CWT Launches Mobile App for Booking Domestic Business

CWT Launches Mobile App for Booking Domestic Business

Travel in China

SYDNEY, JANUARY 17 2013 – Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) today announces the launch of a mobile booking app called CWT Online China that enables China based business travellers to book domestic travel via their smartphone, an industry-first in this market.

CWT has recognised the high demand for innovative products and tools to support travellers, having already released the international online booking tool, also called CWT Online specifically for the Chinese market in September, another first for the industry.

As more and more leisure travellers use mobile devices to plan and purchase travel, CWT China has followed suit by developing a mobile booking app that provides business travellers access to real time data and makes the booking process quick, easy and efficient. This launch further signifies CWT China’s commitment to continuous innovation and positions mobile solutions as an integral part of its offering.

Albert Zhong, General Manager, CWT China said “We are the first and only Travel Management Company (TMC) in China to launch a mobile app to book business travel.” He went on to say “our in-house IT team has independently created this app using the latest technology to produce a user-friendly app that is available across multiple platforms”.

The mobile app allows the business traveller to book a business trip anytime, anywhere and there are also plans to increase the functionality of the mobile app to include international bookings in the near future.

CWT Online China also allows access to a wide range of domestic, in-country services, including booking, itinerary, changes in travel schedule and location-based information. The app cooperates with a company’s travel policy and has a built in approval process.

Mr. Zhong said “moving to a mobile version of the booking tool means travellers can book travel when they are on the go. The app has also been certified and passed the security testing based on industry standards (Mobile OWASP Top 10)”.

Exclusive to CWT China the app is now available to CWT travellers on iOS and Android, and will be available on Blackberry and Windows Phone soon.

Download it today!

In addition to CWT Online China, CWT clients in China now have exclusive access to TravelSky’s latest mobile app which provides business travellers with services such as trip reminder, personal travel assistant, flight change/cancellation, boarding gate guidance, ticket verification and destination weather. A great accompaniment to CWT Online China.
