Atinera has acquired Atlas from Amadeus Australia. Atlas was created in 1984 and currently delivers hosted solutions to nearly 20 tour operators and travel suppliers across Australia.
The Atlas system processes close to one million passengers per year for its customers.
Atinera will integrate the Atlas team of approximately 65 employees into its global operations. The majority of technical support and ongoing development for the Asia/Pacific region will be managed from the Brisbane Technical Support and Development Centre. Existing Atlas customers will migrate to the Atinera platform beginning in 2002.
Atinera provides a state-of-the art, quick-to-deploy hosted travel management solution that allows tour operators and suppliers of any size to take advantage of powerful web-enabled automation and business integration tools. The Atinera system allows products to be sold across multiple channels (GDS, Web, call centers, etc.), with different price and commission structures, and in different currencies.
Atinera EMEA, a joint venture between Amadeus and Fourth Dimension Software and supported by Atinera Holding, San Francisco, was launched in the UK at the end of October 2001.
