Amadeus Technology Enables New-generation Success
Amadeus is a global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry. 

In 2005, Amadeus significantly increased its focus and commitment in this sector with the successful acquisition of Optims, a leading European supplier of IT services to the hospitality industry.

Today, Amadeus offers a complete suite of products and services for the distribution and management of hotel rooms, covering all processes from booking to check out. 

A Proven Track Record in Distribution
Amadeus distributes 63,000 hotels to 75,000 online and offline travel agency locations in 217 countries around the world. Hotel bookings through Amadeus doubled from 2001 to 2005, precisely the most difficult period for the travel industry, and growth during 2005 was close to double digits. This performance is testament to Amadeus’ dedication to securing additional revenues, occupancy and therefore RevPAR to its partner hotels.

The Critical Role of Advanced IT
The Amadeus Hospitality Business Group offers the marketplace a wide range of information technology solutions: property management systems, hotel accounting solutions, point of sales and revenue management systems both for individual properties and central offices. With 6,500 hotel IT customers in more than 70 countries, Amadeus is a worldwide leader in information technology solutions dedicated to the optimization of management methods and revenue in hospitality, catering and tourism.

Bringing advanced revenue management to hoteliers is the Amadeus Hotel Business Group’s first focus. The Amadeus Revenue Management System (RMS)  helps suppliers optimize their revenues while supporting their key business goals of customer retention, sales and marketing efficiencies, and sophisticated revenue management.

The Amadeus RMS is a seamlessly integrated system that hoteliers can leverage to gain real-time visibility into the overall financial performance of their hotels with the ultimate goal of achieving the right price for the right customer at the right time.
Amadeus’ advanced RMS offers hoteliers unique features and benefits:

  • Detailed reporting: This unique tool provides centralized, detailed performance statistics for all or any hotels and customizable reports giving hoteliers quick, accurate and up to date business overviews.
  • Cluster revenue management: This multihotel management system allows the user to consolidate the data, forecast demand and optimize the expected contribution of the different hoteliers.
  • Forecasting: Through the collection of data giving the groups daily activity, this tool applies a series of models to forecast by hotel, type of room, yield class, day of the week, period of the year or by local event. 
  • Deal quotation: This tool recommends the minimum price that can be quoted to optimize profits.  This bid-price is calculated by considering the group or hotel forecasts based on length of stay, type of demand and the demand needs and characteristics.

A New Era in Hotel Distribution
Amadeus is also pioneering the development of a new generation hotel distribution platform, a major strategic project to ignite a new era in hotel distribution. Scheduled to roll out in 2007, the platform will combine in one, integrated solution property reservations, central reservations, channel management, revenue management and global distribution through offline and online channels.
