Amadeus has released version 13.2 of its flagship e-Travel Management solution, the self-booking tool for corporations. The new version, which is available globally, includes a range of enhanced features, including a completely revamped hotel shopping module that uses a wholly new Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The interface, which takes advantage of a new and central mapping system based on Microsoft BING maps, allows the user to visualize, search and navigate through a range of hotel selections, comparing locations, amenities, policy compliance, availability and prices. It also provides a ‘BookNow!’ feature that instantly adds the hotel to the traveler’s itinerary. It further benefits from using the same ‘Hotel Shopper’ technology as Amadeus Hotels Plus.
The updated version of the Amadeus e-Travel Management solution also unveils a new multi-availability feature, providing the opportunity to preview different rooms available in a given hotel. The availability is displayed directly, meaning the user can avoid navigating to the single availability screen first, streamlining the entire process.
Furthermore, additional filters have been installed to the interface in order to help users narrow down their choice more quickly, allowing them to get the best deal possible. The whole booking process has also been sped up from start to finish; with more data fields pre-filled automatically.
