The Irish Hotels Federation (IHF), the national body for Irish hotels and guesthouses, has selected SynXis Agent to power its reservations distribution system.
The IHF hosts a Web site for all hotels, country houses, inns, castles, and guesthouses to help these historic destinations attract visitors. In addition to using the SynXis booking engine for their own site, the IHF has endorsed the use of the entire suite of SynXis products (including seamless GDS connectivity and direct reservations system) for all members, providing them a cost-effective way to increase their distribution to thousands of new customers globally.
SynXis Agent, a suite of Java-based Internet applications that includes the Book-A-Rez booking engine, empowers each hotel to offer availability on IHF`s irelandhotels.com site and to independently update rates, property descriptions and room availability to all booking channels. This functionality provides the hotel with greater flexibility and full control in addition to increased exposure through the Internet. Visitors to the IHF Web site are able to book a reservation and receive a confirmation number during the session.
