NEW YORK, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CheapOair, a leading flight-focused, next generation concierge travel service, was recently awarded a Gold Stevie by the American Business Awards for its innovative app development for both the iOS and Android operating systems.
The American Business Awards were created in 2002 to honor the achievements of organizations and professionals in the United States. It is one of the premier business awards organizations in the U.S. and features a variety of categories to recognize all areas of the workplace. The entries are judged by a panel of respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators and business educators. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations in all industries were submitted for consideration in the 2017 competition.
"This award is very exciting as we have worked very hard this year to make our mobile app the most efficient in the travel industry," said Sam S. Jain, CEO and Founder of CheapOair. "Our mission is to create the world's best customer experience on all of our platforms and this recognition is a testament to our skilled mobile development teams' ability to achieve this goal."
The CheapOair app gives customers access to over 450 airlines, 150,000 hotels, and hundreds of rental car companies on the go. The app is personalized to each user with a "Predictive Home Screen" that understands where the user is in the search process and provides contextually relevant options. Additionally, with the integration of Apple Pay and Android Pay, customers can complete their transactions simply and safely without pulling out their wallet.
In the past year, the app made great leaps in functionality. Highlights include:
- Personalized push notifications for upcoming trips
- Integration with Apple Watch for a quick glance at itineraries
- A companion Apple TV app allowing users to browse destinations and add them to a Wishlist that they can later access through the app to book
- The convenience of selecting seats right from the app
- US-Spanish, Canadian, Mexican and Australian versions
"Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud," said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards.
