Sabre Corporation has shed light on ‘Business Travel Services’ – Sabre Hospitality Solution’s new consolidated solution suite.

The new suite presents hoteliers with easy-to-use tools complete with time-saving automations and simplified processes; access to industry insights and expert guidance; and unlimited access to travel management companies and consortia partners.

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has been confirmed as one the very first hotel companies to utilise this new, game-changing solution.

Business Travel Services entails three historically separate elements that connect both sides of the corporate market. These include Nexus platform: A system of record for hotel groups, used to manage all corporate contracts, sales performance and planning across teams and properties; Sabre Hotel RFP: An exclusive lead-generation tool that manages corporate business travel for more than 2,700 of the most travelled companies in the world (corporate travel buyers make bids for properties to accept); and Consortia Services: A tool that provides access and services to hotels looking to complete submissions to the top 30 consortia programmes.

President, Sabre Hospitality Solutions, Clinton Anderson said: “As we listened to customers, it was clear there was a need for a more holistic approach to corporate hotel bookings. By combining our existing offerings and collaborating with IHG to further develop this solution suite, we will provide hoteliers, from enterprise to independent, the opportunity to make their rates available to a much broader audience.”

Meanwhile, senior vice president global sales, IHG, Derek DeCross remarked: “IHG has a long history of digital and technological innovation – and we’re currently rolling out our own hotel management tool, IHG Concerto, which allows us to partner with a range of solution providers. So, choosing to work with Sabre as an early adopter of their new Business Travel Services solution suite will ensure we can make all the benefits of IHG Concerto available to consortia and corporate travel partners too.

“Together we will be able to provide a more seamless service to customers and guests, designed to enhance usability, satisfaction, loyalty and revenue. As one of the first companies to use Sabre’s consolidated solution suite, we look forward to providing input to Sabre to influence the corporate booking space moving forward,” DeCross concluded.
Business Travel Services will be made available to hoteliers next summer.
