TravelTech Show: SABS launches next-gen booking tool Enterprise
SABS Travel Technologies launched its next-generation online booking tool Enterprise at the TravelTech Show in London this week.
The technology specialist said Enterprise is a “revolutionary leap forward” for SABS’ proprietary online booking tool, which counts several leading UK and European travel management company and corporates as customers.
The company said that, pre-pandemic, SABS clients used the technology to fulfil 7.2 million bookings for more than 1.5 million passengers annually.
While trip volumes have already returned to between 45-60% of pre-pandemic levels, SABS managing director Brian Sheerin expects to not only meet, but exceed, 2019 levels within the next 12 months.
Enterprise will also be available in an additional six European languages: French, German, Italian, Polish, Dutch-Flemish and Swedish.
It will offer sustainability features, allowing users to set carbon budgets and compare the CO2 impact of switching travel modes.
Bookers can identify the most sustainable travel option in an instant in search results.
There are destination-specific alerts and traveller wellbeing alerts such as pop-ups that suggest alternate routes or an overnight stay to avoid long days of travelling.
Existing SABS customers will be offered a free upgrade and conversion from SCION to Enterprise.
Sheerin said: “Enterprise is the most advanced booking tool on the market, period. So, it’s not surprising so many leading UK and European TMCs use it rather than investing millions in developing their own IP.
“What’s more, Enterprise is far from a standard off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all package – every Enterprise solution is built bespoke for each customer and designed to solve their customers’ needs, which can vary greatly depending on the industry they operate in, whether that’s media, retail, law, public service, government or many others.”
