Capitalising on the rapidly growing digital economy, Travelport, a travel commerce platform offering distribution, technology, payment and other solutions to the global travel industry, has shed light on a new organisation, Travelport Digital.
The all-new Travelport Digital organisation is set to optimise the investments that the company has made into various digital assets and products over the last few years with the aim of growing its range of digital services. The formation of the function builds on Travelport’s acquisition last year of MTT, a provider of mobile and digital solutions to the travel industry, as well as its investment in Locomote, a corporate travel management system.
Chief commercial officer, Travelport, Stephen Shurrock remarked on the news: “Travelport Digital will play an important role as we look to develop a comprehensive range of digital products and services with today’s ever-connected, mobile-savvy customers in mind. We know we need to do this to support the growth plans of our OTA, travel agency, corporate and travel content provider customers.”
