Global Airline Employee Travel Platform Selects Leonardo’s Technology to Power its Travel Websites
Toronto, Canada and Grapevine, Texas – January 8, 2015 – Leonardo Worldwide Corporation today announced that ID90 Travel, the leading Airline Employee Travel portal providing over 22 million airline employees and eligible members with exclusive travel discounts, has selected Leonardo technologies to source, manage and display visual content and multimedia for hotels listed on its travel websites: ID90travel.com, trebeca.com, and trebecatravel.com.
Engaging Multi-Media Display
ID90 websites will have direct connectivity to access Leonardo’s database of 1.5 million hotel images, 360 tours and videos by embedding Leonardo’s VPowered Multi-Media Galleries within each hotel’s details page.
Previously, ID90 Travel did not have consistent access to high quality hotel images for their global inventory of more than 200,000 hotels. Now, ID90 Travel websites will provide travel shoppers with more immersive visual experiences as they research and book hotels. ID90 will also receive the added benefit of near real time updates to visual content due to direct connectivity of their VPowered galleries within the VScape database.
Hotel chains subscribing to Leonardo’s VScape Digital Asset Management System with full distribution connectivity will now manage their hotels’ images on ID90 through VScape and can make changes, additions and deletions to images on their websites in near real time.
Hotel properties subscribing to Vizlly Multi-Channel or DMS+ will have the added benefit of being able to publish specific multi-media stories to ID90 websites through their publishing tool in Vizlly.
ID90 Travel is the global leader in non-revenue travel solutions for airlines and their employees, providing airlines around the globe with a SaaS platform that automates and reduces costs associated with airline employee travel; as well as a comprehensive solution for airline employees and eligible travel members, such as discount rates on hotels, car rentals, cruises, trip insurance and more. Their newly relaunched suite of SaaS mobile and desktop travel products is revolutionizing the way more than 22 million airline employees and members plan and book travel.
With ID90 Travel websites in the VNetwork, the most extensive visual media syndication network in the global travel industry, hotels have the opportunity to reach and engage ID90 Travel’s 22 million travelers with a more visual story.
“Consumers today expect websites to deliver immersive visual experiences. Travel shoppers crave rich visual content when they embark on their travel shopping journey and the demand for rich media, such as virtual tours and videos, is increasing. By adopting Leonardo’s multi-media display technology, ID90 Travel is providing travel shoppers with a more visually compelling online experience,” says John McAuliffe, Leonardo’s President.
“In order to maintain our position as the global leader in non-revenue travel solutions for airlines and their employees, we need to provide our customers with a richer, more enhanced online travel shopping experience.
