MIAMI — Amadeus is launching a new version and enhanced features for its Amadeus e-Power online travel booking solution in North America.
A fully customizable, high performance and easy-to-use Internet booking engine, Amadeus e-Power is the only turnkey solution that enables travel professionals to quickly and easily exploit the full power of the web, while also offering customization and integration capabilities along with the support of an experienced travel technology partner, says the firm.
This latest rollout of Amadeus e-Power enables travel professionals to develop additional revenue sources and better serve their customers 24/7 while eliminating expensive technology investments and minimizing operational and maintenance costs.
“We’ve taken our flagship Amadeus e-Power solution used by travel professionals around the globe and made it even better. This is part of our ongoing commitment to developing the tools that help increase opportunity and success for our customers, including enabling them grow their revenue and optimally serve their customers,” said Robert Buckman, head of Product Management for Amadeus North America.
Amadeus e-Power is designed for any travel company considering entering the online world or looking to expand its current presence, whether it is a small or midsize travel agency looking for a simple e-commerce solution or a large agency or consolidator seeking a more comprehensive, customizable solution.
Built upon Amadeus’ travel content and technology platform, Amadeus e-Power includes the same low fare search functionality used by some of today’s leading online travel companies. Amadeus e-Power also gives users access to a wide range of distribution content through one single view creating cross-selling opportunities across air, hotels and car.
Amadeus e-Power offers the building blocks to help enable increases in agents’ sales revenues and cross selling, including negotiated fares, packaging features and service fees, among others. New enhancements include quicker search and booking flows; flight & hotel packaging functionality; a ‘pinand compare’ feature for air, car and hotel searches; improved usability and new user interface customization tools. The enhanced version can also be integrated within any business’ existing website, regardless of size and complexity, to help advance their online business strategy.
Three versions of Amadeus e-Power are now available in the U.S. and Canada:
- Amadeus e-Power – Starter package: This new package is ideal for single site, small- and medium-sized agencies. This version delivers fast results for schedule- and fare-driven air search. It also enables air and hotel searches to be combined in one package, delivers detailed hotel and car searches, and enables service markups to be easily added.
- Amadeus e-Power – Premium package: This advanced, highly customizable solution is best suited for medium to large-sized online travel agencies. In addition to the Starter package features, it enables travel professionals to generate more bookings with promotions, offers an improved graphical, user experience and is highly configurable to specific business logic.
- Amadeus e-Power Consolidator: This offering is designed specifically for the needs of consolidators, consortia and distributors with a sales network of mostly remote sub-agents selling, advising and servicing both leisure and business travellers.
