Coforge Limited has announced that it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Travel and Hospitality Competency Partner. Coforge achieved this recognition because it has demonstrated deep experience helping customers transform their business, from behind-the-scenes operational efficiencies to guest-facing customer experiences. The launch of the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency comes at a crucial time for the industry as it looks to innovate to address changing demands in the face of COVID-19.
AWS helps travel and hospitality customers of every size and segment – including airlines, airports, ground transportation, travel services and sellers, restaurants, lodging, entertainment venues and casinos, cruise lines, and technology providers – to stay agile and accelerate innovation. AWS launched the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency to help customers find highly specialized AWS Partners and take on the heavy lifting of identifying and validating industry leaders with proven customer success and technical proficiency.
Achieving this competency differentiates Coforge as an AWS Partner with deep domain expertise in one or more of the following categories: Data 360, Digital Customer Engagement, Smart Assets, Core Travel, and Hospitality Applications, and Consulting Services providing strategic guidance and deployment services.
“We are delighted that Coforge, one of our key partners, has achieved the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency. With this, we expect that their focus to help with business transformation goals, leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides, will further increase”, said Anthony Allcock, Chief Digital and Information Officer at British Airways. “Coforge has been transforming British Airways Customer Self Check-in Kiosks at airports across the world leveraging a cloud-first approach. This has led to a significant reduction in check-in time and improvement in application availability and resilience and hence improvement in customer experience. We are looking forward to Coforge continuing to accelerate BA’s modernization and innovation journey to deliver innovative solutions to improve the customer experience.”
“Coforge is proud to be one of the first AWS Partners to achieve AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency,” said Madan Mohan, Executive Vice President, and Global Head Travel, Transportation and Hospitality (TTH) vertical at Coforge. “Coforge brings over two decades of experience delivering innovation and outstanding value to TTH customers across the globe in areas including airlines, airports, hospitality, travel distribution, travel technology, cruise lines, and surface transport. Attaining an AWS competency will help us market and differentiate our business to AWS customers by showcasing our capabilities in Travel and Hospitality.”
