High Tech: Agent Books Cruise On iPad

Cindy Jabbour, of Cindave Inc., an independent affiliate of America’s Vacation Center (AVC)/Avoya Travel, may be among the first to book a cruise using Apple’s new iPad. “Just the other day I tried the iPad and was able to actually book a stateroom in Agent Power using it,” said Jabbour. Agent Power is AVC’s proprietary technology and compatible with the iPad.

AVC reports its agents can access and use the integrated Agent Power system on the iPad with a quick touch of the screen. With the upcoming release of iPad 3G, AVC agents will be able to conveniently access Agent Power on this new device from anywhere, anytime – enabling them to be more available to customers.

“With the mobile capabilities of the new 3G model and the compatibility of Agent Power, we can even take it with us to Sandals in Jamaica next week and make bookings from the resort beaches,” Jabbour said.

“It is our goal to continuously evolve with the changes in global technology which is why it was a priority to ensure our Agent Power software was compatible with the new iPad and iPad 3G,” said Brad Anderson, co-president of AVC. “Today’s customers are looking to book travel when it’s most convenient to them. The combination of our Agent Power technology and the iPad 3G will make it easier for our network to be available for customers, sell travel, and manage their independent agencies whenever and wherever they choose.”
