Nairobi, Kenya (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
Hotel Link Solutions, the global experts in digital-marketing products for accommodation providers, has announced its newest partnership in Africa. Oryx Africa Ltd is now the exclusive sales agent of online solutions to local businesses in the hospitality sector in both Kenya and Tanzania. Oryx Africa Ltd is a destination-management company based in Nairobi with operations in both Kenya and Tanzania.
Hotel Link Solutions reached its agreement with Oryx Africa Ltd after previously starting operations in Uganda. All partners will roll out Hotel Link Solutions' tailor-made, state-of-the-art and cost-effective modular software solutions for the local hotel industry in their areas of expertise.
New and Growing Needs in a New and Growing Market
The combined Kenyan and Tanzanian market already has over 1,350 accommodations – many without a Web presence – with new establishments adding to the total every day, especially in response to the robust and expanding East African economy that has seen growing tourist numbers. Kenya alone anticipates 3 million tourists per year by 2017, a clear indicator of the region's business potential.
But global trends show that as traditional 'offline' tourism declines, travelers are increasingly reliant on their PCs, laptops, tablet computers and smart phones to make their travel arrangements (including booking accommodations) via online travel agencies and individual property-specific websites. This has put pressure on any accommodation keen on improving sales to have the best technology on offer, such as a multifunctional Web presence. Hotel Link Solutions provides the tools and services that can bring up to speed the whole spectrum of accommodation types, from hotels, lodges and camps to guesthouses and B&Bs.
Hotel Link Solutions Services
The Hotel Link Solutions suite of services is a comprehensive portfolio that includes channel-management systems, booking engines, booking widgets, mobile-enabled websites and professional social-media support, all of which can easily be brought to bear on a diverse range of property-management systems. It is innovative technology designed for ease of use and hardy enough to withstand the most taxing working environments.
In a world where online security is a critical consideration, "Our systems are secure and, for those in need, we additionally provide access to online payment gateways," said Mr. Justus Obegi, Director of Hotel Link Solutions Tanzania and Kenya. "We intend to roll out the products simultaneously in both Kenya and Tanzania, initially in the urban locations before reaching out to the countryside."
Hotel link Solutions has set its sights on developing win-win relationships with accommodation providers that enable them to meet the latest market trends and demands by offering cost-effective modular software packages. "Other than this, the hotel industry will enjoy the confidence of friendly accessible locally based Hotel link Solutions experts," added Obegi.
