Amadeus completes migration to SITA automated rules product
Amadeus has completed the implementation of SITA’s automated rules system which allows fares information sent by SITA to be automatically uploaded into the Amadeus system. (4/26/2007)
According to Amadeus, the development will result in airlines and travel agents always having access to the latest, most accurate, price information for airlines distributing their fares via SITA.
Claude Demeestere, Amadeus Director and Head of Product Management, said, “The implementation followed a rigorous assessment of SITA’s automated rules product and we are now fully confident that our customers will have the information they need quickly.”
Reinforcing Amadeus’ reputation for providing quality data, a recent independent global survey of travel agents revealed that Amadeus had 10 percent more `very satisfied’ respondents than its nearest competitor, within the category of `GDS’ fares accuracy and reliability, stated the company.
“As a leader in automated processing and accuracy of data, we are committed to ensuring that all our customers have access to the latest pricing information when they need it,” added Demeestere.
