DataArt® Launches Online Travel Solutions Practice

NEW YORK, January 27, 2009 - DataArt, a high-end software development company with R&D centers in Eastern Europe, announced the launch of its online travel and hospitality practice in the U.S. Among DataArt's offerings is development of custom booking engines with support for dynamic packaging and payment systems backed by sophisticated content management systems.

"We've been successfully working with European clients, from online travel start-ups to established travel technology companies, GDSs, hotels chains and inventory providers, for a number of years," said Michael Zaitsev, CEO of DataArt. "Customers appreciate our knowledge of online travel specifics and timely execution on budget, and we're happy to extend our service offer to the U.S. clients."

DataArt is a vendor of choice for companies that can't take advantage of the existing off-the shelf products, either because of novel business models or because of specific requirements and technology integration needs. DataArt also helps clients integrate with various inventory providers, reservation systems, property management, social networks and back office systems.

The new online travel practice includes a mobile solutions offering. Applying its vast experience with various technologies, from BlackBerry and Windows Mobile to iPhone and Google Android, DataArt develops native applications helping customers to manage itinerary, from building the route to searching for hotels and instantly booking them. DataArt also facilitates porting of existing client solutions to mobile platforms.

Among DataArt's clients in Europe are TVtrip, a search engine for hotels that uses unbiased videos to help users make the right hotel choice, and FastBooking, the global provider of advanced booking systems and e-marketing solutions for the hospitality industry.

"We believe it's a great time to get ahead of the competition by making smart strategic investments," added Zaitsev, "and DataArt helps clients maximize their ROI by offering the best value."
