Jurni Network Launches One-of-a-Kind Desktop Application

Apr 26, 2004, 01:00 ET from Sabre Travel Network

    SOUTHLAKE, Texas, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Jurni Network, the offline
 leisure travel agency consortium, today announced the launch of Jurni
 InternetView, the integrated desktop application for Jurni member agents.
 Jurni InternetView allows a combination of global distribution system (GDS)
 and Web-based capabilities to be presented in the same workspace.
     This unique GDS-independent desktop application, based on the Nexion
 technology platform, is designed to interface with a variety of popular
 booking engines, including Sabre Vacations, the Sabre Travel Network private
 label version of Trisept Solutions' VAX VacationAccess tour browser.
 Exceptional travel products and supplier promotions available through Jurni
 InternetView will enable member agencies to sell high-margin offers and high-
 quality programs to their customers.
     The easy-to-use Jurni desktop combines the traditional GDS displays,
 familiar to agents, with graphical user interfaces to specific areas for
 additional information.  Merchandising alerts prompt agents to recommend
 preferred suppliers' products matched to their customers through the Jurni
 market intelligence system.  Jurni agents can anticipate buying predictions
 about their customers to bring the right product to the right customer at the
 right time.
     "I am very excited about the potential of this tool and the positive
 impacts on my day to day working environment," said Loretta Hjorth of Hjorth
 Travel in San Diego.  "With everything in one convenient place, it allows me
 to spend more time working with my clients."
     "The integrated desktop enables Jurni Network member agencies to grow
 their businesses and turn more shoppers into buyers," said Chris Kroeger,
 general manager of Jurni Network.  "In addition, the technology and CRM
 capabilities help Jurni agents deliver more sales -- and higher yield sales --
 to preferred suppliers, thus meeting the business objectives of both agents
 and suppliers, while providing customers the travel experiences they most
 desire.  Significant other features will be added to the Jurni Network desktop
 in the near future, including dynamic packaging, back office functions and
 cruise booking enhancements, among others."
     Features of the Jurni Network integrated desktop application currently
      -- Stable, reliable connectivity that is compatible with any Internet
         service provider.  All Internet connections, including dial-up, DSL,
         cable and satellite, are supported.
      -- Seamless integration with GDS and other inventory sources
      -- Electronic capability to access rates and book over 300 blocked cruise
         space departures

      -- Access to the Jurni agency marketing programs system
      -- Agent access to Web itineraries
