Tnooz and Sabre Travel Network have agreed to a content partnership where Tnooz articles will appear in AgentStream, Sabre’s online community for travel agents.
Under the agreement, Sabre will promote Tnooz editorial content on the AgentStream homepage, and the stories will appear within a Tnooz Group on AgentStream, where agent members can read and discuss them.
Tnooz also will contribute a monthly feature for AgentStream.
The partnership gives Tnooz the opportunity to expand its reach within the travel agency community, and enables Sabre to better inform AgentStream users about trends in online travel and technology.
"Tnooz covers travel tech for all points of view in the travel industry," says Gene Quinn, Tnooz CEO. "We are pleased to join AgentStream and Sabre in delivering news and analysis to travel agents, who are the trusted human interface between travelers and their destinations."
“With so much going on in the travel industry, and so many different channels to get information, it can be hard for agencies to stay on top of relevant industry news,” adds Chris Kroeger, senior vice president of marketing, Sabre Travel Network.
“Our new agreement with Tnooz provides our AgentStream community members with nearly real-time updates on the latest travel industry news and is part of our ongoing commitment to provide our agency customers with the tools they need to be effective and efficient in their jobs, and enhance the service they provide customers.”
Organized around agents’ profiles in the system, AgentStream features a question and answer center for agent collaboration, gives members the ability to form groups around subjects they are interested in, and also provides the ability for AgentStream members to message one another.
Launched in 2008, AgentStream is open to all travel agents, regardless of GDS affiliation or non-affiliation. Some 70% of its 3,100 active members are Sabre subscribers.
With a presence in the US, the UK and the Middle East, AgentStream plans in the fourth quarter to launch beta websites in Latin America, and Australia-New Zealand.
