Amadeus, a global technology and distribution partner to the travel industry, has announced that a suite of mobile solutions will become available to the business traveller this coming summer.
This 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.
All necessary travel information is now at hand for quick and convenient consultation during any journey, simply 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, 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 and corporate travel, Amadeus, stated: “Amadeus 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.”
