Pegasus Solutions’ core business is hotel reservation and distribution technology, including its hotel switch, but the company is getting involved in airline, rail, cruise and vacation rental reservations, too.

Privately held Sabre Holdings — heretofore organized into Sabre Travel Network, Travelocity and Sabre Airline Solutions — introduced a new business division, Sabre Hospitality Solutions, over the summer and is readying a “hard launch” of the unit in early 2010.

One of the early fruits of the creation of SHS is that the unit has been able to blend technologies from SynXis and E-site Marketing to offer hotels mobile websites and mobile booking capabilities.
