for Central Reservation System Solution
drive reservations for internationally ranked golf course and resort
CHICAGO (January 4, 2006) – TravelCLICK Inc., a leading provider of hotel business process management (BPM) solutions, announced today that Carton House, a 160-room luxury resort recognized for its internationally ranked golf courses, has selected the TravelCLICK iHotelier Central Reservation System (CRS) for website reservations and GDS connectivity as it opens its doors in 2006.
Located only 14 miles outside of Dublin, Carton House is one of Ireland’s greatest estates. According to Golf Digest, it is home to one of Ireland’s top ten golf courses, The Montgomerie, a unique “inland links” style course. As Carton House expands to include a luxury hotel, it needed a CRS that could communicate the essence of its guest experience to the international market – from its dramatic Irish landscapes to the grandeur of its 17th century estate.
“The iHotelier CRS solution allows us to manage our global electronic distribution program on one global platform,“ said James Tynan, General Manager for Carton House. “Compared to other systems, we were impressed by iHotelier’s marketing power combined with the ability to easily measure booking performance.”
Carton House will implement iHotelier CRS including the OneScreen booking engine and GDS connectivity. Performance-rich FLASH enables OneScreen to show the Carton House property through a single, dynamic booking screen. With just one click, inventory and rates will be displayed in real time, creating a fully interactive shopping environment for international shoppers. Carton House rated iHotelier high on its comprehensive graphics capabilities, multi-language support, email marketing tools and dynamic packaging capabilities.
“We are excited to have Carton House as our first iHotelier hotel in Ireland,” said Jan Tissera, President of TravelCLICK International. “Their progressive use of electronic distribution and the innovative marketing tools that iHotelier provides will set the electronic distribution standard for other high-profile resorts targeting international guests.”
