Travelocity Business enhances TBiz Chat

Travelocity Business announced that TBiz Chat has gone mobile, allowing business travelers to chat one on one with TBiz agents prior to and during their business trip through the TripCase mobile app. Launched on both Concur and GetThere online booking tools in May 2012, TBiz Chat has proven to be a valuable tool for business travelers with more than 97 percent of respondents saying they will use the product in the future, according to a recent customer satisfaction survey.

“Knowing what our customers need and prefer is essential to our business,” said Yannis Karmis , president of Travelocity Business. “It ensures we are providing the best possible service every day to every customer. TBiz Chat offers an innovative way to easily and effectively communicate travel needs and requests so our customers can focus on their work at hand. While using Chat you can easily change travel plans while multi-tasking in a meeting or at home.”

Recognizing that mobile devices play a more integral role in business travel than ever before, Travelocity Business was the first travel management company to provide one-on-one chat capabilities within the TripCase mobile app. TBiz Chat leverages the messaging capabilities of TripCase Connect, a web platform for travel agencies, to send messages to travelers via a mobile device. Business travelers who are in need of assistance can connect on their mobile devices with certified Travelocity Business agents who are dedicated and specifically trained for TBiz Chat.

Travelocity Business continues to create and enhance customer products to meet the needs of the ever-evolving business traveler. Leveraging its industry-leading knowledge and regular customer survey results, Travelocity Business is able to ensure the customer experience from the booking process to interaction with a TBiz agent is exceptional, ultimately allowing, for companies to drive cost savings within their travel programs.
