ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla., (January 6, 2010) Becoming the first and only travel company to launch a full XML platform, Tourico Holidays now offers its clients seamless access to multiple products across thousands of vacation destinations around the world. Unlike other travel providers, Tourico Holidays’ clients now enjoy access via XML to everything the company offers: more than 16,000 hotels, 3,300 activities, 11 cruise lines and four car-rental companies.

“The XML full upgrade is a perfect example of how Tourico Holidays continually seeks to offer our customers the latest technology and widest product selection,” said Amir Kalmar, Chief Marketing Officer of Travel Holdings, Inc., parent company of Tourico Holidays. “We now provide more than 600 global clients with inventory through XML connectivity.”

In order to make sure that every migration to their new XML platform is as smooth as possible, Tourico Holidays is providing a dedicated team of 14 specialists, who will serve as a single point of contact throughout the entirety of a client site’s development cycle, including development, testing, production, and optimizations. Once a site is up and running, the team of specialists will then provide 24/7 account management support at no additional cost.

“A full XML platform offers advantages that other kinds of technology simply can’t,” said Argov. “Speed, scalability, the modularity needed to bind to any existing system – this technology makes working with Tourico Holidays easier than ever.”
