Sabre Hospitality brings all services under new hotel platform, device responsive tech in pipeline
Sabre Hospitality Solutions is developing a Hotel Enterprise platform designed to bring all services from property management, central reservations, revenue and the RFP process together.
The hotel platform will be provided as a software-as-a-service solution bringing all currently disparate solutions into one place.
Revealing the developments at the 2012 Customer Forum, Sabre Hospitality president Felix Laboy says:
“It will be cloud-based, that’s why we acquired SoftHotel. We want to converge all those services and provide in a single platform through the portal. It will pretty much eliminate the property management system.”
The platform is part of a series of initiatives Sabre Hospitality is working on in 2012 which also includes an innovation website.
The website aims to encourage its 550-strong team around the world to submit ideas on how to improve processes and suggest innovations for hotel customers.
The company has also been working on a device responsive platform enabling hotels which optimises hotel content to whatever device consumers are accessing it from.
