Travel News Asia Monday, 29 May 2006

Amadeus and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) have signed an agreement certifying CWT as a global reseller of Amadeus e-Travel Management, a widely deployed online booking solution for global managed travel.

Amadeus e-Travel Management will complement CWTs proprietary online booking tool CWT Horizon, which is available in the United States and Canada.

Thanks to its quick and easy booking process, Amadeus e-Travel Management can help drive online adoption, increase program compliance and reduce total travel spend. Available in 12 languages, the global platform is easily adapted to local needs and connects to multiple global distribution systems for air, car and hotel reservations, while linking to key national railway systems and low-cost carriers.

CWT clients benefit from the seamless integration of Amadeus e-Travel Management with proprietary CWT applications, including the CWT Travel Portal; CWT Portrait, the companys profile management tool; and CWT Harp, CWTs centralized hotel database. By dealing directly with CWT, clients who choose Amadeus e-Travel Management will also benefit from working with a single contact, as well as preferential pricing. 

Hubert Joly, president and chief executive officer of CWT, said, Companies can save up to 10% of their total travel budget by adopting online booking. Teaming up with Amadeus reflects our commitment to deliver great value to our clients by being the most effective travel management consulting company and integrator of leading-edge technology solutions. To that end, CWTs expertise in online implementation and optimization, coupled with the reliability and ease of use of an online booking tool like Amadeus e-Travel Management, allow us to drive rapid online adoption on behalf of our clients. Mr. Joly also highlighted the importance of providing complementary online and full-service capabilities. Amadeus global technology offering allows us to do just that, he said.

As a leading player in the business travel world, CWT has driven the online booking trend in a most significant way, said Ian Wheeler, Vice President of Marketing for Amadeus. The benefits of online business travel management are most clearly felt when the technology is closely integrated with professional travel management services. With this new agreement, CWT can continue to offer seamless travel management programs on top of Amadeus online booking technology.
