Hotelzon and Hotel Booking Solutions
Join Forces
HELSINKI, FI and NEW ORLEANS, LA (November 24, 2003) – Hotelzon, a leading provider of innovative technologies designed to aggregate and integrate multiple sources of hotel inventory into a single solution to be used by distribution channels worldwide has teamed up with Hotel Booking Solutions to enable hotels to efficiently connect and effectively manage distribution across an ever growing number of distribution channels worldwide.
“Certainly the number of channels a hotel must manage is increasing. However it’s the integration of these channels into an existing revenue management and distribution strategy that becomes the ultimate challenge. Partnering with Hotel Booking Solutions and their product hobooBox combines one of the most advanced products in the client end with the very best in the hotel end.” says Erik Floman, President of Hotelzon.  ”Together with our other partnerships, this will build the basis for an unmatched solution”

Under this agreement, Hotelzon will continue to expand its current portfolio of 55,000 hotels worldwide with real time rates and availability by tapping directly into hotel PMS and CRS inventories.  In addition, Hotelzon will leverage Hotel Booking Solutions’ premier channel management module hobooBox, designed to support the evolving relationships between hoteliers and distribution channels by introducing new capabilities never seen before.    

“Issues of duplication and fragmentation within the hotel distribution arena are and will continue to be a key focus of hotels as this industry continues to adapt to emerging technologies.”  Stated Darin McAuliffe, President of Hotel Booking Solutions llc.  “We are excited to be selected as a solutions partner of Hotelzon, their service and technologies are setting a new standard in the industry”.
