NEW YORK and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — YTL Hotels, which owns a collection of unique luxury hotels and resorts in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and beyond, today announced an expanded partnership with hospitality solutions provider TravelClick. This long-term partnership will maximize transactions and drive revenue for ten of its world-class properties through the use of TravelClick’s market-leading iHotelier suite of reservations solutions.
Through the relationship, YTL Hotels’ properties will not only have access to TravelClick’s world-class iHotelier Central Reservations System (CRS), but the company’s entire suite of reservations solutions including TravelClick Channel Management, iHotelier Property Management System (PMS) Integrations, iHotelier GDS, iHotelier Web 3.0, and iHotelier Mobile.
YTL Hotels first implemented iHotelier and TravelClick’s web reservations solution three years ago. Since that time, the booking engine has proven to be extremely instrumental in YTL Hotels’ growth strategy, enabling them to increase web bookings.
"TravelClick offers the most compelling and competitive solution in the industry, and there is no question they remain our CRS of choice among all the other competing technologies out there," said Luke Hurford, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, YTL Hotels. "TravelClick’s solutions have ultimately helped to strengthen our digital brand and increase bookings through our ‘owned’ channels, and we’re pleased to expand our partnership with the company."
"YTL Hotels has learned first-hand the impact iHotelier can have on their brand presence," said Paul Southey, Vice President of Asia Pacific, TravelClick. "Because of the company’s collection of resorts in Malaysia and beyond, they require a sophisticated and robust distribution system that effectively allows them to market their services to discerning travelers. We’re thrilled to see that after three years, they have decided to expand their relationship with TravelClick. This is validation that our solutions have helped YTL Hotels to create a stronger brand and generate increased revenue."
TravelClick’s technology solutions will be utilized at the following ten properties: Cameron Highlands Resort in Malaysia; The Majestic Malacca in Malaysia; Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia; Gaya Island Resort in Malaysia; Tanjong Jara Resort in Malaysia; The Green Leaf Niseko Village in Japan; Spa Village Resort Tembok in Bali; Vistana Kuala Lumpur Titiwangsa in Malaysia; Vistana Kuantan City Centre in Malaysia, and Vistana Penang Bukit Jambul in Malaysia.
