HBSi Debuts in Europe and Asia
Trust International partners with HBSi, an IBS Group company, to strengthen its distribution offering to Tour Operators and key OTAs worldwide
Trust International provides central reservations and distribution solutions to international hotel groups, including some of the most prestigious hotel organizations of the world. "We're excited to expand our reach with one of the world's most forward--looking travel and technology providers; the brands within their portfolio is good news for our distribution partners, including many large tour operators and wholesalers," said Greg Berman, HBSi Chief Operating Officer. "The built-in intelligence and flexibility of our platform is what truly sets us apart from other connectivity providers. As such, we are uniquely positioned to further establish robust automation as the standard for reservation processing throughout Europe as well as the emerging markets, such as China, India and Australia, where our ability to integrate technology for complex business models is proving valuable", he added.
"To capitalize on and build relevant distribution for our newest European and Asian Supply, we have sought experienced specialists in hotel distribution based in London to lead our strategic international growth. Peter Fitzgerald and John Seaton, both previously with Pegasus Solutions, have played significant roles over the last ten years in creating the international hotel distribution world we see today and share our vision and commitment to delivering ever - appropriate solutions for hoteliers and demand partners to automate trade whilst respecting each other's technology." continued Berman.
The iDemand GatewayTM solution connects hotels chiefly with tour operators as well as the world's largest online travel agencies to centralize and automate the flow of transactions. The solution eliminates time-consuming, error-prone processes associated with manually managing multiple extranets, thus improving operational efficiency by providing distribution channels with access to the very latest rates, inventory and, in many cases, last room availability.
HBSi provides a flexible channel management and connectivity platform as well as software integration services to improve the quality and speed of delivering high performance distribution solutions to the travel industry. HBSi is an IBS Group company with hotel supply customers that include Elite Island Resorts, Fairmont, Fontainebleau Las Vegas, Harrah's, Intrawest, ResortQuest Hawaii, and Sandals, and travel partners including Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz and Booking.com.
