Thistle Hotels Signs with Pegasus Solutions

Pegasus Solutions today announced
that its PegsTour is picking up steam, with Thistle Hotels
agreeing to participate and tour operators
Olympia Viaggi s.p.a. and TravelNewYork.com signing on as well.  PegsTour serves tour operators by automating key booking processes through an
electronic interface that connects operators to multiple hotel central reservation
systems.  The service normalizes system functionality, booking data and transaction
formats through one interface environment, thereby achieving connectivity between
very different hotel and operator technologies.  PegsTour offers real-time
electronic delivery of allocation hotel reservations, as well as modifications and
cancellations, to a hotel’s central reservation system and property management
system.

Vanessa DiMonte, director of sales for TravelNewYork.com, said:  “We are very much
looking forward to the addition of PegsTour for TravelNewYork.com. We are excited at
the new functionality that PegsTour will offer, in terms of streamlining the
reservation method and eliminating the margin of error often encountered with manual
processing.  This dramatic improvement will also enable us to concentrate more on
sales and customer care for our travelers.”

While these customers begin the implementation process to use the PegsTour service,
Pegasus continues to urge all of its hotel chain customers, as well as the worldwide
industry of large wholesale operators, to participate in this new service.  In June,
Pegasus announced that it had signed agreements with Hilton International, Kimpton
Hotels, Flairview Travel and CoachQuote.com.

“These companies are significant in the tour industry, processing thousands of
bookings each year,” said Bob Boles, executive vice president of sales and marketing
for Pegasus.  “We expect even more hotel chains and tour operators to sign on for
this service and finally experience the automation and real-time management of hotel
bookings.”
