Amadeus believes the future of travel requires Amadeus and its customers and partners to work together to deliver a travel experience which will be connected, personalized and sustainable. Amadeus' purpose is to shape this future of travel in collaboration with its customers and other industry players.

Amadeus Hotel IT
Amadeus offers solutions for next-generation hotel management focused on delivering a single view of rates, inventory, reservations, content and guest information, plus enhanced distribution and merchandising tools. Built to enable hotel business and brand transformation, its 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 2013 Amadeus reinforced its vision and position in the hotel IT business with the acquisition of United States-based Newmarket International.

Amadeus 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 possibility 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 gives its booking customers access to 240,000+ unique hotel properties* and with 680,000+ hotel shopping options, via custom-built reservation applications which are efficient, effective and tailored to the way Amadeus’ business partners operate.
*Unique properties gives an estimate of the total number of individual properties that are being distributed across all channels/providers.
