VIP International, through its business partnership with SynXis Corporation, is now providing all 93 Candlewood Suites across the United States with GDS connectivity, using the simple yet revolutionary SynXis Agent system.
VIP international is also handling all voice reservation services for Candlewood Suites through a professionally trained 24-hour accessible voice-centre, located in VIP International`s World Headquarters in Calgary, Canada.
With the transition to VIP International and SynXis Corporation`s SynXis Agent system, each Candlewood Suites property has the ability to manage all of their reservation booking channels through one secure Internet site. The SynXis Agent technology is browser-based and provides real-time, seamless connectivity to the four major GDS and Internet content providers, from Sabre to Galileo, Travelocity to Expedia.com. The connectivity will offer all Candlewood Suites extensive exposure to over 600,000 travel agents and travel planners worldwide, via the “YO” chain code. It was at the beginning of this month that Candlewood Vice President David Redfern said, “Our customers are just two clicks away from a reservation at nearly 90 Candlewood Suites coast-to-coast. And that can happen in as little as nine seconds, depending on your Internet connection.”
