Achieves one of the largest same-day systems migrations in the history of the hospitality industry
SOUTHLAKE, Texas, May 2, 2019 – Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, announced recently that it has successfully completed the migration of La Quinta by Wyndham properties to the Sabre Hospitality Solutions industry-leading SynXis Platform.
This unprecedented migration, which was completed in early April, involved the simultaneous transition of La Quinta’s reservations software and property management system for more than 900 hotels, resulting in one of the largest same-day systems migrations in the history of the hospitality industry.
With the move, La Quinta joins Wyndham Hotel & Resorts’ 19 other hotel brands in operating on Sabre’s SynXis Platform, with all properties now operating on the platform’s central reservation systems (CRS) and call-center solutions, and the majority now operating on its property management system (PMS). In coordination with the migration, Wyndham also welcomed La Quinta’s more than 900 hotels to its award-winning loyalty program, Wyndham Rewards.
"This monumental transition to Sabre’s state-of-the-art platform affords our La Quinta franchisees increased stability, security and global distribution capability,” said Geoff Ballotti, president and chief executive officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “We are confident that the successful systems migration to the SynXis Platform – just under a year after acquiring La Quinta will help us deliver on expected synergies and drive added value to our franchisees.”
La Quinta hotels join the more than 40,000 hotels, resorts, and chains spanning 160 countries that are currently leveraging Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ technology to power distribution, reservations, property management, retailing and guest experience.
“Delivering new technology at scale for a renowned brand like La Quinta by Wyndham is a big milestone for Sabre, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and the hotel industry,” said Clinton Anderson, president of Sabre Hospitality Solutions. “Through our close collaboration, Sabre and Wyndham have demonstrated that hotel/technology partnerships can create both efficiency and growth. We’re proud to be the technology partner to the world's largest hotel franchising company and to offer a viable outsourced platform for hoteliers of this size.”
Sabre will continue to work with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and other hospitality industry customers to execute the next iteration of the SynXis platform that will include advanced retail, distribution and guest experience capabilities.
