Thistle and Guoman Hotels Choose EZYield.com Channel Management Solution For Combined Property Portfolio
Technological advantages, including the integration of booking information, placed EZYield.com ahead of key competitors for the major UK hotel group
"We short-listed the key channel management software options and ran user trials with each to determine which product would best support our immediate and future channel management requirements, as well as deliver the best integration with our overall distribution strategy," stated Claire Castro, head of pricing and distribution for Thistle and Guoman Hotels. "The combination of EZYield.com's technology, business development and customer service set them apart from their competitors."
In addition to the successful testing of EZYield.com's channel management technology, Castro is also interested in EZYield.com's RezDelivery platform for a more easily managed and cost-effective system of receiving hotel reservations for future development.
"At EZYield.com we pride ourselves on our ability to be readily available to our clients, regardless of their geographic location, and we are willing and able to work within their development and timeframe plans," stated Ed St. Onge, CEO of EZYield.com. "Our new two-way enterprise solution, which includes OTA and GDS yielding products and reservation delivery technologies, provides the best technology available for hoteliers who are interested in a proven record of simple and user-friendly solutions to increase revenues."
"Everything we have heard about EZYield.com is true. A considerable amount of time is saved during the yielding process; the system is easy to use; their customer service is impeccable; and system updates do not affect any of our real-time processes," stated Castro. "The systems are very versatile and greatly minimize the time we spend on daily updates."
EZYield.com will be conducting personalized demonstrations of their technology solutions at World Travel Market from 9-12 November 2009, in Booth TT3100 in the North Hall.
