Amadeus has partnered with Cornerstone Information Systems, a leader in reservation management and business intelligence technology, to help business travel agents and corporate travel managers worldwide improve their overall operations.

The new platform covers the automation of the lengthy and costly manual aspects of the reservation management process, and advanced reporting and analytical technology to help the industry make smarter decisions. In the near future, there are also plans to extend the partnership and technology to leisure travel agents and online travel agencies.

Amadeus will become an official global distributor of two of Cornerstones most effective solutions that will help travel agents save time, money and improve the quality of their data reporting and their reservations. Availability will be decided on a market by market basis:

 Amadeus iBank: The solution provides the agency or corporation with extractable reports to manage their travel programme efficiently and with all the necessary information to make intelligent decisions.

 Amadeus iQCX: A reservation management and agency process automation. This hosted solution automates routine tasks performed by travel agents thereby giving them the possibility to dedicate more time to serve their clients and improving the overall quality of their reservations.

Michael Marx, Head of Corporate Travel, Lufthansa City Center said, A key part of Lufthansa City Centers growth strategy is to build and implement our own technology platform which can be modified globally for the individual needs of our clients. It is a crucial requirement to deliver highly efficient corporate travel management to serve multinational accounts. Given our long relationship with Amadeus, we looked to them as a key strategic partner for both GDS and technology applications, and in 2010 we partnered with Cornerstone to help us implement the data management side of our global expansion strategy. We always saw the natural synergies between these two companies, and with the announcement of their partnership, we are more convinced than ever that we made the right choice. Today more and more companies choose Lufthansa City Center as their efficient travel management partner, delivering tailor made solutions. We are excited about the opportunities this relationship with Amadeus and Cornerstone holds for our business and, more importantly, for our customers.
