Tzell Travel Group Partners with Sabre Travel Network to Deliver Unique Mobile Capabilities to Business Travelers

Third largest travel management company in the United States to offer mobile messaging and itinerary services using TripCase

Southlake, Texas – Aug. 16, 2010 – Sabre Travel Network and Tzell Travel Group today announced a partnership to offer the TripCase mobile messaging application to its business travelers.

TripCase is an innovative mobile application providing travel itinerary services and the ability for agencies to send free updates, notifications and alerts to travelers throughout their entire trip, using TripCase’s unique messaging platform not available anywhere else on the market.

Using Tripcase, Tzell will be able to enhance the service they provide customers by delivering travelers their complete itinerary on the mobile device, enabling them to easily view and share their information with colleagues, friends and family. Tzell will also leverage TripCase’s messaging platform to proactively interact with travelers while on the road, sending them reminders during their journey, and notifying them of any trip changes, updates and cancellations. As the TripCase solution is fully integrated with Tzell’s customer travel information, any itinerary changes will be automatically synchronized for the traveler too.   

“We’ve looked at a lot of mobile solutions on the market and TripCase is by far one of the best, offering superior functionality, integration and speed,” said Scott Booth, Vice President for Tzell. “Their unique messaging platform was also a big part of our decision to choose TripCase, enabling our agents to send free alerts to travelers post-booking and in-transit via the TripCase messaging platform. We see enormous value in this solution and welcome the enhanced interaction TripCase will give us with our customers, particularly those in the financial and consulting industries.”

TripCase’s technology enhances the travel experience by keeping travelers informed, empowered and connected with:
·        One-click access to the most important trip details and notes to help minimize stressful travel experiences
·        Automatic import of itinerary details or manually add flights, hotels and rental car information
·        Free up-to-the-minute notifications about flight delays, cancellations and gate changes; alternate flight availability; baggage claim information; and hotel and car rental status alerts
·        Share itineraries with colleagues, business contacts, family and friends, so they receive the most up-to-date travel information as the traveler does
·        Secure connections to ensure the protection of traveler and corporate data

Mobile in travel has grown exponentially in recent years and this has provided travel agencies with a fresh opportunity to demonstrate their value, and differentiate their brand and service,” said Jay Jones, senior vice president of Sabre Travel Network, Americas. “TripCase is part of Sabre Red’s innovative suite of mobile capabilities, and is designed specifically to help agencies enhance the service they provide customers and become an indispensable partner.  We are thrilled to be partnering with our long-term partner Tzell to achieve just that,” said Jones.

Today’s announcement follows a recent decision by Tzell Travel Group to renew their long-term partnership with Sabre Travel Network.
