Hogg Robinson Group Acquires Digital Travel Innovator eWings.com

May 24, 2017

Hogg Robinson Group announces that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the digital travel innovator eWings.com, a next-generation travel management company. The acquisition is expected to complete within the next 15 working days.

 

A totally online offering, eWings.com provides a fast and easy-to-use solution for digital business travel with a quick to start process and low cost service model which is especially well suited to small businesses that require a simplified digital service.

 

Commenting on the acquisition Bill Brindle, CIO of Hogg Robinson Group, says: “eWings.com provides us with a developed solution as well as some great new technology which is highly complementary to our own proprietary technology and will fit perfectly with our platform.”

 

Brindle continues: “In addition to being an exciting new approach to fast and easy business travel, eWings.com gives us a speed to market advantage in the small business space and means we can accelerate our new distribution strategy across the whole market.”

 

Operating currently in Germany, eWings.com has the same Omni-Channel capability being developed by Hogg Robinson Group-owned HRG for its global corporate clients and there will be both technology advantages and synergies which will flow easily between the teams.

 

Bill Brindle concludes: “There will be no immediate change for clients, partners and staff, and it will be very much business-as-usual for eWings.com and HRG as the teams work towards the technology opportunities and new client advantages that this exciting acquisition brings.”
