Amadeus partners with CWT to bring Cytric Easy to corporate clients

CWT is among the first global business TMC to offer solution

Travel technology provider and GDS Amadeus has revealed its partnership with global business travel management company CWT to grow its presence in the United States corporate travel management market.

The global business travel management company will be among the first to debut the solution, working in close collaboration with Amadeus to expand its reach.  

Cytric Easy is embedded in Microsoft 365, to aid the experience of planning and booking business travel "more fluid".

The ability to book flights or rail trips and share them with colleagues without leaving everyday collaborative applications, such as Microsoft Teams, helps reduce disruption in the workday and increase productivity. 

With functionalities like Share my transfer, travellers can save on costs and minimise impact on the environment. 

Through Cytric Easy, travel managers can choose to display content, including NDC, from content aggregators or direct suppliers to ensure travellers find the right option respecting their travel policy, every time. 

CWT was an early adopter of NDC-ready solutions and continues to be an industry leader in this space. 

Dale Eastlund, vice president, supply chain partners of CWT, said: “We are focused on creating a simple, efficient, and personalized business travel experience. 

"Offering our customers greater choice through our myCWT platform remains central to our value proposition, and so we are pleased to partner with Amadeus in bringing Cytric Easy to a global audience.” 

Paul de Villiers, SVP global business travel accounts of Amadeus, said: “We are delighted to partner with CWT to bring Cytric Easy to a growing audience. 

"The pioneering solution lets corporate travel managers keep control of spend, while meeting the needs of business travelers. 

"Cytric Easy offers access to unrivalled inventory on an easy-to-use online platform, while using a robust policy engine to drive compliance and ensure the best booking decisions. 

"Users can book the best rates in seconds, deliver a seamless online experience, and create a booking process that drives compliance," he said.
