The new tool contains inventory from more than 135,000 suppliers and has the capability to recognize a traveler's identity, itinerary details and location. In addition, booked itineraries are loaded into a traveler's Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes Calendar and invitations are automatically sent to out for activities such as web or audio conferences.
