Technology: DataArt shares UK expansion plans
By Matthew Parsons
Charlotte Lamp Davies, Vice President of Travel and Hospitality, Europe at DataArt, spoke wth TTGDigital about her role in the company's expansion in UK, about DataArt's “elastic IT” message, engaging clients via peer-to-peer events and the benefits of working with an Eastern-European software provider.
"It’s now in a “major expansion phase”, says Lamp Davies. It has worked with VisitBritain (on mobile technology); Collette Vacations (re-engineering its site, booking engine and online marketing tools); Hotelbeds.com; Digital Visitor (for cruiseminded) and Miki Travel (booking systems). It has also built mobile apps for Betfair and Ocado.
"We now want to work more with travel agencies, of a significant size,” says Lamp Davies, “and ones that have a history and legacy, where a re-engineering is needed. We have built agencies from scratch.”
