has announced that its WebPoint integrated web fare search tool has been selected by Global Travel of
Boise, Idaho. Global Travel
will utilize WebPoint at its 16 locations throughout
Idaho, California and Washington to increase the number of fare options
available to their corporate and leisure travelers.
Customers benefit by having a consolidated source of information from a wide range of web based vendors.
“AgentWare`s WebPoint provides a comprehensive view of web fares directly
from within Galileo Focalpoint,” states Cynthia Michalski, Executive Vice
President and General Manager of Global Travel. “Additionally, if a
customer decides to take advantage of a web fare, we can book the fare and
bring the information back into Focalpoint for future reference and
pre-trip service. No other solution makes it so easy to add this service offering
for our customers.”
“Global Travel is the first agency in Idaho to institute web fare search
technologies, which gives it a distinct advantage over non-equipped
competitors,” states Les Ottolenghi
, CEO and Co-Founder of AgentWare.
“We`re proud that such a strong organization has chosen WebPoint because
it makes clear our value proposition to the agency community.”
WebPoint is the only web fare solution that integrates search, fare audit and booking information directly back into the Galileo Focalpoint. Fare information from 33 separate web sites in the US, Canadian and European
markets give agents a comprehensive view of the fare “spot-market.”
WebPoint also includes access to net fare sources that offer inventory
that can be marked up at a profit. Finally, users can access agent-only sites
that are increasingly providing commissions and special inventory via the
WebPoint product. WebPoint has enjoyed a terrific adoption rate among
Galileo Focalpoint users over the past 3 weeks since launch.
