Amadeus, a Global Distribution System (GDS) and leading provider of technology and marketing services for the travel industry, has selected Logibro Inc. to provide connection services in order to link vacation providers directly with its all-new browser-based distribution application.
Under the agreement, Amadeus will integrate Logibro`s connectivity technology, which enables a single cost-effective connection and interface between tour operators and GDSs. This connection behind the new Amadeus distribution application will give Amadeus users real-time access to reservations, availability and pricing, plus access to the rapidly expanding e-Marketplace of vacation products linked by Logibro technology.
``We are very pleased with this agreement and excited by what the Logibro technology will do for us,`` said Philippe Chereque, senior vice president, corporate strategy of Amadeus. ``Logibro`s connection services and interface are a key part of our strategy to build business, broaden our product offerings and extend our reach in the tour and leisure segment.``
Once the Logibro connection services are implemented with the new Amadeus distribution application, the GDS will be able to connect with and display tour operator product content for distribution directly to travel agents and through the Web.
``This agreement enhances Logibro`s position as a leading provider of e-Solutions for leisure travel,`` said Claude Guay, Logibro chief operating officer. ``Logibro solutions for managing, distributing and selling leisure travel are emerging as the technology of choice for global players and technology partners like Amadeus.``
