Sabre Hospitality Solutions adds RateGain’s business intelligence and distribution technology to its portfolio
New product suite boosts bottom line and gives hotels a competitive edge
LONDON, UK and NEW DELHI, India – November 7, 2011 Sabre Hospitality Solutions, a leading technology provider to the global hotel industry, has teamed up with RateGain, a global software company, to expand business intelligence and distribution for its hotel customers.
The new suite of products includes competitive price intelligence to complement Sabre's existing revenue management tools. Sabre will also integrate RateGain's technology with its SynXis central reservation system to seamlessly connect to hundreds of online global travel websites.
Stephen Fitzgerald, Sabre Hospitality Solutions' chief operating officer, said: "We're always on the lookout for new partners in the market that can help our customers grow their business.
"RateGain's innovative technology complements our product suite, and supports the commercial and distribution goals of all our customers at a chain, group and individual property level."
Fitzgerald said integrating RateGain's capabilities into the Sabre portfolio meant that more comprehensive distribution and customer insight would allow hotels to improve how they serve guests.
With the new suite of products in place, Sabre Hospitality Solutions' hotel customers will gain:
- Improved decision making due to a single point of entry. Integrating comparison shopping data provides business insight by channel where it is actionable.
- Enhanced revenue management toolkit combining competitive rate shopping with Sabre Hospitality Solutions' existing, industry leading revenue-management functionality.
- Expanded, two-way distribution through direct connections to more channels globally, ultimately reducing the need for faxes, emails and extranets.
"We are pleased to partner with Sabre and expand the already impressive technology that is deployed for Sabre Hospitality Solutions' member hotels", said Bhanu Chopra, chief executive of RateGain.
"Savvy hoteliers are always looking for that additional competitive edge in rate and inventory management, guest satisfaction and room-night distribution, which is why we've joined with Sabre to provide more solutions to maximise hotel business and customer satisfaction."
