ATLANTA – August 3, 2010 – AgentWare, Inc, a leader in providing global non-GDS carrier content to the travel industry, and SilverRail, a leader in providing rail supplier content, today announced a partnership that will enable AgentWare customers and partners to access, search, price and book Amtrak, UK Rail, and high-speed European rail content segments.
“We are very excited about what this partnership brings to our customers” says Gary Lagarde, AgentWare CEO. “Our customers will not only be able to access our very large portfolio of non-GDS carrier content but will now have access to all global rail content through SilverRail as well. This is a key differentiator for customers that are increasingly requesting access to both air and rail content in a single search.”
“It’s simply a matter of one plus one equaling three,” adds Lagarde, “We are now in a position to offer our customers access to a much wider range of content and increase the value proposition of AgentWare and SilverRail core competencies across a wide customer base. Our collective content and technology allows us to bring new ways of combining travel segments to satisfy customer requirements.”
“SilverRail has been looking for innovative ways to enable distribution of rail content and the partnership with AgentWare just makes a lot of sense” says Aaron Gowell, SilverRail CEO. “AgentWare’s broad business reach creates significant distribution opportunities for rail suppliers with whom SilverRail connects throughout Europe. By the end of this year we’ll be connected with several of the high speed train lines across Europe with direct connections to several suppliers”
Adds Gowell, “Most people are not aware that rail is experiencing a global transformation, driven in large part by high-speed train innovation, which now competes directly with air travel in Europe. Partnerships like AgentWare allow high-speed carriers to sell their products in multiple countries, in multiple currencies – all through a single connection.”
