press release

Kevin Smith Transportation Group announces completion of a global reservation system, integrating themselves with more than 500 airlines, 90,000 hotel properties, thousands of major tour operators and most Fortune 500 companies

Phoenixville — February 8th, 2019 — Today, Kevin Smith Transportation Group announced completion of their first major initiative of 2019, a system-wide integration into GDS.  GDS stands for “Global Distribution System”, which is a worldwide computerized reservation system leveraged by the largest bookers of travel in the world.

“As KSTG continues to expand, our ability to integrate our technology became critical”, said Owner & CEO Kevin Smith.  “By leveraging GDS, we allow our reservation system to connect directly with every major airline, hotel operator, travel agent and Fortune 500 company.”

GDS systems commonly used include Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, Ground Span, Deem and Worldspan.  “Integration allows bookers to see rates and availability for KSTG in real-time, providing a seamless reservation from a company’s internal system directly into our own reservation system”, said Kevin Smith.  “This triggers a series of events on our side, including assigning a preferred chauffeur, vehicle type and alerting dispatch to ensure the logistics are handled.”

Additional Benefits

Additional benefits include freeing up the time for our Concierge Team, who can now focus on service execution and less time on the booking itself.  “Our digital profiles of each client allow for an amazing level of customization for every client”, said Kevin Smith.  “As a luxury ground transportation option, each client controls their own experience, ensuring expectations are more than met every ride we provide.  GDS is simply the next step in the company motto, “Service Different”.
