Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 31 July 2009

Abacus has launched an enhanced version of its popular booking solution Abacus Whizz, with new features now available to over 15,000 travel agencies across Asia.

The new version reflects the growing importance of alternative, non-air, revenue sources for travel agents, said the Abacus’ Vice-President, Marketing Mr Brett Henry.

“The upgrade makes it much easier for travel agents to access the comprehensive hotel contents on Abacus Whiz via a more user-friendly Graphic User Interface (GUI) and they are now able to make direct download, email and view the most updated travel insurance products without the need to go to a separate application,” Mr Henry said.

Other new functionality includes enhanced Electronic Ticket Passenger Itinerary Receipt (ETPIR) capabilities and direct links to eServices, an online portal for travel agents containing useful content, 24/7 business services and Asia specific eCourses to meet agents’ different needs.

The improved Abacus Whiz also integrates a wider range of travel agency processes and improves overall productivity for the travel agents, for example, by allowing both the retailer and wholesaler to access the ETPIR and send multiple copies to the customer if necessary.

With electronic tickets now able to display the stopover city and elapsed time, the solution allows agents to preview, edit and create itineraries over a wide range of layout templates so as to create a differentiated experience for their customers.

“In the current environment anything we can do to help travel consultants boost productivity makes a difference such as the improved e-ticket generation, great short-cut keys and ultra-efficient report generation built into Abacus Whiz. Agents will also appreciate the finger-tip access to additional content such as hotels, insurance and car rentals that can help them grow their revenue,” Mr Henry added.
