Since its formation in mid-2009, Sabre Hospitality Solutions has added a record number of customers and surpassed 10,000 properties using its SynXis Central Reservations System (CRS). In 2009, Sabre Hospitality Solutions generated over $9.5 billion in hotel room revenue for its customers.
Even in a recession year, Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ CRS customers saw growth in overall same-store sales and the outlook is even brighter as the group started this year with a 32 percent daily average increase in overall bookings (January 2010 compared to January 2009).
Some noteworthy customers who selected Sabre Hospitality Solutions in 2009 include: The Preferred Hotel Group, JAL Hotels, Langham Hotels International, Park Hotel Group, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group , Condé Nast Johansens, De Historiske Hotels of Norway, Japan Rail Hotel Group, Westcord Hotels, Hamilton Island, and Meritus Hotels & Resorts.
“We believe that creating one hospitality group with a comprehensive, global range of solutions for hoteliers will provide something that no other company can offer,” said Felix Laboy, president and general manager of Sabre Hospitality Solutions.
This year Sabre Hospitality Solutions expects new technology trends, including the use of mobile devices to merchandise their hotels and chains with a customized mobile web site and booking engine. As its own distribution channel, mobile bookings can be tracked separately and hotels can offer promotions unique to the mobile user.
