EZYield.com Provides Complete Distribution Solution for Aussie Hotel Chain, Metro Hospitality Group
The country’s oldest 100 percent Australian-owned and operated hotel chain expands its relationship with EZYield.com to streamline online distribution
EZYield.com, the originator of automated online distribution management solutions for the worldwide hospitality industry, has expanded its two-year-old partnership with Australia-based Metro Hospitality Group to include a complete distribution solution for the entire chain. Having provided channel management software for six of Metro’s hotels since 2007, EZYield.com has now been selected to provide comprehensive technological distribution services for the entire 14-property portfolio, with the roll-out beginning in early September.
In addition to EZYield.com’s channel management software, Metro Hospitality Group will implement EZYield.com’s RoomRez booking engine to provide real-time functionality for their corporate website. The chain will also utilize EZYield.com’s new GDSConnect application, and has switched global distribution system (GDS) suppliers in order to fully realize the benefits GDSConnect offers.
“We are delighted that Metro Hospitality Group has selected our entire suite of products to help optimize their online distribution,” stated Kevin Looney, commercial director of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East for EZYield.com. “Our existing relationship with Metro provided a perfect opportunity to present them with our integrated one-stop enterprise solution during their recent GDS and online booking software technology review.”
By fully integrating all three facets of EZYield.com’s distribution solution, hoteliers have the ability to amend rates or inventory through the booking engine and have that information automatically published to the GDS and their contracted online forward distribution channels. If connected to one of the many supported PMS interfaces, updates can occur with real-time availability across all distribution channels.
“Due to the history and organizational foundation we have at Metro, it was incredibly important that we choose a technology that is practical, efficient and has a support team to answer any questions that arise,” stated George Bedwani, COO of Metro Hospitality Group. “EZYield.com has earned our trust, so when the opportunity came to wrap the technology into one package, we listened and decided that implementing EZYield.com’s complete distribution solution was the best decision for our company.”
Further commenting on what the portfolio-wide integration means to system automation at Metro Hospitality Group, Looney continued, “Metro’s decision to implement PMS interfacing at the majority of their properties has enabled us to provide them with a virtual hands-off approach. Their employees no longer have to spend time updating the various systems manually or re-keying the bookings coming in.”
