HotelREZ Hotels and Resorts (HotelREZ) and Guestline ink new partnership agreement to provide full service representation to hotels via HotelREZ’s own HO chain code on the GDS.
HotelREZ, one of the largest and fastest growing hotel representation companies in the world, has been appointed as a GDS and distribution partner to Guestline, a leading provider of cloud-hosted property management (PMS), distribution and digital marketing technologies for the hospitality industry.
The two UK-based companies have already put in place a certified two-way XML connection, which ensures hotel customers benefit from seamless connectivity between both providers. With this new partnership, Guestline customers are able to distribute real-time rates and inventory to the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), primarily used by travel agents, as well as to millions of other bookers using websites powered by the GDS worldwide. In addition to this, HotelREZ customers can benefit from Guestline’s online merchandising platform, WebSuite, and channel management services.
“Recognising that the GDS is of great importance to hotels’ bottom line, we decided to broaden our distribution offering by partnering with HotelREZ, who are recognised as a global leader in the hotel representation sector,” said Rupert Gutteridge, Sales and Marketing Director at Guestline. “Our certified two-way connectivity has already proved beneficial to a significant portfolio of mutual clients, providing them with optimal revenue and yield capabilities. Coupling Guestline’s Rezlynx PMS with HotelREZ’s unique distribution capabilities adds significant value for customers.”
Guestline customers can also benefit from access to HotelREZ’S own network of preferred travel agencies and consortia partnerships, as well as its global demand programme, which includes corporate and MICE RFP generation.
“Guestline offers a best in breed property management system, and exceptional service to its customers, so we are delighted to have been selected as a GDS representation partner,” said Mark Lewis, founder and CEO of HotelREZ. “HotelREZ is continually focused on leading the market in providing a range of flexible entrepreneurial distribution, sales and marketing tools, aimed at independent hotels worldwide on an individual hotel or Private Label basis.
