Welcome to November’s Agent Focus. It’s been a busy month since the last edition, so there’s a lot to pack into this latest round-up of news from around Travelport. October saw the launch of our Hotelzon app. This clever tool makes it easy for travel agents and business travellers to manage their corporate hotel bookings via their smartphones.
We won a big award this month too – Travelport was named Travel Technology Business of the Year at the Travel Trade Gazette Awards. This recognises the investment and innovation that have gone into our travel commerce platform, and it’s particularly pleasing as the award is judged by our peers.
The Globe Awards are coming up and we’d appreciate your vote for us in the Best Technology Provider category – voting’s from 12th November to 4th December. We’re also launching our new commercial – you can see it here.
If you’re buying branded fares and ancillaries, the latest version of Travelport Smartpoint makes it even simpler to find the best deals fast. It’s just one of the ways Smartpoint is changing the way you search and book. Make sure you have the latest version – download it here.
Plus there are our regular features about training opportunities on Travelport products, webinars and the latest from Travelport Marketplace, where you can access innovative products created in tandem with our community of developers.
Windows XP OS user? If you are, you’ll need to upgrade your system in order to keep using Smartpoint or Galileo desktop from 30th June 2016.
