Travelport Ireland to Expand Sales Team

Appointing an additional sales team member and new product roll-outs are on the pre-Christmas agenda for Travelport Ireland, Country Manager Sinead Reilly has told Irish Travel Trade News in an interview for the September issue. Sinead Reilly, Travelport

“Staff numbers have increased by eight in the past year and another will be appointed to the sales team before Christmas,” she said. “The role is now being finalised before we advertise the position.”

Asked about forthcoming product developments, Sinead said: “Universal Desktop is in beta test with FCm – including a full-week training programme last week. We are also running Smartpoint training sessions every week for the next couple of months.

“Universal API, which will be the focus of a UK conference at the end of October, is in direct development with some of our largest Irish customers – and also with third-party solutions providers, so it will be available to almost all agents in the coming months.

“Over 4,000 users in 306 offices across Ireland use Travelport Total to access tour operator content, which we will be increasing in coming months.”
