A thriving energy related industrial base, the city houses some of the elite names in the world of energy such as ExxonMobil, Shell, Dolphin Energy, Qatargas and RasGas LNG production facilities.

The new round-the-clock service centre in Doha is equipped with the latest call centre equipment and enhanced management information reporting (MIR) to meet the customers’ needs.

A critical part of the corporate services centre is the backend infrastructure that helps the agency sustain its excellent standards in customer facing services.

The corporate service centre is part of our re-engineering process which involves developing our travel management team, investing in ‘leading edge’ technology and delivering our quality service and ‘best price’ promises - every time,” says Julian Knott, Divisional General Manager, Kanoo Travel.
