SynXis Agent® Increases Design Hotels'
Reservations 30 Percent
Electronic Reservation Delivery System Doubles Design’s
Reservations In First Five Days

McClean, VA – March 16, 2002 – SynXis Agent®, a complete Internet-based reservation delivery system, has increased Design Hotels’ reservation transactions by 30 percent in its first month of service and more than doubled the number of reservations in just their first five days after switching to SynXis’ technology.

U.S.-based SynXis brings a full range of services that enhances Design Hotels’ ability to better service its 100 member hotels and resorts worldwide under the brand Design Hotels™. From an easy-to-use central control center and using a single inventory, each hotel has the ability to update availability and rate information immediately to four distinct distribution channels: travel agents, third-party Internet travel sites, individual hotel Web sites, and central reservations systems.   

“We needed a very quick turn-around, and SynXis delivered,” said Claus Sendlinger, CEO of Design Hotels, a leading provider of marketing and global representation services for design-led hotels.  “SynXis implemented the system for us in just three weeks, a feat which normally takes 3 months.” 

“Design Hotels is a global group of forward-thinking hotels with a strong European base, and we are proud to have been chosen as its technology provider” said Elmer Coppoolse, Executive Vice President & COO of SynXis.  “SynXis is a good fit because we too offer forward-thinking superior technology.”

About Design Hotels
Design Hotels Inc. was established in 1993 to provide marketing and global representation services for design-led hotels worldwide. Subscribing to the view of design as a measure of living, not as a temporary trend, the company began to cooperate with innovative hoteliers and designers who share a similar vision. Thus, an international lifestyle brand was formed, synonymous with distinctive architecture and interior design, balanced with functionality and service: Design Hotels™.  Each member hotel caters to the modern traveler, reflecting the individual and the environment - a revolution in lifestyle hospitality.  In 1998, the company became a division of lebensart global networks AG, a marketing and technology specialist operating in the experience economy, which consistently addresses the same target group - the lifestyle or L-community. 

Today, Design Hotels Inc. is a global consortium of around 100 unique hotels and resorts spanning 35 countries.  With sales offices located in Augsburg, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Milan, New York, Tokyo, Sanur, and Scottsdale, Design Hotels Inc. is able to reach a qualified sector of the market.
