Amadeus introduces online support for travel agencies
Published: 12 Dec 2008: Amadeus has rolled out an online support tool for travel agents to browse support information, resolve problems and log a case to the Amadeus Help Desk.
The online resource, Amadeus e-Support Centre, is currently in use in France, Australia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Hong Kong, and will shortly be launched in North America, Brazil, Scandinavia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Portugal and Latin America.
Amadeus e-Support Centre for Travel Agents is available in six languages and provides knowledge content specifically tailored for use by travel agents in a given market.
The educational material can be searched by keyword, topic and specific system error message. All this is available at no extra cost to customers and is designed to increase productivity and reduce telephone bills. Agents can also log a case online which will be automatically processed by the Amadeus Help Desk. Travel agents can then track the status, update or close the case online.
Future enhancements will include an online "Format Finder" to help agents quickly find the right "entries", to input when using the Amadeus system in cryptic mode and other features designed to send alerts and updates to travel agents.
