“A multi-lingual, global voice reservation capability is critical for an upscale hotel portfolio like Rosewood, with multiple international source markets. TRUST’s experience in the luxury sector, their global capability and exceptional customer satisfaction ratings made it a relatively easy decision for us,” said Robert Boulogne, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to working with Cendant’s experienced staff and telemarketing capabilities to help optimize our voice distribution sales,” added Boulogne.
“Our agreement with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts further acknowledges our expertise in all hotel distribution channels, and our commitment to providing the highest level of service to the global hotel industry,” stated Richard Wiegmann, COO, WizCom and TRUST International, Cendant Travel Distribution Services Division. “Our ‘virtual concierge desk,’ which handles special guest requests, is considered by many hotel companies to be an extension of their properties rather than a simple reservation service. Our sophisticated call center technology and sales-oriented staff help us offer an industry-leading service which we look forward to providing for the guests of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts throughout the world,” added Wiegmann.
