Instant online multi-room booking will be available in Wyndham Hotels & Resorts‘ properties in 2023.
The company announced today a new agreement with Groups360, maker of GroupSync™, a direct booking solution. Wyndham hotels will have the opportunity to integrate the platform with their hotel reservation systems, providing travel planners – from groups and events to those managing infrastructure, logistics and corporate accounts – with the ability to view best available rates and availability as well as instantly book rooms online.
“Over the last three years, Wyndham has invested over $100 million in major technology initiatives, giving our franchisees access to best-in-class offerings that unlock new efficiencies while helping to grow their bottom line,” said Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Bringing franchisees access to GroupSync is just the latest example and one we believe offers incredible opportunity for franchisees, particularly those in the economy segment, where such technology is an industry first.”
Hotel companies that publish live inventory and rates within the GroupSync Marketplace save travel planners time by allowing them to search, shop and book blocks of rooms. GroupSync allows planners to quickly and easily book their preferred hotel instantly online or through Smart RFP.
“Wyndham is a major player in the hospitality industry with offerings that span every segment of the industry,” said Tim Flors, chief customer officer, Groups360. “Travel planners increasingly expect their hotel purchase experience to be seamless, instantaneous, and online. Wyndham’s deployment on GroupSync Marketplace does just, all while saving hotels time and helping them better serve their guests.”
Planners can already book guestrooms and meeting spaces using Wyndham’s global properties via GroupSync’s Smart RFP and group guestrooms are expected to start being available in GroupSync for instant, online booking later this year.
