Travelport has launched its mobile solution, Travelport Mobile Agent, in several Asian markets.
Travel agents in Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan using the Galileo GDS platform are now able to download Travelport Mobile Agent. The new solution allows users to access and modify bookings via their iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Android devices. The application will also be launched for Asian Worldspan GDS users on 15 July.
“Travelport Mobile Agent is an incredibly useful tool for travel agencies and their travel agents that want to be competitive in an industry that never sleeps, where immediate response and customer service are a must for business success,” said Patrick Andres, Travelport’s vice president and regional managing director for Asia Pacific.
“We have had so much success with this solution in other regions and I have no doubt that this application will be just as successful in Asia, where mobile technology adoption is one of the highest in the world,” he added.
The mobile solution has already been deployed in the Americas, Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Pacific region, and has been downloaded more than 19,000 times since July 2012.
