Trust International Introduces Voyager|CRS Complete Rate Program
to Automate Rate Maintenance for Hotels

Leading Hotels of the World Properties Streamlining Rate Adjustments With Voyager|CRS Complete Rate



FRANKFURT -- 24 September, 2009 -- Hotels’ difficult task of offering the best rate while balancing the need for flexibility just got a lot easier thanks to Trust International’s new Complete Rate program which automates rate maintenance.  Trust’s new Complete Rate program is a comprehensive set of powerful rate maintenance tools which offers the industry’s most flexibility; supports hotel companies’ wide array of strategies to maintain, control or adjust contracted and public flexible rates in the central reservation system (CRS); and disseminates them to the various distribution systems. 

Mindful of the complexity of hotel rate strategies and rate loading, Trust International over the past two years has developed the Complete Rate program, which includes recently added functionality on Voyager|CRS  that further enhances the rate loading system and supports the different options for rate loading specific to each hotel’s strategy.

Leading Hotels of the World partner hotels are some of the first Trust International customers making use of numerous ways in which rates can be structured and linked to reduce maintenance effort. 

Jon Londeen, Leading Hotels of the World Senior Vice President, Reservations Management, said, “Our member hotels appreciate the added efficiencies provided by Trust’s Complete Rate program.  Automating tasks like this positively impact the bottom line both in staff time saved and in the hotel’s ability to be more competitive through accurate execution of its rate strategy.” 

Teresa McEnheimer, Director of Revenue Management for Leading Hotel of the World partner ETC Hotels, noted: “Trust International’s Best Available Rate (BAR) Upload by Length of Stay has allowed us to handle the challenge of what rate to quote by selecting the optimal rate with the highest probability of selling based on arrival date and length of stay.”

“A key differentiator for Trust International customers is that we allow all derivative rates to be generated from the best available rate, lowest available rate (LAR), or a rate of their choice for all channels,” said Richard, Wiegmann, COO and managing Director of Trust International.  “Our system enables our hotel customers to set up their derivative rate strategies and then we automatically maintain all the rates for them, which significantly reduces their rate maintenance costs.” 

Trust’s yourVoyager offers numerous ways in which rates can be structured and linked to reduce maintenance effort.  For example: A hotel is able to link all of its rates using a flat amount or percentage to a single set rate such as a BAR or LAR, or perhaps link them to a rate that is recommended by a revenue management system (RMS) or to the lowest public rate for each day. This way, by simply adjusting that single rate, Trust’s system automatically adjusts all the linked rates using the hotel’s proprietary rate strategies, streamlining it at the daily operational level for the hotel staff.
