Following Expedia's acquisition of Orbitz Worldwide, leaders of Egencia and Orbitz for Business have been meeting for about six weeks. On Nov. 16, they informed Orbitz for Business clients they would migrate "in waves" next year to Egencia's booking systems and other technology.
This won't include IBM, which was one of the biggest Orbitz for Business clients although it used only the company's self-booking interface, not its fulfillment operation. IBM has decided it would move to Concur Travel, complementing its use of Concur's expense system.
Losing the only client for the Orbitz for Business . . .
