A mobile itinerary management application is to be offered to business travellers by Hogg Robinson Group.
The solution is being provided as part of a mobile technology partnership with Sabre Travel Network through its TripCase app.
It includes integration of client travel plans into the app, which is compatible with iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows Mobile devices and other mobile web browsers.
The mobile service will also allow the TMC to communicate with travellers post-booking and in-transit via a messaging platform on TripCase.
The move is part of increasing levels of mobile adoption across the corporate travel industry with most business travellers carrying a smartphone with them at all times.
HRG technology product development director Paul Saggar said: “TripCase is an innovative solution which enables us to provide timely and useful alerts and appropriate information via mobile devices.
“The mobile app will allow us to interact with our clients and their travellers in a more relevant fashion whilst still ensuring total security and data protection for all users.”
He added that TripCase offered a global solution, which can handle journey data from multiple sources.
Sabre Travel Network senior vice-president Chris Kroeger said: “TripCase in particular has unique messaging capabilities that will enable HRG to enhance the traveller experience by providing timely and relevant information throughout their entire trip, ultimately helping to drive long-term customer loyalty among their corporate users.’’
