Sabre introduces digital solutions to accelerate NDC adoption in Asia-Pacific

Sabre Corporation is introducing two new cloud-based next-generation travel management solutions to accelerate digital transformation and New Distribution Capability (NDC) adoption for travel agents across Asia-Pacific.

Building upon existing XML PowerSuite software, PowerSuite Cloud provides a refreshed and modernised user experience, offering a full-scale accounting solution for travel businesses of all sizes.

PowerSuite Cloud Lite will first be available in Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong before rolling out to the rest of the region – it is an entirely new launch offering a front to mid-office integration best suited for smaller agencies, ensuring access to critical financial tools and NDC integration with many of the same advanced features as PowerSuite Cloud.

Both solutions offer a host of advantages for travel agencies, including full integration with Sabre’s intuitive booking platform Sabre Red 360; advanced automation capabilities to significantly reduce manual efforts in mid-to-back-end financial operations, allowing agencies to reallocate resources to more strategic tasks; cost efficiencies; real-time financial insights empowering agencies with data-driven decision-making capabilities; cloud-based flexibility to access financial data securely from anywhere; as well as compliance and security of which PowerSuite Cloud and PowerSuite Cloud Lite adhere to highest industry standards, enabling agencies to protect financial data and operate in accordance with regional regulations.

So far, travel agents have found the new PowerSuite Cloud and PowerSuite Cloud Lite beneficial for their business.

Tatang Tabrani, managing director, Global Travel in Singapore said: “Being one of the early adopters of PowerSuite Cloud in Singapore… we were pleasantly surprised by the completely new user experience and enhanced features, while reaping the business benefits from moving the infrastructure to the Cloud thus achieving our green objective.”

Peter Williams, managing director & CEO of Phil Hoffmann Travel in Australia, remarked: “Since moving to PowerSuite Cloud, we’ve been able to reduce costs and increase productivity through automation, while having easy access to comprehensive real-time insights needed to make informed decisions for revenue growth. We’ve been impressed by how intuitive and productive PowerSuite Cloud is, enabling our team to have greater control to elevate the entire client experience.”

“Sabre’s PowerSuite Cloud is already proving to be a game-changer for us,” added Choo Kok Leong, CEO of Boustead Travel Services in Malaysia. “PowerSuite has been a reliable tool for us for many years, helping us automate processes and streamlining our financial operations.  We now have peace of mind that our business will not be disrupted by the increasing complexity of airline content.”

“Just as Sabre is accelerating our own digital transformation with our move to the Cloud, we know our travel agents need to make technological transformations of their own if they are to compete effectively in this rapidly-evolving travel industry landscape,” said Brett Thorstad, vice president of Sabre Travel Solutions, agency sales and airline distribution, Asia Pacific.
