video streaming and 3D tours into our sales experience. Consumers are more demanding than ever, and we’re committed to constant innovation in order to meet their expectations.
