Diesenhaus press release

LogNet Travel Delivers a SaaS-based eTravel Solution for a Leading Travel Agency in Israel

Diesenhaus upgrades its eCommerce platform with a new eTravel solution from LogNet Travel

London, United Kingdom and Tel Aviv, Israel (November 5, 2014) – LogNet Travel, an innovative provider of eTravel solutions for leading travel agencies worldwide, today announced that the company has deployed its eTravel solution for Diesenhaus, the leading travel company in Israel, to replace its eCommerce platform.


Diesenhaus is one of the largest and well-known travel agencies and tour operators in Israel. The company offers a full range of customized and standard travel packages for inbound and outbound tourists and domestic and international business travelers.


Diesenhaus was one of the first travel companies in Israel to establish an online presence and sell travel services over the Internet. After operating an in-house web site, Diesenhaus’ online capabilities became out-of-date and difficult to maintain. In early 2014, LogNet Travel was chosen to replace Diesenhaus in-house web site with its off-the-shelf eTravel solution.


LogNet Travels eTravel solution has turned Diesenhaus online presence into a modern travel web site with state-of-the-art content management capabilities and an advanced promotion engine. The new eTravel solution immediately improved the appearance, navigation and workflow of Diesenhaus web site. More importantly, the solution has increased conversion rates and sales on the web site.


The solution includes an advanced product catalog that empowers Diesenhaus to build customized travel packages, such as targeted promotions for “last minute travel”, seasonal activities, events, destinations, airlines or hotels. It also includes a range of flexible marketing tools that enable Diesenhaus to design attractive landing pages, control SEO parameters, adjust prices dynamically, issue coupons and discounts, and more.


“Our experience is a familiar story for many travel agencies,” commented Eyal Seluk, CEO at Diesenhaus.

“Our work with LogNet has given us modern tools to meet our strategic objectives to support our online business growth and maintain our leading position in the travel and leisure industry here in Israel.”


By launching LogNet’s eTravel solution, Diesenhaus can independently manage its web site, while enjoying the benefits of using this solution on a SaaS basis.


Diesenhaus new eTravel solution is connected to the Sabre Global Distribution (GDS) network and uses the latest web services available, enabling seamless connectivity for information about hotels, low cost airlines and other local content to be uploaded to its web site. Diesenhaus is one of Sabres largest customers in Israel.


LogNet Travel and the Sabre operation in Israel are cooperating on developing and promoting an integrated solution that combines the two companies offerings to travel agencies.


“We are proud to welcome Diesenhaus to our growing list of prominent travel agencies around the world that are benefitting from our innovative eTravel solution,” said Taly Eshel, CEO of LogNet Systems. “The deployment of our eTravel solution for Diesenhaus can serve as a model to other travel agencies around the world looking to improve the performance of their web sites and meet their online business objectives.”
