Choice Hotels Launches New Travel Agent Commission System

Choice Hotels International announced Wednesday the launch of a new travel agent commission payment processing system. The system will run with the help of Dell Services


The new system will not require any changes or actions by travel agents in order for them to begin taking advantage of the more efficient payment process. Choice Hotels will continue to implement new systems and features over time.

"Utilizing Dell to be the sole source disbursement company for our Travel Agent Commissions allows us to build on the vast industry network and robust technology that Dell currently maintains," said Sam Walters, assistant treasurer at Choice Hotels. "Choice will be able to provide a central help desk to assist with payment inquiries, comprehensive reporting, and a shorter payment cycle for many agents."

TACS is a global billing and payment processing system based on travel itineraries or travel bookings. The system collects data from multiple sources including, Global Distribution Systems (GDS), Computer Reservations Systems (CRS), Property Management Solutions (PMS), and Front Desk Systems, among others. On a monthly basis, Dell Services processes more than 30 million passenger and guest names and has partnerships with more than 50 hotel companies totaling over 30,000 hotels worldwide.
