Bed and breakfasts can finally promote their rooms and availability on travel websites and to travel agents with minimum hassle.
Salem, UT (PRWEB) October 16, 2010
Convoyant LLC - makers of Reservation Nexus - the innovation leader in bed and breakfast reservation software - today introduced a lodging industry first with the release of their True Seamless GDS (TM) for bed and breakfasts, inns and hotels.
In the 1960s, the airline industry created the first GDS (Global Distribution Service) system to keep track of flights, availability and rates. They installed their systems with travel agents for automation and promotional purposes. Today the various GDS services help promote thousands of businesses in the airline, lodging and travel sectors via travel websites like Travelocity, Expedia, etc. and travel agents. Until the introduction of ResNexus' True Seamless GDS, lodging enterprises would spend hours setting up GDS in addition to experiencing extra workload to keep GDS up-to-date.
"We were floored with how much work innkeepers and general managers had to do to get up and running on GDS, especially while all the information GDS needed was already in their property management system. We were determined to streamline the process so that with very little effort, inns and hotels could list their properties on GDS with minimal work and time," says James Mayfield, President of Convoyant.
Convoyant - which has approximately 1100 reservation system customers - is the first bed and breakfast software provider to communicate seamlessly to GDS their clients' taxes, property information, policies, room rates, minimum nights, amenities, airports nearby, recommended restaurants, recommended activities and availability. Other systems in their market presently only communicate availability.
Vice President, Jeff Bryce notes, "At Reservation Nexus, we try to take a fresh approach to everything we do. True Seamless GDS sets a new standard for both the lodging and bed and breakfast industries."
