Travelport has announced the launch of Travelport Mobile Agent through its Developer Network. The mobile app, which enables Travelport-connected agencies to gain full access to the Galileo platform directly on their mobile device, is currently available via Apple’s App Store.
Developed by Travel Technology & Solutions, the product is one of the first products to be made available globally as a result of the Travelport Developer Network that was launched last November. The product was successfully piloted in Portugal, Spain and Brazil, when it was downloaded by more than 3,000 agents.
Jason Nash, Vice President Product Innovation at Travelport, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring this product to the industry through our Developer Network. By enabling talented third parties to build products using Travelport technology we are delivering on our strategy to launch new, innovative solutions for our customers worldwide.”
“Being able to manage our travel bookings on the move is hugely advantageous in today’s mobile world,” said Marcio Ferreira, Chief Executive at Aviateam, one of the early adopters of Travelport Mobile Agent. “We are delighted to see Travelport offering innovative mobile solutions that enable us to enhance the service we offer to our customers and improve our processes.”
This launch of Travelport Mobile Agent comes shortly after the successful global launch of Travelport ViewTrip Mobile, Travelport’s mobile traveller itinerary application.
