Travelport, a leading provider of critical transaction processing solutions and data to the global travel industry, has announced the launch of a new online Corporate Booking Tool (CBT) for companies and business travel agents in Poland. The product, TripGate™, has been developed by TravelTech, a leading Polish travel technology company, and brings a number of new capabilities to the Polish travel industry for the first time.
TripGate has been specifically developed to offer a simple, fast and reliable solution for SMEs who in the past may not have had the opportunity to benefit from a CBT. The online CBT, available in Polish, is backed by local and global content and benefits from the support of Travelport’s global business travel expertise.
“We have recognised a definite need for a corporate booking tool that can be used by companies of all sizes, particularly those characterised as SMEs,” said Marcin Pilarski, Managing Director Eastern Europe, Travelport. “We are confident that companies across the country will see this product as a great opportunity to gain more control over their travel booking, optimise their travel budgets and enhance their travellers’ user experience”.
As part of TripGate’s introduction in Poland, Travelport and TravelTech worked with WecoTravel, a leading corporate travel agency, to first evaluate the concept of this new CBT and to review the various features, functionality and system performance.
“We were delighted to cooperate with Travelport and TravelTech to ensure TripGate met all of the requirements for business travel in Poland,” added Mr J.J. Singh, President and CEO of WecoTravel. “We have tested the tool and found it brings a new level of simplicity and efficiency to the world of online CBTs.”
Commenting on the new partnership with Travelport, TravelTech’s President Marcin Lis said “By combining our expertise in online booking tools with Travelport’s global content, we are sure that TripGate will make a very positive impact for Poland.”
