Amadeus Upgrades Agency Internet Technology

Amadeus says it is close to completing a project that will upgrade travel agencies to browser-based, Internet technology. Ninety-nine percent of Amadeus' agencies now connect to its reservation system over an Internet connection, and more than 81 percent of the agency points-of-sale operate the flagship, browser-based Amadeus Selling Platform (Vista). As a new generation of Web-savvy professionals enters the industry, Amadeus has accelerated the upgrade of hundreds of thousands of travel agency points-of-sale to the advanced selling platform. Amadeus upgrades more than 7,000 points of sale each month and recently launched the latest version—Selling Platform (Vista) 2.3—with graphical interface for service fee calculation with Amadeus Service Fee Manager and enhanced central ticketing functionality. Selling Platform allows agents to choose how they work fastest—with both cryptic and graphical modes—and is updated automatically over the Internet. The scalable solution in its simplest form is suitable for small agencies, yet can be customized to suit larger operations as well. Visit [www.amadeus.com].
