i:FAO wählt SilverRail zum Ausbau seines weltweiten Angebots für Bahnreisen

8 November 2012 - i:FAO, der Entwickler von cytric, Europas meist genutzter Software zur Planung, Buchung, Kostenabrechnung und Verwaltung von Geschäftsreisen gab eine neue Partnerschaft mit SilverRail Technologies bekannt, wodurch i:FAO seinen weltweiten Geschäftskunden eine länderübergreifende Buchung und Ticketausstellung im Bahnbereich anbieten kann.

Durch das Verwenden der SilverRail Technologie ist i:FAO in der Lage, seinen mehr als 3.200 Geschäftskunden und 50 Vertriebspartnern über sein Online-Buchungsystem cytric voll integrierte Preisermittlung, Verfügbarkeit und Ticketausstellung zu bieten. Diese Partnerschaft mit SilverRail erweitert die Abdeckung der weltweiten Bahnmärkte durch cytric und fügt dem bestehenden Angebot Amtrak (Vereinigte Staaten), Via Rail (Kanada) und SJ (Schweden) hinzu; weitere Bahnanbieter werden im Laufe des Jahres 2013 folgen.

Das ständig wachsende Angebot an Hochgeschwindigkeitszügen, gesteigertes Umweltbewusstsein beim Reisen und die Deregulierung der Branche haben den Personenbahnverkehr zum dynamischsten und am schnellsten wachsenden Sektor der Reiseindustrie gemacht. i:FAO wird den Anforderungen der Reisemanager durch das Anbieten einer voll integrierten Lösung gerecht, die Buchungseffizienz, integrierte Daten zum Tracking der Reisenden und Marketing-Intelligenz beinhaltet, alles in Kombination mit einem umfassenden Reisekostenmanagement. „Reisende bevorzugen Bahnreisen für Kurzstrecken, weil sie komfortabler und praktischer sind, eine höhere Produktivität zulassen und auch ökologische Vorteile haben," sagt Cameron Jones, Vizepräsident des Vertriebs von SilverRail.

i:FAO fand SilverRail besonders attraktiv, weil dessen weltweite Bahnplattform SilverCore die Integration einer einzigen Technologie für den Zugang zu mehreren Bahnbetreibern gestattet, wodurch die Notwendigkeit der Integration verschiedener Technologien und die daraus folgende Verwaltung mehrerer Technologiebeziehungen vermieden wird.

„SilverRail gab uns die großartige Möglichkeit, schrittweise weitere Bahnmärkte auf schnelle und effiziente Art zu cytric hinzuzufügen. Bahnfahren ist weiterhin ein Schwerpunkt für unsere Kunden und wir erweitern unser Bahnangebot kontinuierlich, um diese Nachfrage zu befriedigen," sagt Louis Arnitz, der CEO von i:FAO.

„Wir sind über die Zusammenarbeit mit i:FAO, einem führenden und innovativen Unternehmen im Bereich der Geschäftsreisen begeistert," sagt Cameron Jones. „Bei SilverRail vereinfachen wir den komplexen Prozess der Bahnticketausstellung und geben damit i:FAO die Möglichkeit, sein Geschäft auf neue Märkte und zu viel geringeren Kosten auszuweiten. Unsere globale Partnerschaft mit i:FAO unterstreicht, dass Geschäftsreisemanager die Bedürfnisse ihrer Kunden durch die Verwendung von marktführender Technologie erfüllen können."

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
