More low-key but steady developments in the world of search technology startup Everbread as it signs a pact with fellow system providers Ypsilon and Radixx.
The trio are planning to market their three core products as a single enterprise following an agreement signed last week.
The partnership will allow carriers working on stand-alone systems to combine search, web booking engines and offline booking systems together, Everbread says.
Officials say the agreement is aimed at low-cost and mid-size airlines. This particular follows a similar product pact signed between Everbread and Ypsilon in April 2010.
"The product blend will allow airlines that construct the full, split-ticket itinerary to market and cross-sell the virtual interlining tickets on their own websites – thus, LCCs and mid-size carriers will be able to offer their flights with traditional, full-service airlines and to provide travelers with more convenient and cheaper flight options."
Everbread launched in March 2010 to a somewhat curious industry given the bold statements made by its larger-than-life CEO Morten Lund in the tech press and in the Everbread TLabs Showcase.
Since then the Google-ITA Software story has emerged and some have started to question whether alternatives to ITA Software can emerge, especially in the US, including the likes of Everbread on the metasearch side.
A number of players that have seen Everbread's Haystack technology are said to be impressed, although the scalability of the system is still under scrutiny.
