Data specialist Travelogix has agreed a three-year deal with Switzerland-based Kuoni Business Travel – the company’s first client in the Swiss market.
UK-based Travelogix will provide its data management and reporting platform Analytix to Kuoni Business Travel, which is part of the DER Touristik group of travel companies.
Andreas Schneider, head of Kuoni Business Travel, said: “The complexity of collecting and evaluating all data sources in the modern travel world and providing a reliable analysis for our customers and for our professional account management requires a reliable partner like Travelogix for the future.”
“For our customers, this means even better data and clear advantages in purchasing and negotiations with service providers and in the timely management of travel.”
The agreement will include the development of a customised data handler to automate the extraction and integration of DER Touristik’s data into the Analytix platform to provide Kuoni and its corporate clients with on-demand data insights.
Chris Lewis, founder and CEO of Travelogix, said that moving into Switzerland – the company’s ninth market – was a new “milestone”.
“We’re thrilled that we have been entrusted with the data and reporting needs of such a well-known name from the travel industry,” added Lewis.
