Sabre targets US corporates

Sabre Travel
Network is launching Sabre
Corporate Efficiency Formula for the U.S. marketplace. This
comprehensive set of technology and services provides the ability for
travel management companies to fully automate self-service reservations
and streamline processing of agent-assisted transactions. The Corporate
Efficiency Formula enables agencies to more effectively compete and win
in the growing online-led managed business travel space.

  Recent studies indicate that the North American managed travel
segment is projected to grow at a rate of approximately 4 percent
annually through 2009. Within the managed travel segment, projections
call for a continued shift to online reservations, with an estimated
annual growth rate of 20 percent per year.

  Sabre is deploying the Corporate Efficiency Formula specifically to
help travel management companies further adapt their business practices
to succeed in this evolving segment.

  “The Corporate Efficiency Formula is all about leveling the playing
field - enabling our agency customers to retain and win more than their
share of price sensitive, technology savvy customers, and to do so
profitably by being as efficient as possible,” said Chris Kroeger,
senior vice president Sabre Travel Network, North America.
