Travelport reports it has signed agreements with six travel agencies in the Asia-Pacific region to participate in the regional testing and development of its Travelport Universal Desktop.  The new contracts follow successful agency trials and positive feedback from global launch partner, Flight Centre Ltd and UK beta test customer Global Travel Management.

The new Travelport Universal Desktop test partners in the Asia-Pacific region are: MP Travel and Orba Travel Brokers in Australia, Quotient Travel and Serangoon Air Travel Pte Ltd in Singapore as well as SkyJet and Shalom in Hong Kong. All customers will commence beta testing shortly.

Travelport Universal Desktop provides travel agents with an intuitive interface and access to multi-source content and pricing.  It is designed to improve efficiencies and boost productivity, through its introduction of clever travel management tools and streamlined workflow processes.

“Travelport Universal Desktop delivers our travel partners with a revolutionary new way to search and book travel. It reflects our ongoing investment in innovative technology and builds on our position as Asia-Pacific’s leading GDS,” said Simon Nowroz, president and managing director, Asia-Pacific, Travelport. “We are committed to ensuring Travelport meets customer needs in today’s marketplace, but also identifies the opportunities of tomorrow.”

The desktop tool is currently being launched across the Flight Centre global network following a successful pilot program, Travelport says. UK travel management company Global Travel Management has also commenced accessing a live version following its own successful beta trial.
