IHG and Amadeus to create next generation reservations – Next Generation Bookings>>>:
The new Next Generation Bookings system is going to be using the cloud-model and will replace HOLIDEX, IHG’s proprietary reservation system. The next-generation GRS evolves IHB systems, and connect to GRS and hotels directly through a separate, state of the art interface. It will be a first of its kind, standardized, scalable and flexible global technology eco-system, which will provide significant value to guest and owners.
Richard Solomons, Chief Executive Officer of IHG commented when announcing the partnership: “The next-generation guest reservation system we will create with Amadeus will deliver a powerful global platform for hotels to manage guest interaction, will be intuitive for hotel teams, and will help us accelerate our work to revolutionize and personalize the guest experience through technology.”
Luis Maroto, President & Chief Executive Officer of Amadeus in his response answered: “Travellers today expect a great experience wherever they are and technology can play a key role in delivering that. IHG has exciting ambitions for its hotels and guests and Amadeus is proud that our innovative technology will play a key role in delivering them. The new systems will provide a huge leap forward in the flexibility and functionality available to hoteliers.”
