Sabre rolls out Red Workspace for agents

Following testing, Sabre’s next-generation travel agency desktop is now available in four languages.

Global travel technology provider Sabre is now in the midst of efforts to upgrade travel agency customers around the world to Sabre Red Workspace, the company’s new point-of-sale tool for agencies.

The solution is rolling out in English, German, Spanish and Japanese, with French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese following later.

Sabre says that the new product release comes after “an extensive pilot and testing phase with selected customers”.

“The initial feedback from our early customers is fantastic, and we are eager to release the new Sabre Red Workspace globally with regional language versions,” says Wade Jones, president of Sabre Travel Network.

“This groundbreaking solution will change the way travel agents work by combining rich content with flexibility, simplicity and ease of use.”

Intuitive experience
Sabre Red Workspace is a “highly configurable interface that features an intuitive user experience backed by a content-rich marketplace”, the GDS maintains.

The new product is designed to make a travel agent’s job easier, it says, while increasing productivity.

The solution delivers a “differentiated value” to customers by focusing on three core areas: adding content, providing data-driven insights and “taking the work out of the workspace”.

Agents can get instant access to the latest web services and content to more nimbly adapt to the changing travel industry, Sabre says.

Airline products can be presented with rich visual graphics and descriptive content, allowing suppliers to differentiate offers. And as airlines introduce future NDC-based offerings, the new Sabre Red Workspace will help to “seamlessly present this new content”.
