Kanoo Travel has marked a new milestone by rolling out the new Sabre Red 360 (SR 360) across its offices in the Middle East in attempt to fuel its ambitious growth plans by enabling intelligent retailing to improve efficiency and boost recovery. With access to a full spectrum of travel booking and merchandising through an intuitive and customizable user interface, the next generation travel agency desktop SR 360, will help Kanoo Travel address industry challenges and respond to ever changing traveller demands.
