Travelport touting new agency desktop for all brands

wil1_thumb.jpg
Travelport, Tantalizing. Travelport is planning something called a universal desktop, which if it lives up to its promises will offer almost everything they need to travel agencies in one nice little box. Gordon Wilson, the Brit to the right who heads up Travelport’s GDS, the former Galileo, spent a little time telling Left Field about this new tool, which will be able to wrap into one ‘box’ access to all of the Global Distribution Systems, including rivals Sabre and Amadeus. This is something of a holy grail for agents, both retail ‘Main Street’ types and more importantly the corporate agencies. Agents often become tied to one or another GDS through its desktop presence in their offices. But one screen to search means faster ways to find deals, comparison shop, and keep the client content, if not happy. 

The Travelport desktop, Wilson vows, will be different, allowing agents to eliminate the Travelport_screenshot.gifold-fashioned complex coding and abstruse commands of the GDSs. Wilson also tells us that Travelport is working with Microsoft on new technology to allow collaboration among the Universal Desktop’s users. For instance, smaller companies who are working on a project in collaboration, say a builder, an architect and an interior designer, “will be able to set up an ad hoc travel community to share travel plans so that they can coordinate arriving at a site from different locations.”  But we’ll have to wait a few months until this magic box becomes an everyday reality.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Tree houses are currently a trend that shows no sign of declining. Isn’t it time to build your tree house? The syberite tree houses are intricately designed structures that obey the guidelines of nature. Realistically the position falls into any willing adult who’s responsible enough to construct something to soundly hold several children ten feet up via a flight.
