Carlson Wagonlit Travel Teams Up With GetThere for Online Corporate Travel Reservation System

PARIS & SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 1, 2006–Carlson
Wagonlit Travel (CWT) signed a reseller agreement with GetThere to
offer clients worldwide enhanced flexibility in their choice of online
booking systems, the travel management company announced today. The
GetThere online corporate travel reservation system is available to
CWT clients in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America
and is offered in eight languages. The GetThere system complements
CWT’s proprietary online booking tool CWT Horizon, which is available
in the United States and Canada.

Leading the online booking trend and driving process optimization
worldwide are not only strategic priorities for CWT, but essential
levers for effective travel management, according to Hubert Joly,
CWT’s president and chief executive officer. He said, “Online booking
allows companies to reduce their total travel costs by roughly 10
percent. Realizing savings depends on the ability to quickly drive
online adoption around the world. This requires know-how from the
moment a company considers implementing an online booking system to
the time it takes to reach desired online adoption levels. So in
addition to offering clients our proprietary, cutting-edge technology,
CWT is committed to being the most effective travel management
consulting company and leading-edge systems integrator for a range of
technology solutions. This is one of the ways we help clients achieve
great results from their travel program.”

CWT’s global reseller agreement solidifies a longstanding
relationship established in 1998, when a CWT client first integrated
the GetThere system into its managed travel program. The GetThere
online reservation system offers several functionalities, including
multi-GDS (Global Distribution System) compatibility, multilingual
capabilities and international currencies. CWT clients will enjoy
added benefits that include preferential pricing; seamless integration
with other CWT proprietary technologies, such as CWT Portrait, the
company’s profiling tool; and faster rollout for GetThere
implementation, thanks to a reusable, CWT-specific framework. GetThere
also provides local support staff in those markets around the world
where its system is available.

“CWT is committed to providing its clients best-in-class
technology options, proprietary and third-party, to ensure their
travel program meets the business goals of the organization and its
culture,” said Jack O’Neill, chief operating officer CWT North
America. “CWT Horizon and GetThere are industry-leading solutions our
clients look to in order to achieve both savings and traveler

“We’ve been successfully providing online booking tools to CWT
clients for several years now,” added Beverly Heinritz, GetThere
general manager. “So we’re excited about formalizing our relationship
with CWT and are committed to working closely with them to deliver
optimum supplier content and streamlined reservation processes that
drive value for clients worldwide.”
