DataArt, a technology consulting firm that develops end-to-end solutions, and Travelport (NYSE:TVPT), a leading Travel Commerce Platform, today announced that DataArt has become the latest technology partner to join the Travelport Developer Network.
With access to Travelport’s newest generation of developer tools, content, resources and commercial support, including the Travelport Universal API (uAPI), DataArt will expand its roster of custom, end-to-end app and web services, which include solution design, development, certification and on-going support.
“We’ve been working alongside Travelport for many years and see that the new direction taken by Travelport Developer Network is strategically aligned with the services that DataArt provides to its clients,” said Greg Abbott, SVP of Travel & Hospitality at DataArt.
“The addition of DataArt to the growing Travelport Developer Network allows customers to accelerate app development while taking advantage of the open platform technology, unrivalled travel content, and global reach offered by our Travel Commerce Platform,” said Steve Croft, senior director of Agency Commerce Solutions – Americas for Travelport.
The Developer Network is one piece of Travelport’s growing focus on the digital economy. Last year, Travelport acquired leading mobile apps and solutions provider Mobile Travel Technologies (MTT). Members of the Developer Network, such as DataArt, potentially provide additional ways for Travelport to introduce innovative technologies to the travel industry through seamless integration with Travelport Smartpoint, its industry leading agency desktop technology.
