Welcome to Distribution Solutionz
Global Travel Distribution
I have spent the bulk of my career in the travel industry, somehow touching the marrying of buyers and sellers of travel. Officially it has been 30 years. Whew. It goes by fast.
I joined the industry the first year that the GDSs (then CRS) were installed in travel agencies. I've spent the rest of my career touching just about every aspect of the travel value chain - technology, business models, strategy, process. You name it.
This blog will be focused on the forward looking trends in travel and also those trends outside our industry that directly impact us. Namely location based services/content, mapping, navigation and GPS.
I will post on a regular basis, but not necessarily daily, so if you are interested in the subject, please subscribe to the RSS feed.
