Frankfurt, Germany, 10 March, 2010– Trust International today at the ITB Conference announced the successful implementation of yourVoyager CRS for Maistra Hotels & Resorts (www.maistra.com), marking a continuing growth of its customer base.  The announcement comes on the heels of the news of Jurys Inn’s addition to Trust’s client portfolio last week. Croatian luxury hotel brand Maistra Hotels & Resorts selected Trust International to provide revenue-generating CRS services via Trust’s yourVoyager™ CRS and it chose The Private Label Company for professional marketing and sales services.
 
With Maistra and Jurys Inn as Trust’s first new clients in 2010 and the launch of Trust|Mobile, Trust continues the success story of 2009 into 2010.  Trust signed and implemented 14 new customers on the yourVoyager CRS in 2009 to producing a net gain for the year.  Trust´s business year 2010 is already off to a strong start with the first new customers implemented and more new customer announcements expected in the coming weeks.  Additionally, Trust has announced new interfaces in PMS and IDS channels, and a clear road map of mobile technologies, booking engine enhancements and new yourVoyager CRS applications for the next months.
 
“We are pleased with our continued growth in our global customer portfolio, especially in markets like Asia and the Mid-East, but also in our established market in Europe and the U.S.,” said Richard Wiegmann, Managing Director, Trust International.  “We are well positioned to continue this momentum throughout 2010 and beyond with the expansion of our services and customer base, our greater presence in Asia and the Mid-East, and the strengthening of partnerships with third party providers.  We are focusing on accelerating our customers’ growth and improving their commercial margins via innovative solutions developed from interaction with our customers and our continued investment in R&D.”
