Amadeus, a leading global distribution system (GDS) and
travel industry technology provider, today announced that
it has successfully renewed the stringent ISO 9001:2000
quality certification which will be valid till May 2007.
9001:2000 forms the foundation of Amadeus's company-wide
quality management system, which guarantees consistent
customer focused processes aimed at achieving outstanding
innovation, world-class products and superior value for
money. In May 2001, Amadeus India became the first National
Marketing Company (NMC) of any GDS in the world to be
certified in the new version of the ISO standard, which
measures best practices in the company's management and
business processes against leading global benchmarks.
Three years later, Amadeus India continues to be the only
NMC of any GDS to be ISO 9001:2000 certified.
on the certification, Ankur Bhatia, managing director,
Indian subcontinent, said, "At Amadeus, focus on
quality is a top priority. We believe that this reflects
in everything we do as a company and in our interaction
with our customers and partners. The ISO 9001:2000 certification
validates this commitment and further strengthens the
invincible trust that our customers have on the Amadeus
GDS, and our internationally recognised guidelines and
standards on quality management."
quality system certification ensures commitment to the
highest global standards for performance and delivery.
This reflects in all departments of Amadeus's core sites:
the corporate headquarters
in Madrid, Spain, the data centre in Erding, Germany,
and the development centre in Sophia Antipolis, France.
