LONDON – 7 February 2011 – Sabre Travel Network, the leading provider of high performance solutions for the
travel industry, has won an Innovation Award in the Travel and Meeting Technology category from the Business

platform - the same technology used by NASA to command the Mars rover missions – and provides unprecedented
flexibility to put everything users need right at their fingertips.
“Travel management companies know they can count on Sabre to deliver innovations that help them succeed,” said
Martin Cowley, senior vice president for Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Sabre Travel Network. “By listening to
customers, we can identify their needs and deliver the essential tools that they demand to stay competitive and win

• Highly Configurable

testing a fully graphical workflow for air, car and hotel, expanding on its current graphical capabilities. The expanded
graphical workflow will deliver significantly greater efficiency and ease of use, even for the most expert agents.
“To be successful, savvy agencies will want to embrace new technologies to meet the changing needs of tomorrow’s
travellers. We want to be their partner at every step along the way,” said Cowley.
