Amadeus Hotels
Hotel IT Solutions

Amadeus works in partnership with hoteliers to build IT solutions for next-generation hotel management systems focused on delivering a single view of rates, inventory, reservations, content and guest information plus enhanced distribution and merchandising tools. This single view of the guest and all operations helps to remove operational complexity. Built to enable hotel business and brand transformation, Amadeus’ solutions are based on open technology and offered as a software-as-a-service model (SaaS) which is less expensive and more flexible than traditional solutions for hoteliers. Amadeus’ solutions allow hoteliers to be more agile in delivering innovative guest services, generating new revenues and responding to market changes in order to succeed in today's highly competitive marketplace.

Hotel Distribution
Complexity continues to define the hotels sector – both the fragmentation of the selling channel as well as changing guest preferences driven by major geographic shifts and attitudes. Amadeus brings value to both the hotelier and the seller by providing the content and the technology to meet the needs of today’s guests. By working in partnership with hoteliers, Amadeus is able to ensure travel agents and travel management companies remain relevant by giving them what they require to deliver customer value when it comes to hotels. The key to Amadeus' advantage is having visibility of the total spectrum – hotelier, seller and guest – which allows it to drive complexity out of the industry, a key requirement to ensure innovation flourishes.
Amadeus connects some 300 of the world’s leading hotel providers with its global community of travel agencies. Via its various hotel reservation channels and solutions, Amadeus gives hoteliers the ability to target and sell their rooms and rates to business and leisure travelers globally. In addition, Amadeus offers high-value marketing and promotional solutions and services for hotels to reach the right booker with the right offer at the right time. Amadeus give its booking customers access to an accumulated inventory of more than 300,000 hotels via custom-built reservation applications which are speedy, efficient and tailored to the way its business partners operate.
