Limelight Networks Selected by eDreams Odigeo to Power Global Delivery for Their Online Travel Websites

Growing Global Travel Company Chooses Limelight’s Global Content Delivery Network (CDN)

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Limelight Networks, Inc. (“Limelight”) (NASDAQ:LLNW, news, filings), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that eDreams Odigeo, the world’s largest online travel company in the flight sector and the largest publicly traded European e-commerce company, has selected the Limelight OrchestrateTM Delivery service to deliver its e-commerce web sites.

“Our customers are well educated, savvy users of online travel agencies and don’t want to spend more than 15 minutes booking their travel,” said Aranzazu Del Rio, procurement manager at eDreams Odigeo. “We reached a point where we needed to diversify our platform and give our users an improved experience when booking their travel. We chose Limelight’s CDN so we could give our users around the globe an exceptional experience. Limelight had the best performance in our tests, as well as the best support.”

eDreams Odigeo initially had an internal platform supporting its websites, but needed far more functionality, speed, scalability, and a better global reach. The company offers multiple online travel sites in French, German, English, and Spanish, and their global business is growing, especially in areas such as Australia and Latin America. To completely globalize the services, they needed a global content delivery provider that could deliver content to any device, especially tablets and phones.

“As a frequent traveler, I fully understand the importance of easy, fast access to online travel agencies while on the go,” said Jonathan Smith, group vice president and managing director, EMEA at Limelight. “We participated in a highly competitive and thorough selection process and are honored to have been selected as the CDN provider to deliver eDreams Odigeo’s content.”

In addition to improving the e-commerce experience, eDreams Odigeo now has detailed reporting capabilities through the Limelight Orchestrate Delivery platform. Actionable analytics include visibility into each global location where their website is accessed, traffic patterns as well as when and what content is viewed. These analytics are essential for making good business decisions.
