Pegasus Solutions has introduced Pegasus Connect, a new solution suite that allows hotels to easily pick and choose services to fit any online marketing or distribution need.
Available for individual implementation with ŕ la carte pricing, or as a single, comprehensive, integrated solution, Pegasus Connect simplifies how hotels can leverage Pegasus’ varied offering of tools to drive hotel revenue.
Building off Pegasus’ connectivity to the global distribution systems (GDS), including TravelSky in China, and the alternative distribution systems (ADS), Pegasus Connect presents independent, group and chain hotels with the option to manage distribution, marketing, booking, and travel agency relationships through a single vendor. Nearly 100,000 hotels globally already connect through Pegasus.
“Our ‘connection’ goes beyond GDS and ADS connectivity,” said David Millili, chief executive officer of Pegasus Solutions. “We connect hotels to travel agent loyalty with commission processing. We connect hotels to guests anywhere with voice, web, mobile and social media in multiple languages. And, we connect hotels with corporate business through our rate solicitation services. Pegasus Connect brings all these connections to our clients under a single brand with concierge-type solution shopping, management and customer service.”
In addition to connectivity, Pegasus Connect will offer hotels reservation services leveraging RezView® NG, Pegasus’ award-winning central reservations system (CRS) built from the ground-up to thrive in today’s hotel shopping environment. Hotels can also tailor solutions to include website design services, mobile website development and applications, booking engine services, commission processing and fully integrated distribution.
“Pegasus Connect provides standalone solutions that clients can mix and match without the pressure of belonging to a brand or adhering to brand standards, or the cost of in-house solutions,” added Millili. “Additionally, the product comes with dedicated support that includes property, rate and distribution setup; best practice recommendations to optimize distribution and marketing strategies; multi-lingual 24x7 hotel support; and an experienced team of client services managers to help optimize revenue connections.”
