Hotel Booking Solutions and Pelican Systems
to Leverage Technologies to Provide a
Complete Distribution Solution
New Orleans and Singapore (July 7, 2004) - Hotel Booking Solutions L.L.C. and Pelican Systems, a division of HotelExchange, Pte. Ltd., announced an agreement today that will leverage the hotel distribution technologies of each company to provide a complete, automated distribution system. 

HBS will be providing supply-side connectivity (to property management systems and central reservations systems), and onward distribution channel connectivity.  “Pelican System has some great features and functions specifically focused at the travel agents and wholesalers,” said Stephen Burke, VP of Business Development for HBS. “hobooBox™ is probably the only product on the market with the functionality sophisticated enough to support the Pelican System functionality from an interfacing perspective. Not only is the connectivity piece important, but also a level of business logic necessary to make it all tie together in a seamless, automated fashion.”

“Partnering with HBS will provide a seamless interface with Pelican’s hotel PMS system, allowing instant access to room inventories and reduce the need for duplicate entries of confirmed reservations, ” said  Hartono Liman, Director of Pelican System.  “Pelican’s advanced rate structure and room allocation allows hotels to effectively manage rates and allotment to increase yield. The advanced capability of hobooBox to interface with our own dynamic rates and allotment database will provide many additional benefits to Pelican member hotels.” 

“We are truly pleased to partner with Pelican Systems and are looking forward to taking another step forward in leveraging technology to serve the needs of the global hotelier,” said Burke.
