Business Travel Unlimited (BTU), one of the largest travel providers in Austria and Germany, has signed a deal to access flights and hotels via Traveport
The company operates from 10 locations, has more than 130 staff and its customers include more than 1,800 SMEs and international corporations from a range of industries.
BTU agents will access content through point of sale solution Travelport Smartpoint, providing rich, graphical detail in one workflow.
Chief executive Christiane Tondolo said: “As a business we sat down and conducted an extensive review of our requirements and felt we needed to make a change.
“We wanted to implement new technology that increased the productivity of our agents, and allowed them to offer our customers a broader range of content more efficiently.
“In Travelport we have found what we’re looking for. Their innovative merchandising technology combined with their local sales support will help us grow our business.”
Travelport Austria managing director Rudolf Mertl said: “We are proud to have signed this agreement with BTU, our first since announcing our recent integration into the wider Travelport group.
“BTU has seen the advantage of having a committed local team to serve its needs on the ground that is backed by global resources. Being able to access those wider synergies, technology, products and people is a great advantage.”
