Airlines Embrace Sabre’s eMergo to Save Costs, Streamline Operations

Industry’s largest ASP hosting platform provides airlines with operational flexibility

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Sept. 5 , 2007— Airlines around the globe are snapping up Sabre Airline Solutions’ eMergo system, the industry’s largest ASP hosting platform, because it provides them flexibility to deploy a number operational programs to address the needs of a constantly changing travel marketplace.

eMergo is a complete solution that includes application delivery, hardware and third-party software, management of that software, data storage, help desk support and maintenance releases. It allows airlines to access and employ more than 60 of Sabre’s business solutions via the Internet, saving them as much as 60 percent in upfront costs over local installation of the same solutions.

“No one—absolutely no one—has been able to duplicate the success of eMergo,” said Vinay Dube, vice president, marketing solutions for Sabre Airline Solutions. “Airlines have adopted this unique solution, far surpassing the adoption rates of any other industry provider.”

eMergo goes beyond a traditional ASP model because it provides a one-vendor solution for airlines: one point of contact, one business relationship, one complete solution for hosting as well as a single price point for its applications.

Over 100 airlines, including Hawaiian Airlines, use eMergo and experience its benefits daily.

”We’re an airline, not an IT company,” said David Osborne, chief information officer for Hawaiian Airlines. “Having Sabre Airline Solutions assume all these functions and freeing us to do what we do best saves us time, energy and money.”

eMergo is just one example of how Sabre Airline Solutions focuses on providing solutions to the complex business issues that all airlines face daily.
