for Central Reservation System Solution
Advantage of TravelCLICK’s Integrated Distribution Solution
CHICAGO (December 13, 2005) – TravelCLICK Inc., a leading provider of hotel business process management (BPM) solutions, announced today that The Island Hotel Newport Beach, previously branded under a major luxury group, has implemented the TravelCLICK iHotelier Central Reservation System (CRS) for website reservations. The Island Hotel removed their previous brand flag in favor of creating their own brand utilizing the full solution set from TravelCLICK including advanced CRS functionality, market intelligence and marketing services.
Located in the heart of the Newport Beach business district, The Island Hotel is a luxury 295-room property with a spa, two acclaimed restaurants and over 30,000 square feet of meeting space. This property required a website booking solution that could communicate the essence of its guest experience. The intuitive design of iHotelier’s dynamic OneScreen booking engine allows them to feature their guest rooms with rich room photography and captivating descriptions. With just one click, inventory and rates display in real time, all on one screen, creating a fully interactive shopping environment for guests.
“We’re creating a more dynamic website that will showcase all our property has to offer. iHotelier’s OneScreen is seamlessly integrated with our site and not only complements the site well, but also motivates the guest to book,” said Terri Reid, Director of Sales and Marketing for The Island Hotel. “The full spectrum of TravelCLICK distribution solutions enables us to build our own brand awareness and grow market share.”
The Island Hotel will also be using market intelligence and marketing services solutions from TravelCLICK to establish a fully integrated distribution management process. TravelCLICK consultants will apply industry best practices to the hotel’s business requirements in order to create a complete distribution business process with the goal of differentiating itself and driving high-profit revenue.
“The Island Hotel is a pace setting property in the independent hotel market,” said Jim Hayden, Vice President of Major Accounts at TravelCLICK. “It is taking an aggressive approach to distribution that will increase control, improve operating efficiency and allow it to effectively position and build its own brand.”
