Serko Limited (NZX:SKO), the Australasian leader in online travel booking and expense management for business, announced the launch of Serko Mobile; the first purpose-built mobile app that allows business travellers to make real-time changes to their travel plans using their mobile devices while still adhering to their companies’ travel policies.
“Travel can be a hassle and a distraction for the business traveller, especially when unplanned events require travel agents or corporate travel administrators to get involved. Serko Mobile empowers the business traveller to respond to changing circumstances with ease, when it suits them, wherever they are, so they can get to where they need to go, while staying safe and productive” says Darrin Grafton, Serko CEO.
Existing travel apps allow users to simply see their itineraries, while airline apps enable the traveller to make flight changes, but only if the booking has been made directly with them. Serko Mobile is unique because travellers can change their flights on multiple airlines, and change their hotels booked through Serko Online, all on the one app and all within the environment of their company’s managed travel policy.
