SynXis, the Sabre Holdings business that provides hotel distribution and Internet marketing services globally reports it has surpassed 10,000 properties using its RedX Distribution Management System. The SynXis team added over 1,600 new properties in just the last six months.
SynXis says it has new offices opening recently in Japan, Hong Kong, Dubai and Australia and that the number of new customers based outside the United States exceeded new U.S.-based customers for the second straight year.
New customers includes: Hong Kong’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, France’s Relais & Chateaux, Japan’s Granvia Hotels, Singapore’s Meritus Hotels and Resorts, U.S.-based Woodfin Hotels and Kerzner, owners of Atlantis Bahamas, Dubai and The One & Only brand.
“The SynXis team has been instrumental in helping us achieve our goals with bookings across all channels. We have increased booking revenue and made our properties more marketable in ways that have made a huge difference to us,” said Jane Waterworth, director of sales and marketing, for U.K.-based Shire Hotels and Spas. “Our account manager’s expertise helped us boost GDS bookings last year and same property sales increased by 38 percent year over year, contributing significant incremental revenue.”
“We continue to focus on the specific needs of our customers,” said David Meltzer, vice president of global sales and accounts for SynXis. “While the economic outlook remains questionable for the travel industry, we are encouraged by each success story we’ve been able to play a part in for our customers. And while new sales grow at a record pace, existing customers continue to renew their agreements which indicates a high level of satisfaction with the products and services they are receiving.”
