Omni Hotels opts for Wizcom

WizCom is signing a new agreement with Omni Hotels, whereby Omni will have access to WizCom’s advanced hotel description tool - HOD.

HOD is a web-based data management and distribution tool that enables hoteliers to centrally manage and deliver descriptive data on all of their properties to their distribution network, including GDSs, IDSs, Hotel CRSs, and RFP vendor applications.  HOD is part of WizCom’s GDS and IDS data management suite of products, which also includes the Rate Manager product that provides centralized management and an enhanced delivery method for distributing hotel rates.

“We selected HOD to manage our complex volume of hotel descriptive data in one central web-based application to ensure that we are able to provide consistent, quality information,” said Tom Chevins, Omni Hotels’ senior vice president of sales and marketing.

“Hotel rates, descriptive information and hotel pictures are the critical elements in the hotel purchase decision process. Our GDS and IDS data management solutions gives hoteliers confidence that this key information is accurately updated and consistently applied to all channels in a more cost effective and timely manner,” said Richard Wiegmann, chief operating officer of the TRUST.WizCom Division, Cendant Travel Distribution Services.  “We will continue to make the necessary investments to maintain our market-leading position and drive even more bookings to our clients.”
