Quiz: What’s your agent style?

Amadeus

Are you the kind of agent that works best under pressure? Do you like doing things the old school way? Or are you fresh on the scene in the travel world?

Find out which kind of agent you are, and how you’ll benefit from Amadeus’ new game changing technology.

 

The multi-tasker

Do you juggle your bookings like a circus clown? Are you always flitting from one meeting to another? Do you use your tablet while watching TV?

You are the multi-tasker; fast, busy, a student of chaos.

Amadeus Selling Platform Connect now features the ability to book up to 12 segments of an itinerary at the one time, as well as the capability to look after more than one client booking simultaneously, leaving you to book trips while watching Masterchef.

 

The experienced agent

Do you know the code for every airport better than you know your partner’s birthday? Do you like old school devices better than the flashy new ones? Is your favourite saying, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’?

You are the experienced agent; hard working, traditional and clued in.

Amadeus understands that change isn’t for everyone, and gives you the option of using command layout screens instead of graphical, where you can enter bookings in the same way as always, but tap into the extra benefits of the latest technology available.

 

The Newbie

Are you Gen Y? Are you a bit green in the industry, and sometimes have to use Google to find airline codes? Do you like fast food, fast facts, and next-day delivery?

You are the newbie; fresh, inexperienced, and have all the latest gadgets for instant gratification.

Using Amadeus Selling Platform Connect requires minimal training, and makes you self-sufficient straight off the bat. The intuitive system has predictive features when you’re searching for things, and organises itineraries in a clean, simple format. The new layout also means all the technical work is done behind the scenes. You can book a flight before you can say ‘French Fries’.

 

The mobile agent

 

Checking his emails

Do you make bookings on the go? Do you prefer standing to sitting and rarely work at an office desk? Do you think more clearly when moving around?

You are the mobile agent; busy, nomadic and flexible.

Lucky for you, Amadeus Selling Platform Connect is the first truly mobile online booking platform, which you can use on any computer, from anywhere, just by logging in online. The efficient format also means it’s easy to book with a client on the spot.

 

The desk worker

 

Do what you love

Are you a 9-5 office agent? Do you battle through bookings all day? Do you have impeccable posture from sitting in an office chair for eight hours a day?

You are the desk worker; structured, efficient, but often time-poor.

The Amadeus system uses a new ‘Smart Flow’ feature, which simplifies the booking process – and speeds it up as well. You can book more than one thing at a time, get more done between 9 and 5, and still get home in time for The Block.

 

The Big Boss

 

Lazy disrespectful businessman

Are you responsible for a number of staff? Do you lose precious hours training new employees? Do you make the major business decisions? Do you miss making it home in time for dinner?

You are the big boss; engaged, ambitious and accountable.

Amadeus Selling Platform Connect offers a simple and intuitive system that makes training new staff, or upskilling loyal workers, a piece of cake. The workspace gives the choice of graphical or command page, so employees work in their preferred setting, and the multiple bookings allow for big business with less hassle. Because it’s online, it also means you’re always using the latest version of the product.
