Amadeus announced that it will implement its Cytric travel and expense management solutions through two new and expanded partnerships with Campbell Travel and Gant Travel. The partnerships include:
Campbell Travel and Amadeus have partnered to further enhance efficiency and corporate travel offerings through the Amadeus Travel Platform and Cytric Easy by Amadeus. The collaboration will enable Campbell Travel to enhance corporate travel offerings, in addition to becoming a reseller for the Amadeus Cytric portfolio.
Gant Travel and Amadeus have expanded their partnership to incorporate Cytric Easy into the existing agreement. By incorporating Cytric Easy solutions, Gant Travel will allow corporate customers instant access to an extensive range of fares. Not only will this make Gant Travel the first travel management company (TMC) to offer the integrated end-to-end solution to its customers, according to the announcement, but the partnership also ensures a seamless experience for corporate travelers.
Following the signing, according to the announcement, Indiana-based Gant Travel will be able to offer customers the benefit of having all daily travel planning tools in one workspace. Using the Cytric Easy integration with Microsoft, the solution offers a single location to search, compare or book a hotel, flight or car rental – without ever leaving Microsoft Teams. Users will have the ability to share trip information, enabling better connections and collaborations in teams.
Patrick Linnihan, CEO of Gant Travel, said: “We are excited to be able to offer Cytric by Amadeus to our customers, allowing us to provide an advanced future proof technological solution.”
The integration, he said, will provide corporate customers with instant access to the widest range of fares, without the need to worry about how the content has been sourced, be it through New Distribution Capability (NDC) or legacy channels.
At the same time, following the announcement of a strategic partnership between Cytric by Amadeus and Emburse, an expense management platform, Gant will be able to offer clients a “seamless” experience for corporate travelers from trip planning and booking, through to expense reporting, reconciliation, reimbursements and spend analytics.
