Cendant Adds Two Hotel Groups to Client Portfolio

Cendant TDS has signed two new agreements with Vagabond Inns, in the US, and Abba Hotels, in Spain, to provide their Voyager Central Reservation System (CRS) and supporting data management tool EasyAccessPlus RateManager.
Voyager CRS, from Cendant TDS subsidiary TRUST International, will enable Vagabond Inns and Abba Hotels to address the challenges of multi-channel distribution while driving down transaction costs.  Voyager CRS services include Global Distribution System (GDS) next generation seamless connectivity, a multi-lingual Internet booking engine, software for companies« own reservation offices, content management tools, business intelligence and reporting modules and centralized commission payment capabilities.

Through WizCom International, another subsidiary of Cendant TDS, both hotel groups will also utilize EasyAccessPlus RateManager, an efficient rate loading tool which distributes rate information to all GDS and online channels from a single interface.

“We selected the Voyager CRS and EasyAccessPlus RateManager products because of their high degree of interaction and the expanded distribution reach which enables us to closely manage our distribution costs and increase our sales. Its vast distribution channels offer us a leg-up in our strategy to expose our hotel properties to a broad customer base,” said Don Johnson, president and CEO of the Vagabond Franchise Company.

“We are delighted to add Vagabond Inns and Abba Hotels to our client roster as it underlines the true global value of our Voyager CRS combined with GDS and data management tools across the entire hotel industry.” said Richard Wiegmann, chief operating officer, TRUST International and Wizcom International.
