The end of 2010 marked the first full year of operations for Sabre Hospitality Solutions and along with it achievements and milestones that brought its customers success.
After combining five business units into one company Sabre Hospitality Solutions was not satisfied with just being the hospitality industry’s biggest distribution and marketing company but has become singularly focused on being the global leader in providing innovative hospitality solutions.
Whether the global economy is rebounding in 2011 is up for much debate, however, Sabre Hospitality Solutions ensures its customers are positioned to take full advantage of any opportunities that exist to grow revenues and increase exposure to travel buyers through all distribution channels. Sabre Hospitality Solutions newly formed Solutions Consulting Group consists of a team of experts in the areas of distribution marketing, revenue management, mobile solutions and Internet marketing. As a result of the team’s efforts, SynXis Central Reservations System (CRS) customers saw growth in same-store sales of almost 15 percent; and in 2010, Sabre Hospitality Solutions generated over USD $12.25 billion in hotel room revenue for its customers. Customers are continuing to see double-digit growth across all channels at the start of 2011.
In 2010 thousands of new hotels joined Sabre Hospitality Solutions across its entire portfolio, including: Preferred Hotel Group, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Aqua Hotels & Resorts, Thon Hotels, Scenic Hotel Group, Ascott, Regent International, Noble House Hotels & Resorts, Sandy Lane, Lime Wood Group, André Balazs Properties.
“This time last year I said Sabre Hospitality Solutions would set the gold standard for what the industry can expect from its marketing and distribution partners in terms of innovation, technology, competitiveness and compatibility and I believe we’ve achieved that goal,” said Felix Laboy, president and general manager of Sabre Hospitality Solutions. “We have assembled the best team in hospitality to ensure that we continue to deliver on that promise.”
