Amadeus has developed a new platform enabling
car providers to exchange 100% of their messages using Open Travel
Alliance XML technology, making data exchange far easier than it
ever was before.
Amadeus Cars was already distributing
content from its car rental partners to offline and online travel
agencies using XML. Now, Amadeus can additionally exchange OTA XML
messages with car rental companies, connecting them to their
customers across the complete distribution chain using XML
This platform has the following
100% seamless content: car
providers can exchange all business information using XML
messaging, improving data quality, accuracy and timeliness.
Speed to market: Amadeus enhancements can be
adopted faster by car providers thanks to the same
interoperability language between Amadeus and car companies.
Cost savings: XML messaging is easier to
program and maintain as well as having widespread use amongst
suppliers and distributors.
Charles A. Coniglio,
VP e-Commerce & Global Distribution, Dollar Thrifty Automotive
Group (DTAG), Inc. said, “through Amadeus’s XML platform, we
are now able to transmit all our content - rates and availability,
plus location list and policy information – through one interface.
In addition, as Amadeus rolls-out new functionalities, we can
implement them quickly and easily thanks to the same XML messaging
exchange between Amadeus and ourselves. XML is the language of the
future and DTAG are delighted to be a part of it.”
