Jurni Network debuts customizable Web tool for members

SOUTHLAKE, Texas -- Jurni Network, the agency consortium created by Sabre Travel Network in 2003, rolled out Jurni Online, a suite of Web site products for its affiliates.

Jurni Online allows members to create and maintain individually branded consumer sites with promotions and content from Jurni preferred suppliers regularly updated by Jurni Network. In addition, a network spokesman said, the Jurni agencies can customize their sites with varying designs, custom logos and other elements.

Optional upgrades will allow members to include air, car and hotel booking capabilities by incorporating a Sabre booking engine or another booking engine of their choice. Members also will be able to add unique content and special promotions of their own, Jurni Network said.

The Jurni Online product is a private-label version of Passport Onlines NexCite Web site program.

Jurni Online sites, which can be marketed in e-mail promotions, also include a quick search box and the capability for establishing a sweepstakes or asking visitors to register for an agency newsletter (which will help members acquire names for their databases), Jurni Network said.

Members will license Jurni Online for a monthly fee.

A comparable Web site product line for hosted independent agents will be unveiled in late summer, Jurni Network added.
