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 include: -- 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 -- One click access and log-on to Sabre Vacations, Consolidator Mall and Web air fares -- Access to the Jurni agency marketing programs system -- Agent access to Web itineraries -- Preferred travel product preferencing -- Single sign-in to all linked applications Training for Jurni agents on the Jurni Network desktop application is available through self-paced training courses and Webinars.
