Dolphin Dynamics has signed a deal with Pegasus Solutions which will add over 60,000 hotel properties to the portfolio of travel products available on the TravelScanner selling platform.
The integration of the Pegasus connection within TravelScanner provides users with real-time and dynamic access into the centrally-held inventory of hotel chains and individual properties worldwide. In addition to being able to book all the published rates made available by the properties, this direct connect functionality also allows TravelScanner users to book specially negotiated rates (corporate, wholesale, etc.), directly in the hotel companies’ central databases.
For those smaller hotels that are either not available via Pegasus or are unable to provide special rates via this dynamic link, TravelScanner customers will be able to make use of Pegasus’ PegsTour® application, which provides a “local” inventory facility for the management of hotel contracts and allocations.
In addition, TravelScanner users will have access to the Pegasus Online Distribution Database, enabling them to view the most up-to-date feature-rich property information and images, including location, amenities and available facilities.
This completely integrated solution delivers to Dolphin customers a true multi-channel distribution platform, by having a single application service to all sales channels, including; online, call centres and shops. The same application that searches and books travel products also manages fulfilment functions, including; CRM, payment collection, document production, workflow management, quality control, travel accounting and MIS.
Roberto Da Re, President, Dolphin Dynamics said; “By integrating with Pegasus, TravelScanner can now provide an automated solution to those travel companies that need access to the widest possible range of properties from a single booking platform, eliminating the need to manage contracts and/or allocations in a different system, saving considerable efforts and money. We also realised that not all properties will have this high level of connectivity available, which is why the functionality of managing rates and local inventory that Pegasus offers with their PegsTour application, was a natural choice in order for us to be able to provide a complete solution for our customers accommodation needs.”
