SilverRail signs Egenica for US rail expansion

SilverRail has announced an extension of its partnership with Egencia, the business travel brand of Expedia, Inc.

Egencia has used SilverRail’s API and expertise to supply its corporate customers’ Amtrak bookings in the US since 2010.

Amtrak bookings on the Egencia platform grew steadily in 2015 and continue to exhibit healthy double digit growth in 2016.

Last month, Egencia began rolling out Rail by Egencia, a fully redesigned customer-centric user interface on their global technology platform.

The SilverRail connection allows Egencia customers to easily access features that could be found on Amtrak.com, within their own company-endorsed program.

With features like e-ticketing, corporate negotiated rates, train amenities display and online ticket cancellation, Egencia customers have access to everything they need to organise their rail journeys seamlessly and easily.

“Egencia has a steadfast ethos to provide an incredibly smooth and consumer-like experience to our customers’, whether you’re the traveller or managing a company’s travel program.

“Our partnership with SilverRail allows us to maintain that experience and further improve it with the introduction of Rail by Egencia solution,” said Michael Tribuch, director supplier revenue and strategy at Egencia.

“The partnership has been a success and we anticipate even further adoption among our growing customer base.”
