Prestigious Château Cartier Switches To FastBooking Solutions to Boost Online Visibility, Bookings And Channel Management
Host of the G8 2010 Summit Foreign Ministers meeting, Château Cartier is upgrading to the FastBooking Engine complemented with the Web Traffic Builder and GDS distribution programs, and FastBooking Updater.
"We want a system that shows off our potential with the maximum flexibility and tools to sell our hotel and amenities," says Yannick Martin, Château Cartier Rooms Division Director. "The FastBooking Engine is known for its high conversion rate. We can include booking options for our restaurant, spa and health club, and for the conference center. Clients can reserve everything they'd like in one go. In the future, our clients will even be able to build their own personal package. It increases our revenue, and it's super easy for clients to use--and for our staff as well."
FastBooking Web Traffic Builder was selected by the Château Cartier to enhance its international visibility. This FastBooking solution incorporates 30 exclusive hotel booking websites attracting more than 1 million unique travelers per month. FastBooking GDS provides complementary visibility to more than 650,000 professionals in the travel industry via seamless connection to the four key GDS players and 2000 IDS including the 70 majors.
The Château Cartier is also keen to develop more sales through its official website. FastBooking Web Traffic Builder hotel booking websites feature direct links to each hotel's official website.
"Another element that convinced Château Cartier about FastBooking is the firm's 'pay for performance' philosophy. "We know immediately if their solutions are working for us," says Yannick Martin.
"At FastBooking, our goal is to increase bookings on our client hotel's website. This is a key feature of our service and it's unique to FastBooking. Driving clients to the hotel's website increases revenues on the most direct channel, gives the hotel greater online independence, and lets them develop a personal relationship with their clients and potential clients that can be developed in the future," says Jean-Thierry Lods, FastBooking Sales Director. "The partnership with the Château Cartier is a great opportunity for us both. We're very excited about working with them and increasing our North American presence."

FastBooking products and services optimize a hotel's business by maximizing highly profitable direct website bookings, then rationalize inventory and pricing across all online sales channels.
