Corporate Travelers Using RESX Get Mobile Access
ATLANTA, Feb. 6 -- TRX, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRXI), a global technology company that develops and hosts software applications to process data records and automate manual processes, today announced the release of RESX Mobile(TM) as a key extension of the RESX traveler empowerment suite of features.
RESX is a leading online booking tool allowing corporate travelers to create policy-compliant and on-budget travel reservations via a hosted Web interface. RESX Mobile(TM) provides travelers instant on-demand access to view RESX trips via their mobile devices with internet capability.
"We have set the standard for what corporate travelers are demanding from the mobile Internet. RESX Mobile is intuitively-designed and optimized for mobile device access," said Shane Hammond, President, RESX Technologies. "We designed RESX Mobile with the needs of road warriors squarely in sight. We also recognized that the optimal solution was not a simple re-creation of our traditional internet application. RESX Mobile is easy to use, requires minimal data entry, and is accessible across a broad base of mobile devices."
"Our design focuses on delivering content to end users as quickly as possible," said Curtis Socha, Software Development Manager, RESX Technologies, "By keeping our design simple we have been able to deliver a powerful set of features quickly, going from concept to production in less than 90 days."
Prior to launching the mobile service, the application underwent an exhaustive 45-day internal pilot, servicing the needs of more than 800 employees worldwide. In addition, a two-week beta test was conducted which garnered input from several current RESX re-sellers and end-users.
"Our clients are very pleased with the ability to now access their itineraries created via RESX on their smart phones. This innovation has taken RESX to a new level of functionality and has provided a great benefit for the travelers we support," said John Heimburger, President, TravelPlex American Express.
