At its Global Conference in Las Vegas, Wyndham Hotel Group announced to thousands of franchisees that the company has entered into a global CRS services agreement to migrate its central reservations systems to Sabre Corporation’s SynXis Central Reservations solution.
The agreement makes Sabre the exclusive global central reservation system provider for Wyndham and makes Wyndham Hotel Group the first global company to leverage the overall Sabre SynXis Enterprise Platform. As part of its strategy to bring industry-leading technology to its global portfolio of franchisees and hotel operators, this arrangement significantly expands upon the strategic property management services agreement forged in 2014 designed to migrate 4,500 properties within the Wyndham family of hotel brands to Sabre’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) property management system, the SynXis Property Manager. The first hotel to participate under a successful pilot is the Days Inn Raleigh Downtown in Raleigh, N.C.
The next phase of the partnership will further leverage Sabre’s SynXis Enterprise Platform to power central reservations for all of Wyndham Hotel Group’s branded properties.
Wyndham Hotel Group is scheduled to begin the process in late 2015 of migrating over an 18- to 24-month period the more than 7,600 hotel properties operated under one of Wyndham Hotel Group’s brands to the web-based SynXis CR, providing them with unlimited global access and exposure to travellers around the world.
