Amadeus to Launch New Mobile solutions to Empower Business Travellers

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 2 July 2009

Amadeus is preparing to launch a suite of mobile solutions for business travellers.

 The suite, which will be launched in the coming months, includes the possibility of having efficient approval workflow while on the road and itinerary-based location information upon demand, as well as an employee security tracker.

 The new solutions will function on all the major mobile operating systems such as Windows Mobile, Symbian and BlackBerry.

By using Amadeus Mobile Partner, which is synchronised with Amadeus e-Travel Management, travellers can store complete itineraries on their mobile device at the push of a button. They can access everything from flight schedules and hotel addresses, to car rental and check-in information, even when they do not have network connectivity. It also means that these details can be checked while abroad without incurring any roaming fees.

Amadeus Mobile Partner has an additional function for travel approvers within a company, which allows them to confirm or reject trips while on-the-go via their mobile, thus avoiding bottlenecks when they are away from their desk. Approvers see the full list of trips waiting to be approved, and can quickly endorse or reject them directly from their mobile.

Albert Pozo, Vice President, Business & Corporate Travel, Amadeus, said, ďAmadeus continues to invest in innovation and to believe in R&D particularly during a period of financial crisis when companies are looking to improve their business. We plan to bring our customers next generation travel technology that will help the traveller be more productive and efficient while on the road. After initiating joint research with ACTE last year which evaluated the mobile needs of corporations, Amadeus is now delivering a portfolio of mobile services for the business traveller, helping corporations better support their employees who are on the move.Ē

The Amadeus SMS Traveller Contact solution is a traveller tracking and security tool to facilitate ad hoc communication with travelling employees before, during and after they travel.

 It allows the travel manager to reach out to travellers who may be at risk during an emergency; send SMS notifications before, during and after their trip; and quickly send information via email to all those employees with planned trips for a given destination.

Amadeus has also teamed up with mobile technology company ConTgo to offer an additional mobile solution to corporations.

 Mobile Travel Assistantís (MTA) main feature, known as the Follow-Me Itinerary, delivers relevant information directly to the travellerís mobile phone using SMS messages only when they need it.

 The information sent is based on the actual itinerary for the traveller, and the content can be customised and controlled by the corporation based on location-specific rules.

 Secondly, the Travel Alert functionality on the MTA helps locate travellers by SMS and keeps track of their responses so that the travel manager can keep a clear view of those who may be in need of assistance during a travel security incident.
