Utell will also provide Park Place with local account management, revenue and yield management, and marketing services.
Under the agreement, Utell has developed a package of reservation services providing Park Place with the capabilities to accept travel agent reservations via the four major GDS` and with global voice call centres. Additionally, Utell is enhancing Park Place Entertainment`s existing Internet distribution with over 1,000 Web sites affiliated with Pegasus Solutions` Online Distribution Network.
Utell is also providing Park Place with the ability to have a two-way interface between their CRS and their PMS, which enables real time access for travel agents to all available inventory.
