KLM Launches Enhanced Website Featuring iSeatz’s In-Path Plus

July 15, 2010

NEW ORLEANS, July 15 /PRNewswire/ — KLM, one of the world’s largest airline companies, and iSeatz, the world’s leading provider of customized in-path private label travel and entertainment solutions, today announced the launch of the enhanced klm.com, the first website to utilize iSeatz’s groundbreaking In-Path Plus technology platform.

In-Path Plus enables iSeatz to directly manage the user experience for its clients by adding new products and technological upgrades to the site, while featuring the single checkout process and functionality that iSeatz’s original In-Path solution also offers. This new full-service approach allows organizations like KLM to focus on their core business and better serve their customers, while materially decreasing time to market, launch costs, and total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the implementation.

“As the leader in developing next-generation private label solutions, we are thrilled to introduce an innovative technology that increases efficiencies and time to market for our clients,” said Kenneth Purcell, CEO, iSeatz. “KLM is committed to using the best in technology and it is an honor to be an integral part of the process.”

iSeatz’s engagement with KLM began in 2009 with the creation and launch of a customized private-label booking engine on klm.com, which offers customers access to nearly 200,000 leading service and product providers and the ability to purchase a range of travel amenities like ground transportation, hotel accommodation and car rental in a single transaction. The addition of In-Path Plus represents a major upgrade to KLM’s existing ancillary cross-sell technology platform.
