Hawaii Outrigger upgrades agent education site April 02, 2012 Share 1 -- Outrigger Hospitality Group has launched an updated version of the Specialist Learning Center at its travel agent website, www.outriggeragent.com. The improvements include more comprehensive information on each Outrigger property, their features and amenities along with insider tips on things to do and see at each destination and an enhanced visual platform featuring new photography. “With consumer bookings through travel agents up in double digits in 2011, it is clear that agents continue to be key influencers in travel planning,” Lois Shore, vice president of distribution and marketing services for Outrigger Enterprises Group, said in a statement. “The new Learning Center takes our travel agent training tools to the next level, enabling agents to enjoy the education, sell with confidence and to easily match the right Outrigger property to the right client.” New Oahu and Neighbor Island education courses are currently available at the upgraded site, and a Maui Island course will be introduced later in April. Certified agents can earn Specialist Reward Points, redeemable for cash or gift certificates, for completing the Outrigger education courses and reporting qualified bookings at Outrigger properties.
