Synchronize User Profile Information

GetThere DirectGovernment, along with premium add-on services, such as GetThere DirectData, allow GDS profile information to flow easily between GetThere distributor systems and government agency IT systems. This ensures consistent and timely access to key travel information, including ticketing, billing, reporting, user profile management, and expense-report management.

For government agencies with independent operating units, booking sites can easily be deployed that meet the needs of individual organizations. Importantly, all related reporting and cost saving data from individual sites can be controlled through a parent site for ease of administration.
