Despite the global economy downturn, Compass Edge Reservation Service Provider (http://www. compass-edge. com) continues to gain popularity among hotels in Asia with an addition of fifteen (15) hotel contracts in the first quarter of 2009.
"There is no doubt hotels are now more careful in evaluating vendors and want to make sure for every dollar they invest, they receive a good return of investment (ROI). At Compass Edge, we use a consultative approach that we base upon the hotel's electronic distribution strategy and specific needs to suggest only the product and tool that matches exactly what the hotel wants. Hence, unlike typical reservation service providers that only sell their proprietary products, Compass Edge got a competitive edge for our hotel clients to choose what work best for them."
The new hotel additions include hotels in China, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. For a complete listing, please refer to Hotels in Asia (http://www. compass-edge. com/our-clients) .
"It is really encouraging to see positive result in our ability to generate incremental business for hotels using Compass Edge reservation services." Chantel Choa, Director of Compass Edge, reported: "Like The Bounty Hotel in Bali, it received twenty-two (22) online bookings just in the first two weeks of launch. The hotel is very excited about it and so are we! We will soon cutover a few key properties in Singapore and Bali and we expect to see similar results."
In addition to the fifteen (15) hotels utilizing Compass Edge's Central Reservation Systems (CRS) for Global Distribution Systems (GDS) Seamless Connectivity, Internet Booking Engine (IBE) and Internet Distribution Systems (IDS), there are two (2) hotels in Hong Kong now utilizing Compass Edge's Channel Management Tool to better manage all channels of distribution via a web-based application. This tool that provides unlimited updates to unlimited number of portals allows the hotels to free up resources in manually updating all the online travel agencies' (OTA) extranets to better focus on online strategy instead. This also provides the opportunity for these hotels to engage with more OTA and gain more market exposure and revenue online.
"At the end of the day, it is either cost-savings or business generation that matters to hotels. At Compass Edge, we strive to do both." Choa added. "There is no doubt the economy remains questionable in the short-term. However, we are positive that if we work with our hotels to "do the right thing" now, our hotel clients will be a step ahead of their competitors when the world turns upwards. We are very interested to work with hotels with the same vision and reap the rewards together!"
