Travelport (NYSE: TVPT), a leading Travel Commerce Platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry, today announced UNIGLOBE Travel Partners, a leading travel management company specializing in corporate travel, has signed a new multi-year contract with Travelport. UNIGLOBE Travel Partners, a former long-time Travelport customer, returned to Travelport after a six-year absence, attracted by Travelport’s innovative, industry leading technology, including Travelport Smartpoint, Travelport Rich Content and Branding, Travelport Rooms and More, and Agency Technology, Travelport’s mid-office partner solution that reduces costs and increases agency efficiency.
To minimize service interruptions to its largest corporate account, UNIGLOBE Travel Partners needed Travelport to expedite the conversion process as quickly as possible—a challenge successfully met by Travelport by completing agency’s conversion from start to finish in a remarkable 35 days.
“Returning to Travelport was a great business decision for us because of the superior technology Travelport offered our agency. And the total commitment Travelport made to converting our systems and training our people in only 35 days demonstrated their dedication and support for our agency,” said Mitchell Hicks, president of UNIGLOBE Travel Partners. “We couldn’t be happier to partner with Travelport once again.”
“When UNIGLOBE Travel Partners asked for expedited onboarding and support, our sales, implementation, and technology teams acted with laser focus and great teamwork to ‘make the ‘impossible possible’ for our customer,” said Scott Hyden, group vice president and managing director sales for Travelport.
