PARSIPPANY, N.J. - Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchisor with approximately 9,100 hotels spanning more than 95 countries, today announced a new agreement with Groups360 to bring instant online multi-room bookings to Wyndham hotels in 2023.
Powered by GroupSync™, the hospitality industry’s leading direct booking solution, Wyndham hotels will have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate the platform with their hotel reservation systems, providing travel planners—from groups and events to those managing infrastructure, logistics and corporate accounts—the ability to view best available rates and availability as well instantly book rooms online.
Over the last three years, Wyndham has invested over $100 million in major technology initiatives, giving our franchisees access to best-in-class offerings that unlock new efficiencies while helping to grow their bottom line. Bringing franchisees access to GroupSync is just the latest example and one we believe offers incredible opportunity for franchisees, particularly those in the economy segment, where such technology is an industry first. Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts
Hotel companies that publish live inventory and rates within the GroupSync Marketplace save travel planners valuable time by allowing them to search, shop and book blocks of rooms. Whether it’s short one-to-two-night group events like youth sports, weddings and family reunions or multi-week infrastructure or logistics project like commercial construction, bridge repair or highway expansion, GroupSync empowers planners to quickly and easily book their preferred hotel instantly online or through a Smart RFP.
Wyndham is a major player in the hospitality industry with offerings that span every segment of the industry. Travel planners increasingly expect their hotel purchase experience to be seamless, instantaneous, and online. Wyndham’s deployment on GroupSync Marketplace does just that, all while saving hotels time and helping them better serve their guests. Tim Flors, chief customer officer, Groups360
Planners can already book guest rooms and meeting spaces using Wyndham’s global properties via GroupSync’s Smart RFP and group guest rooms are expected to start being available in GroupSync for instant, online booking later this year. All are a part of Wyndham’s innovative Wyndham Business program, which through a suite of tools and resources, aims to simplify business travel bookings.
