18 Nov 2013

Datalex’s transaction revenues are up 15pc on last year and the company expects to deliver 25-30pc earnings growth for 2013, an interim trading statement for the quarter ending 31 October reveals.

The provider of e-commerce systems to the airline and travel industry said today that revenues are being driven by customers joining its Travel Distribution Platform (TDP), including Virgin Australia.

Notable developments during the quarter include being named a preferred supplier to a US airliner, as well as being selected as preferred supplier to a South American carrier, the first in that region.

“Our pipeline contains a number of other prospects at varying stages of progress, and we expect to sign additional new customers in the coming months,” the company stated.

“In addition, we continue to roll out our TDP platform at the SITA group of carriers, and are exploring a number of opportunities with our channel partner, HP,” Datalex said.
