Amadeus has selected VFM Leonardo's VScape Digital Asset Management System (VScape) to source and manage hotel images and rich media for the Amadeus GDS. The agreement will allow agents at more than 104,000 travel agencies using Amadeus worldwide to access an extensive range of photos, virtual tours and videos on hotels and resorts worldwide, helping them to better evaluate accommodations and determine those that best suit their end-travelers' needs.

In addition to adopting VScape for Amadeus hotel solutions for travel agencies, Amadeus will also utilize VScape to distribute visual content on behalf of Amadeus Multi-Channel Distribution (AMCD) hotel clients to the Amadeus GDS and thousands of additional channels in VFM Leonardo's VNetwork, the largest online visual content distribution network for the global travel industry.

By adopting VScape, Amadeus is now able to offer the thousands of hoteliers who participate in its GDS, a more streamlined way to make their visual content available on Amadeus and VNetwork. VFM Leonardo customers will continue to be able to easily update their visual content in Amadeus directly through the VScape interface.

Paolo Boni, President & CEO, VFM Leonardo states "We are ecstatic to work with Amadeus. The fact that Amadeus, a key player in the industry, has extended their relationship with us by selecting VScape as the exclusive source and management system for hotel visual content shows how highly-regarded our technology is. Together, we will enable our mutual hotel partners to better merchandise their properties online and increase their bookings as a result."

Hugo Ehrnreich, Head of Hotel Distribution at Amadeus states "VFM Leonardo is well-established as the leader in hotel visual content management and distribution, which is why we have extended our relationship with them to continue to provide travel agents with access to useful hotel imagery in Amadeus and help the end-traveler choose the hotel experience that best suits their needs and expectations."
