The "HIP" Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas Switches
to SynXis for Distribution Management
Services and Technology

 
MCLEAN, VA, December 02 – SynXis announced today that the resort that has won 17 “Best of Las Vegas” awards, The Palms Casino Resort, has switched to the SynXis Distribution Management services and is now represented on the YX chain code on the GDS and IDS channels.  The Palms Casino will be taking advantage of SynXis’s comprehensive revenue management tools that will allow them to respond quickly to market changes and ensure they are maximizing their yield.

“The Las Vegas market literally experiences changes by the minute that can have an impact on a hotel’s profitability so it is critical for us to have a flexible reservation system,” said Kevin Glass, Reservation Manager at The Palms Casino Resort.  “It is obvious that SynXis is committed to the casino market as is reflected in the sophistication of the product and the local support they provide.” 

In addition to the channel distribution products and services, The Palms Casino will be utilizing the proven interface that SynXis has developed to the hotel’s property management system, LMS.  This feature will help the hotel reduce labor costs by eliminating the manual data entry of their high volume of reservations. 

“Our experience and in-depth knowledge of the Las Vegas market will be a great benefit to The Palms Casino Resort,” said Kathy Kettle, Managing Sales Director for SynXis.  “We are thrilled to add such an exciting property to our portfolio and look forward to assisting them in maximizing their revenue generated by the electronic distribution channels.”
