All About Sabre GDS

Sabre and Sabre Red Workspace

Am I required to take Sabre?  Sabre is totally optional

From the original travel inquiry on the front end, to serving your customers throughout the trip experience, to business intelligence to close the loop, Sabre Red is the total travel solution to drive customer loyalty and power business performance.
 Success in the travel business requires a healthy balance. On one hand, there's resource spent on customer service and on the other hand there's achieving your profitability goals. Focus only on efficiency and the customer experience suffers. Likewise, overextend resources to build loyalty and profits disappear. Creating and maintaining high customer loyalty -- while also growing revenue and keeping costs in check - is the essence of value creation for your business.
