Sabre Corporation has opened a new regional headquarters in Montevideo, Uruguay, for Travel Network, its global travel marketplace.
The organisation processes more than US$120 billion of global travel spend annually by connecting travel buyers and suppliers.
The technology support the company provides on a large scale to hundreds of travel agencies and corporate travel buyers in Latin America and the Caribbean requires a pan-regional network of strategically located offices, connected to a headquarters that centralizes resources and optimizes business and consulting processes.
This office is fully dedicated to companies within the region.
“Any company that wants to be competitive, attain high levels of efficiency, and lead as an industry expert needs to manage their business with a global view combined with a strategic regional operation,” said Alfred de Cárdenas, chief commercial officer, Sabre Travel Network.
“Travel bookings made using our technology platforms for the Latin America and Caribbean region increased more than eight percent in the first quarter of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016.
“That represents the highest growth rate since 2013, so we are launching this office at the perfect time with great momentum.”
Sabre strengthened its international footprint over the past ten years, taking the lead over other technology providers to the travel industry.
Today, the company has a global network of offices dedicated to business functions, software development, and global services.
Jay Jones, senior vice president of Travel Network in the Americas region, remarked: “We partnered with Zonamerica to support our regional operations in Uruguay, as the infrastructure and technology they provide are a perfect match for our strategy to establish a commercial and business development hub in Montevideo.”
