Published: 08 Sep 2008: STA Travel´s UK trade arm has chosen Wandrian´s technology solutions for booking train travel online.
In 2007, Wandrian launched STAUSA.RailAgent.com, a solution for the US trade branches of STA Travel. And now, Wandrian, which develops technology solutions that simplify the planning and purchase of train travel, has extended its working relationship with STA Travel into the UK market with the launch of STAUK.RailAgent.com.
Ian Swain, product director, STA Travel UK, said, "As high speed train travel develops across Europe and the rest of the world, it is becoming a more cost-effective, hassle free and green alternative to other forms of transportation. It is important that our agents can easily obtain information and products for our customers for all train travel services worldwide, and Wandrian´s technology product meets our requirements for coverage, value and speed of processing."
Wandrian president and CEO Bret Gordon said Wandrian´s technology is flexible enough to also cater to small and mid-sized suppliers and distributors of train travel and related services.
In addition to STA Travel, Wandrian´s solutions are used by the likes of Eurail and Amtrak.
