, announced today that The Alexander All-Suite Oceanfront Resort in Miami Beach has selected TravelCLICK’s iHotelier booking engine for its GDS and website connectivity. The Alexander will be using TravelCLICK’s technology platform to manage its distribution activities through its local Internet channels.Said David Dohmen, General Manager of The Alexander, “We selected TravelCLICK’s booking engine because it is critical for an independent hotel to have the same presence in the electronic channels as the brand chains and TravelCLICK’s enabling technology allows us to do that. TravelCLICK provides us with the ability to manage all aspects of our electronic distribution strategy.”
TravelCLICK’s enabling technology, including the patent-pending OneScreen web booking engine user interface, customized web-based CRS, GDS connectivity, online voice reservation management, Internet marketing, and dynamic packaging (allowing consumers to customize their own packages), provides all the tools necessary for the property to manage the electronic distribution process on their own. In addition, the new TravelCLICK functionality enables both corporate accounts and meeting attendees to make hotel reservations into their blocks directly through the property’s website.
“Our partnership with The Alexander is a prime example of the way our cutting-edge technology can support an independent hotel’s electronic distribution strategy. The iHotelier booking engine gives individual hotels the ability to maximize their profits from electronic distribution on the web,” said Richard Gray, chairman and co-CEO of TravelCLICK.
