Travel technology provider Amadeus has signed a global strategic partnership with mobile services integrator conTgo. The partnership will see Amadeus integrate conTgo products into its own services.

The deal will enable the Amadeus Mobile Travel Assistant solution to be made instantly available to all travel management companies and corporations that use Amadeus technology to book and manage their corporate travel.

Mobile Travel Assistant distributes relevant travel information directly to travellers’ mobile phones at the time they need it. This includes ground transportation and hotel details and any location-specific information identified by the traveller’s employer or travel management company.

Albert Pozo, director of multinational business and corporate travel for Amadeus, said: “Corporations and TMCs require technology that considers duty of care to staff, corporate travel policy restrictions and cost saving objectives. Mobile Travel Assistant is the clear industry leader – its system is tried and tested and works faultlessly worldwide."

"Furthermore, conTgo’s outstanding performance during disruption events such as the volcanic ash cloud crisis, the December snow chaos and the Queensland flooding is a strong sign of its bandwidth and capability to deliver superior service to our joint customers.”
