Madrid-headquartered travel solutions firm Amadeus has integrated its Amadeus Travel Office Manager (ATOM) with Sage Malaysia's back office accounting software - Sage 50.
Amadeus Asia Pacific vice president, customer solutions group, Bruno des Fontaines, said this "first-of-a-kind integration in the industry" offers travel agencies a complete and fully automated office system for operational efficiency.
"We've seen ATOM take off with such success in Asia Pacific and are pleased to advance our offering for our customers," said des Fontaines. "From the start, we designed ATOM to meet the specific needs of our Asia Pacific travel agency customers, who often told us they lacked adequate mid-office systems."
"With the Sage integration, we further address their needs by offering a complete end-to-end solution that will help them achieve even greater levels of efficiency and profits," he said, adding that ATOM is a mid-office solution that has been developed specifically for travel agencies in the Asia Pacific region.
ATOM is a web-based platform that allows travel professionals to access the system anytime, anywhere, he said. "It gives travel agencies easy control over booking data by automatically importing passenger information (Passenger name, Routing, Ticket Number and Fares) directly from the Amadeus Selling Platform. Sage completes the accounting process, managing the general ledger and generating financial documents in a timely and efficient manner."
Sage Software managing director, Michael Cho, said: "We are pleased to work with Amadeus, who like us, are committed to offering best-in-class solutions to help customers maintain business leadership."
"The integrated ATOM and Sage 50 solution has saved us time spent on operational tasks and allowed us to focus more on delivering better service to our customers, ultimately helping to increase our profits," commented Chin Wai Chee, director of YHH Travel. "It is a real enabler of our business and we couldn't be more pleased with the solution."
