Amadeus Boosts Hospitality Accommodation Content From China Via New Partnership With Shiji
This partnership will enable travel agents across Amadeus’ distribution network to access Shiji’s hotel accommodation options and provide agents with new hospitality content that is not made available yet on other global distribution systems
With The People’s Republic of China seeing strong domestic recovery, Shiji Group, China's leading hotel information systems player, has partnered with global travel technology company Amadeus to provide new content from Chinese hotels & chains to the Amadeus Travel Platform. This partnership will benefit an increasing number of travel agents who are looking for richer hotel accommodation options in China.
This partnership will enable travel agents across Amadeus’ distribution network to access Shiji’s hotel accommodation options and provide agents with new hospitality content that is not made available yet on other global distribution systems.
"Many hotels in China run on Shiji’s suite of solutions, from PMS, Channel Management, CRS, to our back-office solutions. One thing that never changes is that our hotel customers are always looking for broader, high quality distribution.” says Anson Lau, Managing Director, Shiji Distribution Solutions. "Our partnership with Amadeus will open up a whole new global hospitality distribution network to our hotel customers, empowering them to grow both their retail & corporate business globally."
The Amadeus Travel Platform enables airlines, hotels, car rental companies to provide their content to the world’s largest global network of travel sellers and corporations, so that travelers can shop, and book travel the way they want. The Travel Platform is built on open systems, processing 100,000+ end-user transactions per second at peak and harnesses intelligent use of data by artificial and machine learning. End-user transactions can include anything from a low fare search to a credit card authorization request.
"We are happy to be partnering with Shiji, giving the reach the company requires to make its content available to more travel agents who are looking to make bookings in China," adds Malcolm Cheong, General Manager, Hospitality, China, Amadeus. "By providing new content from Shiji’s portfolio of Chinese hotels & chains on our Travel Platform, we are enriching the content available and ensuring our travel sellers have a more robust choice of hotel accommodations to offer their customers. As the journey of rebuilding travel begins across the world, our partnership with Shiji will be delivering stress-free traveler experiences that can unlock recovery and growth."
