BeNe Rail International to outsource its rail distribution system to Amadeus with a community-based model to take European rail travel to the next level.
An international rail distribution system for BeNe Rail
BeNe Rail International (BeNe RI), Dutch Railways, NS, Belgian Railways, SNCB and CFL: Luxembourg Railways, is building together with us a new rail community IT platform. Thanks to a community-based model, the platform proposes a solution to cover all end-to-end processes for European rail travel.
Amadeus’ Data Centre in Erding (Germany) is responsible for running and hosting the platform, giving BeNe RI numerous advantages:
- Full control of its distribution strategies and channels.
- Increased flexibility and performance
- Enhanced rail customer satisfaction.
The platform, that will be rolled out across BeNe RI over several phases during the next few years, aims to provide a community model, whereby all railways share an integrated hosting platform and have access to the same functionality levels, both for multichannel distribution as for carrier hosting.
All members can take advantage of our new development, as part of our on-going commitment to the IT platform evolution. The rail community IT platform is ready for more railways globally to join and outsource their distribution and IT.
“Amadeus’ rail community IT platform will strengthen our rail distribution channels with our partners rail content. Our customers will be able to rely on a single convenient rail booking solution. This will also enable us to fine-tune our service offering and improve travelers’ satisfaction.” Arnold De Brauwer, President, BeNe RI
