When it was launched SABS Agent revolutionised the way in which retail travel agents searched and booked package holidays and charter airfares in an internet environment

The 2011 release of SABS Agent 2 takes users to even greater levels of technological excellence
 and ensure SABS remains the market leader in travel technology and the preferred search engine choice
 of travel professionals in the UK

A User guide is sent to you as a new user and and training on SABS Agent 2 is available Free  over the phone once you become an existing user. Induction takes approx. 30 minutes and your call will be charged at your normal call rate

NEW SABS Agent 2 FEATURES
  • Bolder, clearer search buttons, menus, baskets and options

  • Quicker searches and results

  • All results are returned on one screen - no more paging through results looking for the best deal!

  • Brochure information and images are now available via the new gallery

  • Multi-point dynamic filters allow you to very quickly filter results on multiple criteria including operator, accommodation name, star rating, resort, board basis and more

  • The left hand menu can now be hidden and re-displayed for those agents with smaller screens

  • Client and Agent itineraries allow the agent to see a full breakdown of items

GRAPHIC GUIDED TOUR

 There are fundamentally 3 ways to utilise Viewdata within SABS

SEARCH OPTION 1 - Search the online cache database & then book via Viewdata


SEARCH OPTION  2  - Perform live multi operator searches and then book via Viewdata

SEARCH OPTION 3 - traditional one to one live viewdata search of individual tour operator

Additional dynamic packaging options & SABS AGENT additional features

 SEARCH OPTION 1

SEARCH THE ONLINE CACHE DATABASE & MAKE A BOOKING

SABS subscribers log into the SABS system on their PC from any available Internet connection, (no software installation is required) - so SABS users can therefore access their profile in the system from anywhere in the world and enter their clients requirements in the online search form. The form enables agents to manually specify up to 3 departure points and 3 arrival points or  utilise sophisticated departure and destination groupings

 

Provided the 'Choose Operator' fields are left blank when requesting a search, SABS will bring back results from all the tour operators in the database that match the current search criteria

FAST RETRIEVAL OF RESULTS

The ultra fast retrieval of flight and holiday availability from multiple sources means that customers are offered a wide selection of suitable holidays within seconds. By default results are returned pre-sorted by price but can be resorted by by other criteria such as tour operator or destination by clicking on the column heading .

 

You can then select the results of specific interest to the client by highlighting them and clicking the 'Continue' button at the foot of the page

MORE INFORMATION

Clicking on the + to the right of any result found not only gives you comprehensive information about the option but also the ability to e-mail a full colour brochure page (if available) direct to a customers inbox with a covering note

The 'More details' link opens up even more comprehensive information enabling you to answer every question the customer may have about the accommodation thereby demonstrating a high degree of professionalism on your part

MULTIPLE PAGES

One of the major technical leaps forward from SABS 1 to SABS 2 is the ability to have multiple pages open simultaneously and simply tab between them without having to click back and/or having to refresh the screen in order to retrieve previously viewed data

BOOK BY VIEWDATA

Clicking on the 'Book' button will take the agent directly to the selected tour operators Viewdata reservation system  without any further keystrokes auto-filling all the tour operator log in and search criteria fields.

'SAVE' BASKET



Another very useful new feature in SABS2 is the ability save the results of your SABS session in a 'Basket'

Components in the basket can then be booked or indexed and stored in your SABS profile for subsequent retrieval
 

SEARCH OPTION  2  - LIVE MULTI OPERATOR SEARCHES AND THEN BOOKING VIA VIEWDATA

SEARCH OPTION 2 involves  performing real time 'EXTENDED SEARCHES' via Viewdata (i.e. LIVE in real time) of up to four tour operators simultaneously . You may specify and store your 4 x preferred operators in your SABS User Profile or specify manually in the search Form.

As with database searches above clicking on the 'BOOK' (by viewdata) button will take you directly to the tour operators VIEWDATA booking system without any further keystrokes

(return to viewdata search options)
 

SEARCH OPTION 3 - TRADITIONAL ONE TO ONE LIVE VIEWDATA SEARCH OF INDIVIDUAL TOUR OPERATOR

In addition to all its advanced cutting edge features S.A.B.S. enables agents to maintain traditional direct  'one to one'  VIEWDATA links to every operator bookable on the original FASTRAK and ISTEL Viewdata Networks via any Broadband connection. SABS sends the Tour Op code / Agents ABTA (TTA or similar) membership number / Unique Viewdata password / User Initials automatically as part of the log in script (Your  passwords are stored on you unique SABS profile when you become a subscriber)
