DALLAS— Wyndham Hotels and Resorts recently entered a new agreement with Groups360 to bring instant online multi-room bookings to Wyndham hotels in 2023.
Powered by direct-booking solution GroupSync, Wyndham hotels will have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate the platform with their hotel reservation systems, providing travel planners – from groups and events to those managing infrastructure, logistics and corporate accounts – the ability to view best available rates and availability as well instantly book rooms online.
Wyndham has invested more than $100 million over the past three years in major technology initiatives to give franchisees “access to best-in-class offerings that unlock new efficiencies while helping to grow their bottom line,” said Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. “Bringing franchisees access to GroupSync is just the latest example and one we believe offers incredible opportunity for franchisees, particularly those in the economy segment, where such technology is an industry first.”
Hotel companies that publish live inventory and rates within the GroupSync Marketplace save travel planners valuable time by allowing them to search, shop and book blocks of rooms. Whether it’s for short, one-to-two-night group events like conferences, youth sports and family reunions, or multi-week infrastructure or logistics projects like commercial construction, bridge repair or highway expansion, GroupSync empowers planners to book their preferred hotel online instantly or quickly and easily through a Smart RFP.
“Wyndham is a major player in the hospitality industry with offerings that span every segment of the industry,” said Tim Flors, chief customer officer, Groups360. “Travel planners increasingly expect their hotel purchase experience to be seamless, instantaneous, and online. Wyndham’s deployment on GroupSync Marketplace does just that, all while saving hotels time and helping them better serve their guests.”
Planners can already book guest rooms and meeting spaces using Wyndham’s global properties via GroupSync’s Smart RFP, and group guest rooms are expected to start being available in GroupSync for instant, online booking later this year. All are a part of Wyndham’s Wyndham Business program, which aims to simplify business travel bookings through a suite of tools and resources.
