"Indra's Travel Management Suite is gaining traction around the world, as more andmore hotel companies are realizing the benefits of migrating to a single platform for hotel technologies," said Gonzalo Fortuny, Indra vice president hospitality solutions. "While many brands are starting their enterprise evolution with the TMS for ERP (placing back-office functions, such as Finance, Sales, Management Control, Procurement, Asset Management, Invoicing and HR modules together) or the TMS for Hotels solutions (PMS, CRS, Loyalty, Business Intelligence, Sales & Catering, Spa, Website and CRM), we are now seeing a significant amount of interest in our TMS for WEB solution as a stand- alone entity. TMS for WEB has a powerful booking engine with capabilities to ensure high conversion ratios with simple processes optimized from a usability and accessibility perspective. The solution enables hotel bookings to be made in a way that meets travelers preferences and fits their predefined behaviors. It also gives them access to pricing and availability faster, and it makes the overall booking process easier and more economical."
Segmentation and personalization are key differentiators in the booking arena. TMS forWEB has a powerful customer segmentation engine capable of detecting behaviors associated with guests interests and customizing the offer in real-time with relevant content. It also gives travelers access to offers, packages, rates and room options that help hotel marketers build better guest profiles and preferences. The system enables hoteliers to align the guest expectations with content, rates, offers and packages that are presented.
Built on a market leading SDL TRIDION content-management system, TMS for WEB isfully scalable and provides the necessary tools for multiple sites, multiple languages and multiple channels.
Key benefits of TMS for WEB include:
- Optimization of the offer processes with dynamic segmentation and customization
- The ability for a guest to check in online and select his or her specific room number (with or without additional costs, i.e. corner room number +$25)
- Group booking functionality integrated with social media Additional ancillary items sold trigger roomservice and housekeeping automatically to ensure seamless delivery of items based on time/date requested for each item
- Minimization of maintenance costs and evolution
