THE ATPI TRAVEL GROUP LAUNCHES UPGRADE FOR ITS POPULAR 'ON THE GO' APP
Published on 2012-09-21
Leading corporate travel management and events business, the ATPI Group, has launched an enhanced and updated version of its popular 'On the Go' smart phone app. The new features have been developed in response to demand from users to meet the increasingly specific needs of business travellers.
Since its initial global launch earlier this year, usage of the app has continued to grow amongst clients of the ATPI Group and this new upgraded version is expected to a popular tool for busy corporate travellers. Entering its second phase, the enhanced app now includes flight booking functionality for both scheduled and low cost carriers and an improved mobile itinerary, where a ticket numbers are recorded in all flight bookings.
The performance and speed of the app has also been optimised, and security features have been upgraded.
ATPI CEO Graham Ramsey commented:
"Smart phones have become an essential tool for business travellers, largely owing to the fact that information can be accessed instantly and easily. Since taking our first steps into the field with our initial version we’ve maintained an open dialogue with users to ensure that we can respond to their feedback and take actions based on their ever changing requirements. As a result, we’re consistently able to make strategic improvements to the app to improve our services and ensure our clients can get to their place of work quickly and efficiently. There’s certainly no sign of app technology slowing down, therefore we are continually developing the functions to stay one step ahead of the needs of our clients."
The app is available free for ATPI Group customers via iPhone, Android and Blackberry worldwide from the respective app stores - iTunes, Google Play, and Blackberry App World. The app can also be downloaded by any smart phone user, although some booking-specific functions require ATPI client log-in information and therefore are not accessible to all.
Additional features of the 'On the Go' include a currency converter, world clock and details of all the ATPI Group office locations and telephone numbers worldwide. A separate destination guide section offers handy tips on where to go and what to see in cities around the globe.
