QuadLabs Technologies & IATA (International Air Transport Association) jointly launch the new AgentExperience site to better serve the IATA/IATAN ID Card community. The AgentExperience platform is built on the base Konnect.travel platform provided by QuadLabs.
The AgentExperience site supports the IATA/IATAN ID Card program. With an IATA/IATAN ID Card travel agents are recognized around the world for being a travel professional and important distributor of travel products. In return travel suppliers provide benefits and incentive programs to ID Card Holders. The AgentExperience site showcases the various benefits, offers and promotions provided by global travel suppliers for the business or leisure travel of the registered IATA/IATAN ID card holders. The new AgentExperience provides travel suppliers enhanced functionality in promoting benefits and incentives programs, as well offers suppliers and ID Card Holders the opportunity to complete the booking process on AgentExperience. The new AgentExperience is offered in Canada first and will soon be available for more than 120,000 ID Card Holders worldwide.
