Amadeus, a global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry, announced a new direct connection between the Amadeus PMS and Expedia.

The initiative is part of Amadeus’ ongoing commitment to open up new sales channels to the hotel industry. Nearly 32.5 million potential guests visit Expedia sites every month and in 2007 Expedia sold travel products and services worth more than $17 billion.  The solution allows hotels to sell their rooms on Expedia direct from their Amadeus PMS.

Amadeus PMS now provides hotels with a single point from which they can manage their rates, availability and inventory on Expedia. This allows them to easily adjust room availability and pricing according to demand, and enables the use of dynamic pricing to optimize rate management and occupancy levels. 6,700 hotels in 75 countries currently use the Amadeus PMS.     

Richard Kürzl, head of PMS division, Amadeus Hospitality Business Group said, “We are seeing property management systems converging with distribution, and distribution channels proliferating. In this environment, it makes sense for independent hotels and smaller chains to manage their distribution directly from the PMS. This solution gives them that facility and opens up one of the largest distribution channels for them.”
