Travelport GDS opens new revenue streams for agents in Asia Pacific
Published: 10 Mar 2008：Travelport GDS has enhanced its online itinerary tool ViewTrip and announced the launch of a new customisable version (white label) which will enable agents in the Asia Pacific region to earn new revenue streams.
The enhanced, generic version of Travelport ViewTrip replaces the former Galileo ViewTrip and Worldspan My Trip and More products, combining the best of both solutions. It allows travellers to view, print and email itineraries, expense receipts and electronic receipts via a website in 23 languages, including Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai, Bahasa Malay and Japanese. Users of the former Galileo ViewTrip product will now have access to rich new content such as driving directions, comprehensive maps, flight status and hotel property images.
"This is the first time we have used the Travelport name on one of our global products and is tangible evidence of the benefits our recent integration (the merger of Galileo and Worldspan to form Travelport GDS), will bring to our customers," said Abigail Lee, Product Marketing Manager for Travelport, Asia Pacific.
In addition, Galileo-connected agents in the Asia Pacific region now have access to a white label version of Travelport ViewTrip, which can be customised with the agency´s brand and feature agency promotions and advertising messages. By empowering travellers to access their own travel details, agents save valuable time spent responding to itinerary requests while taking advantage of new revenue and promotional opportunities.
The first agent to implement the new product in Asia is Travelex, Hong Kong.
