Sabre account manager Carole Smith.
The agency is a member of SYNERGI
, a joint venture enterprise of travel management companies in more than 50 major business centres. The SYNERGI group said in March that it had selected the Sabre system as its preferred GDS for multi-national accounts.
Neenan Travel SYNERGI Ireland has 35 staff, including one implant and several home-workers. It will be using Sabre Travel Network’s Windows-based booking platform and will lease some hardware, including ticket printers. The agency will also use Sabre Travel Network’s Meridia.Res Internet booking engine to develop its online sales strategy. Conversion from Galileo will be completed by September.
Travel Network’s preferred supplier agreement with the SYNERGI group means that members are able to manage multi-national accounts on a single GDS, resulting in improved efficiencies and data management. The company’s technology also allows SYNERGI members to integrate a number of important travel documents.
