Travel, a leading travel management company (TMC) serving multi-national
corporations and government agencies, today announced an agreement to
become the first TMC to globally integrate, promote and distribute Sabre
Travel Studios’ TripCase(SM) smart mobile application.
The innovative solution includes full integration of Omega Travel customers'

empowered and connected wherever they travel.

of communication, risk management and corporate responsibility,”
says Gloria Bohan, Omega’s Chief Executive Officer. “TripCase’s
advanced technologies keep travelers connected and informed during every
aspect of their trip.”

that conceived and launched TripCase. “Beyond merely keeping travelers
informed, corporations working with progressive TMCs can utilize this
platform to enhance collaboration, drive usage of preferred suppliers,
