These days it’s not uncommon for properties to receive around 80% of their bookings via online channels and the GDS. It makes sense then for properties to connect their PMS to the range of Channel Managers and GDS that GuestCentrix integrates with.
GuestCentrix connects with a wide range of leading channel distribution partners and in recent months has integrated with Sabre Hospitality Solutions which provides hotels a fully automated, end-to-end and efficient workflow for the distribution of rates to its industry leading booking engine. The link also enables hotels to capture rich booking data that is essential for measuring growth of key corporate and direct channels.
“Direct connects mean faster updates to booking engines and GDS”
CMS Hospitality, Director of Global Sales, Duncan Waterman said “Many clients are now implementing multiple distribution and revenue management interfaces from their GuestCentrix PMS which is paying great dividends. In recent years the majority of hotels have simply connected to one channel manager which has met most of their needs. What we are now seeing is properties supplementing their existing channel manager connections with additional connections to great solutions like Synxis from Sabre Hospitality.”
“Connecting directly benefit properties as PMS connections are very often faster in terms of getting updates to market. Hotels implementing direct connects to GDS’ are also able to collect more information in their corporate reservations which is critical to measuring growth.” Duncan said.
