Travel-on Travel Partnership with Agentware

has been selected
by Travel-On Travel services, to provide Web fare search technology for its
35 travel counselors.  Travel-On joins a growing clientele of corporate and
leisure travel retailers in the US, Canada and the UK that have chosen to
integrate AgentWare`s web fare solutions into their service offering. 

Offering web fares to clients is increasingly important to travel agencies,
as an expanding number of fares are distributed exclusively via the
Internet.  These fares have historically been difficult for travel retailers
to access and sell.  The rise of low-fare airlines that only sell fares via
the Internet has also pushed many travel retailers to adopt web fare
solutions.  Because of AgentWare, these fares have become easy to find, book
and service, giving customers access to low fares and high service levels.

“We looked at all of the systems on the market,” states Karen Dunlap, VP of
Operations for Travel-On, “and after looking at all of them, we saw that
AgentWare WebPoint was the best solution for our customers.  No other system
combines a comprehensive search function with the high level of integration
found with WebPoint.”

“We`re proud to sign Travel-On Travel Management, because they have a
history of providing their customers with the highest level of service,”
states Les Ottolenghi
, CEO and Co-Founder of AgentWare.  “Its particularly
gratifying for us to see clients that have done their homework and choose
AgentWare - we encourage everyone to compare us on price, speed, breadth of
search and integration in the travel agent workflow.”

WebPoint is a web fare solution that integrates search, fare audit
and booking information directly back into the Galileo Focalpoint®. 
information from 33 separate web sites in the US, Canadian and European
markets gives 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.
