Rail search and booking technology specialist SilverRail has announced a new partnership with US-based technology firm nuTravel.
NuTravel is now able to connect its corporate travel customers to VIA Rail content.
The API SilverCore API, SilverAPI, is designed to simply the complexity involved in selling rail by providing a single, integrated service for shopping, booking, and purchasing tickets; regardless of rail carrier or global market.
VIA Rail is nuTravel’s first connection to SilverCore, which enables customers to search and book rail journeys in Canada alongside searches for flights.
Damar Christopher, nuTravel’s vice president, product and customer solutions, said: “NuTravel is absolutely dedicated to delivering the best content for our customers.
“We believe our collaboration with SilverRail to provide VIA Rail content epitomises this, and its ground-breaking technology platform furthers our open integration strategy of partnering with technology leaders in the industry.
“As a recognised innovator in corporate travel, we are committed to continuing to develop our integration with SilverRail so that we can further improve the traveller’s corporate booking experience.”
Bob Allen, US director of account management at SilverRail, added: “Over 35 carriers are connected via our SilverCore technology and now with nuTravel we can offer its corporate travel customers the opportunity to see rail content alongside air information for the first time.”
