LONDON, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GlobalStar Travel Management has announced signing a 3 year agreement with eGlobalfares, LLC, to power their FareStar branded multi-GDS compatible portal. The system allows GlobalStar consultants to search a global database with fares from every country where there is a GlobalStar partner. FareStar promotes collaboration amongst participating members, through their preferred GDS (Abacus, Amadeus, Apollo, Galileo, Sabre or Worldspan) in managing Global corporate accounts. This functionality means that participating members can share management and/or fulfillment for corporate accounts on a global basis through their agent's desktops. This is done in real time and is unmatched by any other product in the market today. eGlobalfares technology allows our members, on any major GDS, the ability to search, compare, reserve, have tickets issued and maintain visibility of the reservation and full management of the reservation.

Steve Hartwell, GlobalStar President said "We researched and reviewed several products in the market place in order to offer our members the "Best in Class" product which they need to compete with and in this case, surpass the global travel management providers who are global in foot print, but decentralized when it comes to this type of capability". Danny Eldridge, Executive Director of IT stated "The eGlobalfares proprietary software is extremely flexible and configurable from the agency level down to the individual agent level. This built in flexibility allows agencies with vastly different processes, needs and existing mid and back office systems to have the portal customized to their individual requirements. It is also a very intuitive system for agents at all skill levels to use". Jeremy Bull, Chairman of GlobalStar said that he was delighted with this development, as his own TMC, Hillgate Travel, has been using eGlobalfares for the last 3 years; "They have been a reliable Partner over this period and our relationship with them has gone from strength-to-strength".
