“Mobile devices will have a profound and lasting impact on travel and the business of travel procurement and management. What we see today with online social media and some of the first mobile applications will quickly be surpassed by ubiquitous access to contextual information, augmented reality and real-time decision making tools in the hands of travelers,” said Richard Crum, President of AirPlus International, Inc. “At AirPlus we are committed to developing tools to bring the power of information to travel professionals and ultimately to the traveler themselves. We actively participate in the growing social media communities that dominate the discussion today and will lead the way for enabling companies to make smart decisions based on the best data going forward.”
The Wire…from AirPlus is a monthly report on the pulse of the industry and its relevant topics. Results of this edition are based on a survey of 71 travel management professionals in North America and Europe from March 9 to March 19, 2010.
