Short’s Travel Management, Inc., a full-service travel management company and industry leader in innovation, recently launched a mobile-friendly version of its proprietary online booking tool, Short’s Travel Online (STO).
STO now adapts its display for optimal viewing on any size screen or resolution. Travelers are able to book air, car and hotel on their mobile devices, in addition to being able to access their itineraries and view trip details. With one touch, travelers are also now able to contact an agent to assist with any travel related questions.
Another advantage to using STO’s mobile-friendly version – no download or installation is required. “App overload is becoming more of a relevant frustration for today’s consumers,” noted Zac Harlan, Director of IT at Short’s Travel. “We took that heavily into consideration throughout planning and development.”
Short’s Travel developed STO’s mobile-friendly functionality to improve the user experience for its travelers using STO to book travel, as well as retrieve trip information, while on the go. Short’s Travel is also able to differentiate itself in the market as one of just a handful of travel management companies who have built and continue to offer its own booking tool.
“The ability to make enhancements in our own booking tool, on our timeline, is a huge differentiator for us in the market,” said Short’s Travel’s CEO, David LeCompte. “We work closely with our clients to find out what they’re looking for in our tools. We assess their wants and needs, align them with our company objectives, and then have the ability to make it happen. It’s as simple and fast-moving as that.”
With a now fully staffed, internal team of product developers, Short’s Travel will continue to place a heavy focus on staying ahead of its competitors on the innovation curve.
