Scott Hyden, managing director, Sales, Americas, Travelport, said, "We are pleased to add e-Travel Technologies and their travel risk management services to our roster of duty of care solutions for the corporate travel market. e-Travel Technologies solutions are integrated to Travelport point-of-sale platforms via The Travelport Developer Network, a program specifically designed for independent software developers seeking to integrate their solutions with Travelport."
