After many months of hard work – I’m thrilled to announce that our patent-pending search solution, Amadeus Featured ResultsTM, was the runner up in the The Most Innovative Established Company category among a distinguished list of competitors at the PhoCusWright Travel Innovation Summit.
I was honoured to be part of the team that presented our latest innovation on Tuesday alongside Vayama, our customer who is currently testing it live on their website.
Why is Amadeus Featured ResultsTM so revolutionary?
- Instant display of the fastest, cheapest, most popular and sponsored travel options
- No need to sift through hundreds of recommendations – a significant pain point for travellers
- Combines flight search technology and travel business intelligence for a more relevant set of search results the top of the display screen
- Integrates live registration data to flag search results with ´relevance signals´, such as popularity of a given route, number of active reservations on a specific flight, remaining seats, and when the price was last booked among other signals
Full global market availability for this revolutionary solution is scheduled for early 2013.
