Singapore-based Abacus International, a leading travel facilitator in Asia-Pacific with around 11,000 travel agency locations in 22 markets, has officially launched Abacus WebConnect. This, the facilitator’s latest toolkit, enables travel agents to devel

Using Abacus’ WebConnect, a technology that enables travel agents to connect their websites to Abacus’ content and functionalities, agents will apparently now be able to create their own customised look and feel on a website.

“Abacus is assisting the entire travel industry to move with the times and is providing opportunities to allow travel agents to grow alternate revenue sources with tools like Abacus WebConnect,” contends Aileen Tan, Vice President, Centres of Excellence at Abacus International. “This latest business-to-customer solution (B2C) empowers travel agents to boost their online presence and provides their travellers with access to online bookings for both air and non-air travel.”

She continues that the Internet is a powerful resource, and with increasing Internet usage in Asia, travellers want more online options to search and book travel content themselves.

“Abacus understands this need and provides the necessary content, technology, infrastructure, network and tools to assist travel agents and partners to tap into this growing online travel market.”

Abacus is also working with technology partners to offer a variety of seamless end-to-end solutions.
