Gains Momentum and Customer Approval
|DALLAS, TX - June 17 – SynXis, a Sabre Holdings
(NYSE:TSG) company, today introduced RedX, the new name for the next-generation
distribution management system that was recently launched and is now in
use by 500 hotels around the world.
“We wanted to give the new product a name to differentiate it from our classic systems and make it stand out from the competition,” explained Bill Nicholson, president and general manager, SynXis. “After doing some market research, we realized the best name was literally right in front of us the whole time. The ‘RedX’ is something that has been used in the SynXis name and collateral since the company’s inception in 1996.”
New functionality is frequently added to RedX based on customer feedback and the needs of the marketplace. The latest features include a dynamic packaging component that enables properties to sell multiple revenue sources such as golf, spa services and food and beverage all on the same booking. This feature is available on the booking engine and the direct voice application so reservation agents can also sell packages.
Another in-demand feature recently released is the Group and Wholesaler Rooming List Import functionality. Hotels can import multiple reservations for groups or wholesalers into RedX from any spreadsheet and save time and costly errors when those reservations are then delivered directly into the property management system via an interface.
“Being an industry leader, SynXis is in a unique position to shape the direction that distribution management will take in the future,” commented Nicholson. “We will continue investing in our products and services to ensure RedX meets our customers’ needs both now and into the future.”
