New solutions were revealed at the Summits including the launch of four new automation solutions, all new data options and a new service to enable agencies to access their agency info from a virtual desktop.“I’m excited to partner with a company as progressive and dynamic as Sabre, who are constantly evolving their technology offerings to ensure my team have the tools they need to work efficiently, accurately, and profitably. The Tech Summit was a fantastic opportunity to survey the travel technology landscape to see what trends are evolving, and how we can maximise their potential through our partnership with Sabre.” Chris Cheyne from Goldman Travel Corporation.Since the Summits started 100 agents have registered to receive Sabre’s new automation tools and 500 agents in Australia have downloaded the RoomDeal app which gives travel agents an expanded view of 350,000 pre-paid boutique and branded hotels while being able to add their own discretionary fee.“The response to the solutions we are developing and releasing to market has been overwhelming,” said Sabre Pacific Managing Director Jeremy van de Klundert. “It’s great to see the strategies we have been working on for the past 6-18 months starting to come to fruition and the excitement it’s generating from customers and non-Sabre customers alike.“I was very impressed with the huge range of innovations Sabre has been working on, a few of which I am already looking at implementing into my business,” said Karen Kenter from The World @ Braeside Travel.To really highlight that they are at the forefront of technology innovation, Sabre gave away an Apple Watch to one lucky attendee at each Summit.
