ODYSSEUS So­lu­tions has an­nounced new in­te­gra­tions with Uni­world Bou­tique River Cruises and Crys­tal Cruises, with in­ven­tory from both op­er­a­tors now con­nect­ing di­rectly with the Odysseus plat­form via an API. Dis­tri­bu­tion part­ners now have im­me­di­ate ac­cess to Uni­world, U by Uni­world, Crys­tal Cruises, Crys­tal Yacht Cruises and Crys­tal River Cruises, bring­ing the Odysseus plat­form to a to­tal of 28 cruise lines along with thou­sands of ho­tels and airlines which can be dy­nam­i­cally pack­aged. Odysseus also of­fers live flight and ho­tel book­ings via con­nec­tions with all three ma­jor GDS as well as Ex­pe­dia Af­fli­ate Net­work & Tourico. Odysseus founder Mon­ish Luthra, who re­cently show­cased the plat­form to Aus­tralian travel con­sul­tants in Syd­ney dur­ing the CLIA Aus­trala­sia Cruise360 con­fer­ence, said there had been a fan­tas­tic re­sponse to the prod­uct. “We’ve talked with a lot of peo­ple re­cently and shown them the book­ing en­gine, what it can do, how easy and fast it is to use. “It does a lot of things that oth­ers don’t, and there’s se­ri­ous in­ter­est from a num­ber of travel com­pa­nies in Aus­tralia and Asia, which is where we’ve fo­cused our sales ef­forts this year,” he said. Luthra said the com­pany was gear­ing up to meet the de­mand, with the ad­di­tion of twenty more soft­ware de­vel­op­ers and sup­port en­gi­neers tak­ing to­tal staff num­bers be­yond 100. Mi­ami-based Odysseus cur­rently gen­er­ates over 55,000 cruise and 300,000 flight book­ings each year, with vol­ume grow­ing at a rate of 30% an­nu­ally. The Aus­tralian sales of­fice for Odysseus is headed up by travel in­dus­try IT vet­eran Dave Up­ton.
