Introducing Kony Mobile Travel for Airlines, Hotels, and Car Rentals

Travel industry’s first mobile application suite running on all mobile devices and operating systems including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile and Palm

Kony, Inc., a mobile applications platform provider with Write Once, Run Everywhere technology, announced the launch of Kony Mobile Travel for Airlines, Hotels, and Car Rentals, a suite of pre-packaged mobile applications developed specifically for travel and hospitality companies. Kony Mobile Travel applications enable companies to quickly launch and maintain a unique mobile offering that delivers a full-featured, branded, mobile experience via native on-device applications, device-optimized mobile websites, and extensible clients such as SMS/MMS services and gadgets.
With Kony Mobile Travel applications, travelers can conduct real-time transactions such as book and amend flights, make hotel reservations, as well as other time saving features, including flight check-in, virtual room “keys”, and electronic boarding passes on their mobile device.

Based on our patent-pending Write Once, Run Everywhere technology, Kony Mobile Travel applications are hosted software applications that are configured once, and then immediately available for mobile operating systems like Apple iPhone, RIM BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Google Android, and Palm. Powering this multi-OS mobile technology is the Kony platform, an open, flexible and scalable mobile application development platform that provides a host of features to simplify application development and optimize the functions and user experience of each device’s native capabilities.

“Our mobile platform and vertical applications result in faster time-to-market, superior applications and user experience, and lower total cost of ownership,” said Raj Koneru, founder and CEO of Kony. “The travel industry is a prime landscape for the use of mobile functionality from contextual-based information distribution to mobile booking capabilities, making it a key market to leverage the latest mobile technology.”
