PARIS — Accor and Sabre Corporation have announced plans to create the first unified central-reservation and property-management platform for the global hospitality industry.
In collaboration with Accor, Sabre intends to develop a new full-service property-management capability and enrich its existing central-reservation and limited-service property-management systems. These capabilities will combine within a new unified cloud-native, highly flexible platform built for and available to hoteliers across all property classes and geographic regions.
In this context, Accor would be Sabre’s newest enterprise hospitality customer, adopting Sabre’s industry-leading SynXis Central Reservation system and, ultimately, the new global technology platform for all of its hospitality brands and geographies.
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Accor and look forward to redefining the guest experience together. We know our customers have historically had limited options in this area and we’re taking the lead to deliver the solutions hoteliers have repeatedly told us they both want and need,” says Sean Menke, president and CEO of Sabre Corporation. “Once developed, this offering will power a new generation of retailing, distribution and fulfillment solutions that will enable hotels to drive revenue growth beyond traditional sources and offer unique personalized services to their guests around the world.”
“For Accor, the new technology will bring an opportunity to further and significantly enhance the Group’s core business activities, including hotel distribution, guest recognition and owner relationships,” says Gilles de Richemond, Chief Information Officer, Accor.
