In the course of the partnership, around 70 hotels of the TUI portfolio will use Sabre’s platform solution, including SynXis Central Reservations (CR) and Channel Connect, to enable its new distribution strategy. The group will benefit from the Sabre SynXis Platform’s advanced technology to streamline its operations and grow its footprint globally, while securing an effective, future-ready channel strategy that will help maximize revenue from both direct and indirect channels.
In collaboration with Sabre, TUI’s hotel division will explore opportunities for product innovation and distribution growth, while charting a new path toward full digitalization. Through their combined expertise in the leisure segment, TUI and Sabre will seek to implement an innovative revenue generation strategy that will help fuel travel’s recovery and anticipate future business needs.
“In a changing hospitality marketplace, our objective is to create a winning engagement model that strengthens our core offering – unique holiday experiences,” said Martin Schreck, chief information officer sourcing & assets, TUI Group. “To do this, we are enhancing our technology, while focusing on futureproofing our business. Sabre’s technology will help enable us to fully automate our guest operations – including booking, setting up and amending guest offers – enabling our staff to focus on providing unique, personalized stays. Sabre’s response to the shifting landscape of hospitality, along with its robust, stable and agile platform, will help us secure our recovery and build on our guest experience.”
