Travelcare, the travel arm of the Co-operative Group is consolidating its online brands on one platform through...
a managed services contract with Attenda.
The three-year contract renewal will see the services company deliver a set of customised applications to online customers to create a totally bespoke holiday.
"This enables Travelcare to move beyond the role of retailing packaged holidays from a single operator," said Mark Hale, Head of IS & Business Transformation for the Co-operative Group's Specialist Retail Division. "We can now compete more effectively in a market led by customer demand for choice and flexibility."
Attenda’s systems use Microsoft .NET server products including SQL Server, Commerce Server, Content Management Server and BizTalk Server.
Travelcare, which has a network of 370 branches throughout the UK and over 2,000 staff, will benefit from separate production and disaster recovery systems in geographically dispersed datacentres.
