Amadeus is to become the official global distributor of two business travel solutions by US-based Cornerstone Information Systems.
The deal will initially see Amadeus market two products covering business intelligence reporting and booking management and agency process automation.
Amadeus says there are plans to extend the partnership and technology to leisure agents and online travel agencies.
Amadeus multinational business and corporate travel vice president Albert Pozo said: “Business travel agents and travel managers urgently need to implement smart technology to improve the time-consuming and costly manual aspects of the reservation management process, as well as gain access to relevant information to manage and measure travel programmes more effectively.”
The partnership with Cornerstone will provide solutions that “effectively address these issues”.
Cornerstone president and CEO Mat Orrego added: “Amadeus’s global reach and industry position as travel technology leader, allows us to serve and adapt to our international customers exceptionally well.
“By leveraging Amadeus’ sales and service resources we can allocate more resources toward the improvement of existing technology and the creation of new platforms and applications for the corporate travel market.”
