GO Winston News: Winston Transportation Group Releases its New App
For Immediate Release: New York (April 19, 2010) —
Travelers can now use an iPhone, iPod and iPad to reserve car or van service with Winston Transportation Group.
The Winston Transportation Group today announced the ability to receive reservations via travelers booking on their iPhone, iPod and iPad. “Our guests no longer need to be in front of a desktop or laptop computer in order to make their airport transportation reservations” Michael Laschever - President, Winston Transportation Group.
The new web-based application is available today, at no additional charge and has been specifically designed for use on the popular iPhone, iPod and iPad all developed by Apple, with millions of devices having been sold around the world.
“The overwhelming demand we see is for business and leisure travelers to be able to do more each and every day with their mobile devices, wherever they happen to find themselves” said The Hudson Group president and CEO Mark Ustik. “Whether it is an iPhone, BlackBerry, or other web-enabled device, Hudson remains committed to staying on the cutting edge of consumer electronics and providing travelers with more convenient ways to stay in touch with their transportation provider of choice, especially when away from their home or office. The iPhone application is another step forward in this direction.”
The iPhone product is a web-based application that can be launched and run on an iPhone, or iPod Touch that has Internet connectivity. The application displays locations, vehicle types and fare options for the traveler, pulling all this information in real-time from the transportation company’s web reservation system, also provided by The Hudson Group. By following the intuitive and simple screens, travelers “touch” their way quickly through the one way or round-trip airport reservation process. Upon completion, an email confirmation is sent to the traveler’s preferred email address. The travel details are downloaded immediately and simultaneously into the transportation company’s reservation and dispatch system.
“The Hudson Group has once again provided another avenue of convenience to our transportation clients’ travelers,” concludes Mark Ustik. “We are committed to reducing any barrier of inconvenience in the booking process faced by today’s business and leisure travelers.”
