SOUTHLAKE, Texas – A new mobile technology gives travelers the ability to book air reservations from their cell phone within company policy and preferences.
Travelers can book hotel and air reservations with GetThere, a global technology company that serves corporations. The technology can be used on most mobile devices including iPhone, Blackberry and Android.
“With GetThere’s new mobile capabilities, we can better meet travelers’ needs on the road, while still adhering to the corporation’s policies and preferences,” said Paul Wiley, chief product and strategy officer for GetThere. “That means increased savings for the corporation and a better travel experience for employees. Several GetThere customers are already using the new functionality, and their travelers are delighted with this ‘on the go’ capability.”
In Sabre’s biannual survey of travelers in December, 74 business travelers reported that they were highly interested in booking air reservations using mobile devices; 70 percent were highly interested in booking hotel reservations.
