Sabre Pacific today announced the launch of a new service to help Australian agencies take advantage of cloud computing. Sabre Vero is the next evolution in computing infrastructure which allows travel consultants to access their agency applications as a virtual desktop.
This new Sabre Pacific service provides access to the agent desktop from multiple devices including Mac, PC, desktop, laptop, zero client, iPad, tablet or smart devices, across multiple locations, each with user controlled authentication for increased security. Allowing customers to take their world with them wherever they go.
The service gives consultants the flexibility to pick and choose which applications to include in their virtual desktop based on individual requirements. They can include Sabre Red, Sabre Pacific applications, Microsoft Office 365 (including Outlook and Microsoft Office applications), One drive, printing, anti-virus and any agency web applications.
“Sabre Vero allows the travel industry to centralise their technology offering with managed technical support for the Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and associated applications,” said Sabre Pacific managing director, Jeremy van de Klundert.
Perfect for remote or mobile team-members, in-office hot-desking and anyone who wants the freedom to take their world with them wherever they need it.
“By minimising expenditure on local hardware and office based servers, cloud computing is not only a cheaper option for travel agencies but it also delivers efficiency, flexibility and increases consultant productivity,” continued van de Klundert.
A recent survey conducted by the technology leader revealed that the most important factor for agencies today is to have flexible access to data and the ability to work anywhere. They found that almost two thirds of the respondents need to access their computer files and data at least once daily, and yet only a third have a cloud based solution that allows them to meet this need. The main reason cited was a lack of knowledge on how to go about setting this up.
“Sabre Vero solves this issue for our customers,” said van de Klundert. “Our customers look to us as their technology partner to help them with more than just their GDS. Sabre Vero gives consultants in Australia the IT infrastructure they need to leverage technology to succeed.”
