35% of travel management companies use Sabre CentralCommand

UNIT4 Business Software announced that 35 percent of the travel management companies use Sabre CentralCommand with Agresso as their back-office to improve efficiency, control costs, and take better business decisions.

The company cited listing in Travel Weekly, a travel trade publication.

Sabre Travel Network and UNIT4 Business Software have combined their travel and enterprise resource planning (ERP) into a back-office solution. Post-implementation agility enables business users to make ongoing changes independently, without involving costly IT staff or re-implementing their back-office systems.

CentralCommand provides integrated approach that enables travel management companies to lower costs and increase margins, expand their businesses and grow their customer base with exceptional service delivery.

“Bringing together the travel database with live interface to the general ledger saves time, reduces headcount and allows us to see, at any given moment, the complete picture of ARC sales and the agency’s revenue. The new multi-client feature allows us greater flexibility to operate a multi-divisional agency with different business models and to rapidly integrate acquisitions,” said Willie Lynch, CFO of Travel Leaders Group.

“With its frequent mergers and acquisitions, regulatory changes, and competitive pressures, the travel industry is fertile ground for CentralCommand’s ability to manage change,” said Charles Johnston, director of travel industry solutions at UNIT4 Business Software.

“Competition continues to drive down service fees and pressure margins; travel management companies can no longer operate efficiently using disparate, independent systems and manual interventions. To stay competitive and grow, especially into new lines of business and into new global markets, these companies need a modern back-office designed specifically to manage growth and change,” Johnston added.
