Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 7 July 2009

Travelport has entered into a strategic relationship with PSP International to form a joint venture company to provide state-of-the-art innovative and integrated payment solutions tailored specifically for the travel industry. The joint venture, in which Travelport holds a majority stake, was completed on June 24, 2009.

The joint venture will be branded “eNett, A Joint Venture with Travelport”. It leverages the existing successful payment and settlement capabilities already established by PSP International in the Pacific region with Travelport’s worldwide travel product distribution capabilities and significant airline, rail operator, hotel and car rental relationships. The joint venture also leverages Travelport’s strong position with the on and offline travel agency community and its global brand in the sector. The two companies have enjoyed a strong commercial relationship since 2003.

The eNett suite of products will enable automated payments, settlement and reporting between travel agencies and travel product suppliers, supporting debit cards and other increasingly relevant alternative forms of payment which are not well supported today.

 It will enable non traditional players in the travel industry, such as low cost carriers (LCCs), who desire to distribute their products through the travel trade, to be able to offer tailored credit and settlement terms.

 eNett is also working on solutions for corporate travel such as automated hotel bill back generation that will save travel management companies (TMCs) and the corporations they service, both time and money.

“One of Travelport’s stated goals is to build adjacent businesses that will help power our clients’ success,” said Gordon Wilson, President & CEO,Travelport GDS. “The payment and settlement business is a multi-billion US dollar industry and with eNett's innovative suite of payment and settlement solutions, we believe we can take out some of the inefficiencies that currently exist today. Moreover, the joint venture will meet customers’ desire for tailored payment solutions with a stronger focus on cost, reduced risk and faster settlement across the broadest array of travel products.”

The eNett joint venture will have four designated Travelport board members, including the Chairman, Keith Woodcock, Senior Vice President New Business Development of Travelport GDS. Two PSP directors will serve on the joint venture board - leading payment expert, Rob Bishop, will join the joint venture as Executive Director, while PSP founder Anthony Hynes will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer.

“eNett’s scope and depth go well beyond what is currently available in the marketplace,” said eNett newly appointed Executive Director, Rob Bishop. “The eNett joint venture helps travel customers simplify their businesses by providing payment solutions that supports both air and non-air transactions. Other payment and settlement systems generally do one or the other but not both.”
