HBSi Takes Off! Expands Relationship with Flight Centre Ltd. and Adds Liberty Travel and GOGO Worldwide Vacations
HBSi’s connection for all three now certified on Tourism Technology’s Calypso platform
HBSi, an IBS Group company, has expanded its relationship with Brisbane, Australia-based Flight Centre, as well as adding its prominent companies, Liberty Travel and GOGO Worldwide Vacations to its client roster. All three are now live on HBSi's iDemand GatewayTM through an interface with the Calypso software platform from Tourism Technology.
"Our aim is to improve efficiency in all processes, and the HBSi solution will achieve that significantly. Harrahs Resorts and Sandals have been successfully deployed with many other suppliers going live over the coming months" said Mark Benson, General Manager/Vice President of Global Product for Flight Centre USA. "We're encouraging all the hotel brands we book to use HBSi also," Benson added.
"It's a pleasure and validation of the work we do to have a long-time customer such as Flight Centre expand their relationship, especially to this degree," said Greg Berman, chief operating officer of HBSi. "And because we now have an interface to the Calypso platform, we look forward to connecting other Calypso users to our iDemand Gateway."
