Travelport has released version 6.0 of its Smartpoint solution for corporate and leisure travel agencies.

The latest release, Travelport Smartpoint 6.0, provides travel consultants with further capabilities to advise their customers about the entire range of products, optional services and offers available from the airlines that Travelport distributes, with fully interactive, graphical screen displays and real time booking.

Travelport Smartpoint 6.0 is available now either as a simple download to our desktop app or an automated upgrade for those using the web browser version.

Using this latest iteration of Smartpoint, travel agents can now access an airlines branded fares and ancillaries at the availability, fare quote and fare shop stages of the booking process, providing a new level of product insight and information at more of the key stages in the customer buying experience.

In turn, travelers can be better informed of the products available to them, the options that might exist, the cost of the next product up and the ancillary products available to buy, to tailor their journey to their specific requirements.

Further enhancements also include reducing the number of clicks required to access important information and the ability for agents to book and pay for the wide portfolio of low cost carriers Travelport has integrated into its platform, using debit cards (in addition to credit cards) within the same booking workflow.

Jason Clarke, Travelports SVP and Managing Director for Agency Commerce, said, We are constantly looking at ways to improve our already ground-breaking and innovative point-of-sale solution Travelport Smartpoint. We are also listening to our travel agency customers to find out exactly what they want from our products and systems. This latest version allows travel agents to sell more effectively and efficiently, increase revenues and grow their businesses. We have received extremely positive feedback from the agents who have been testing this for us and we are excited to be rolling it out so all of our customers can benefit.

Travelport, Smartpoint
