Sabre Corporation, a technology provider to the global travel industry, announced last week that it is developing a new open mobile platform which will offer integrated itinerary management and mid-trip booking capabilities for business travellers. The mobile platform will power itinerary management, policy compliant bookings and payment and expense management.
"Controlling and managing travel expenses is important for any corporation, but that's not enough," said Clinton Anderson, senior vice president of strategy and traveller experience for Sabre. "Travel is a significant corporate investment. Companies need to maximise the value of that investment by using technology that will make business travel easier for the travellers and smarter for the corporation."
Sabre is integrating several best-in-class products into one intuitive mobile platform including the booking capabilities of GetThere, the award-winning itinerary management of TripCase, Sabre's innovative Virtual Payments solution, and industry leading expense management services.
With the aim of simplifying the travel management process while enhancing business traveller satisfaction and improving corporate travel programme compliance, the intuitive mobile platform will reduce costs for corporations by providing the ability to integrate with any expense provider. Corporations and travellers benefit by being able to seamlessly import their booking, payment, and expense data into their preferred expense management solution.
