Sabre Travel Network is launching ‘Sabre Virtually There’ mobile services, which brings features found on ‘Virtually There’, a web site providing real-time access to trip itineraries, to a leisure or business traveller’s mobile phone or other web-enabled mobile device.
These features include:
Flight notification alerts for current itineraries, alleviating the need to rely on a computer during travel
Local restaurant, city guide and destination information for 19 European countries
Access to a currency converter tool
“With the ‘Virtually There’ tools accessible via mobile devices, travel agents are able to make their customers’ trips as stress-free as possible,” said Martin Cowley, Senior Vice President of Sabre Travel Network EMEA.
“These latest technology enhancements make it even easier for agents to keep travellers up to date and in touch with the latest travel information - helping to build customer loyalty.”
Destination information is available for 19 European countries including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Ireland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Turkey and United Kingdom.
In addition to these features, ‘Virtually There’ on mobile devices will retain the co-branded information established by individual agencies, with their personalised logo and contact information appearing on the mobile screen. With ‘Virtually There’ now accessible via mobile devices at www.virtuallythere.com, agents can respond to their clients needs in an even timelier manner, adding even greater value to the quality services they already provide for travellers, resulting in improved customer satisfaction and increased differentiation from competitors.
“We’re committed to being the market leader in mobile service offerings for leisure and business travel agents and travellers alike,” said Cowley. “This is only the tip of the iceberg for Sabre’s mobile offerings in the coming months.”
These new mobile-service features are the latest enhancements to Sabre’s end-to-end solutions for leisure and corporate agents.
