Pythagoras - easyJet
Paul Simmons, UK Director for easyJet, commented;
“This ground-breaking new system gives easyJet’s sales team the ability to share information which will ultimately enable us to offer the best service along with the best price - offering real cost savings for our customers.”
Kevin Brown, Sales Manager at Pythagoras, commented,
“We are delighted to not only have empowered easyJet with the deployment of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution but also to have developed a true partnership which will continue to benefit both parties going forward.”
The customer relationship management system will allow easyJet to profile each of its corporate customers to identify areas in which it can help both corporate clients and their travel management companies reduce their travel spend.
The system also features a “social network” type communication system that delivers fast and informative updates about what is happening in the market ensuring that the whole team can remain engaged and informed.
The implementation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM underpins easyJet’s position as Europe’s leading airline which has been making big strides into the corporate travel market. The airline carries more than nine million passengers annually.
easyJet was one of the first low cost airlines to make its inventory available to business travel bookers through GDS supplier Amadeus and in 2011 the agreement was further enhanced.
At the start of 2012, easyJet announced a pan European commercial agreement with American Express Global Business Travel along with a similar deal with leading UK travel management businesses FCm Travel Solutions and Corporate Traveller.
