Market Leading Travel & Payment Products For Corporate Clients, Government Sector, TMCs, the MICE Industry & Accommodation Providers
With unrivalled technology, local experience and a wide range of travel clients and partners, The Lido Group has created some of the most innovative travel and payment solutions in the world.
The AADX is a centralised technology hub aggregating accommodation suppliers’ inventory and content across Australia. The AADX is, essentially, a large computer system that manages our various programs as well as automates the payment processes from the clients. It manages our contracted accommodation programs for various clients, powers our in-house call centre reservations system, uploads rates and availability to our website programs and allows suppliers to automatically update rates and inventory via a variety of methods.
It does all this while integrating with all major credit card central payment systems. The provision of credit card Enhanced Data and unlimited granular reporting is pivotal to the AADX and Lido’s success.
A further extension to our AADX service, the AADXPlus offering is available to accommodation providers from the beginning of 2013 and provides the ability for their properties to be available globally within the Amadeus GDS with the Chain Code of ‘AA’.
The emphasis of AADXplus is to make as many AADX properties as possible live within the GDS. These properties will be booked by a wide range of TMCs for corporate clients requiring accommodation traditionally non-GDS locations.
A product powered by the AADX, capable of processing large volumes of granular financial data for use by all card providers as Enhanced Data. Leveraging from the AADX’s rich data source and flexibility to connect to any centralised booking source, DORA is the new frontier in Enhanced Data for Accommodation and Folio data.
DORA being powered by the AADX enables Lido to deliver Enhanced Data for Accommodation, Inclusions and incidentals in a GST compliant format that excludes the need for tax invoices and reconciliation. DORA is the first system in Australia to offer corporate clients Enhanced Data across 100% of their accommodation spend.
