SAP integrates TravelRes in their Travel Management System
Nuremberg, 20 February 2008 – TravelRes, the free of charge online hotel reservation service offering 210,000 hotels worldwide, has been certified by SAP®. The application can now be integrated directly into the SAP® Travel Management software. By this, corporate customers using this solution can automatically access TravelRes’ portfolio.
The SAP® Travel Management tool offers an all-in-one solution for the organisation of business trips, from the request and the online reservation to the invoicing, all in one. Of course, this Travel Management tool is integrated into the SAP® application, working independently from any complicated interfaces. Using the SAP® Travel Management tool, sales conditions can be optimised, and travel costs can easily be analysed. The platform also offers a reliable data base for cost strategy forecasts.
hotel.de with its international brand TravelRes runs a free of charge hotel reservation service for companies and private users on www.hotel.de,
www.hotel.ch. The company offers 210,000 hotels worldwide to be booked online. Since January 2007, hotel.de has also been offering conferences. Therefore, the company had taken over the conference data base, the online booking tool and the customer base of intergerma Marketing GmbH & Co. KG. Compared to other booking channels, hotel.de/TravelRes customers benefit from considerable cost savings (for business customers up to 40%). Additionally, all available rates for every single hotel are always displayed (e.g. promotional rates, corporate or weekend rates), so that the customer can choose the lowest or best-fitting rate. Another major advantage of hotel.de/TravelRes is the fact that booking confirmations are sent right into the hotel’s computer - making a reservation fast, safe and reliable. This is enabled by hotel.de/TravelRes’ unique integration of the hotels' central reservation systems (so-called CRS) under one consistent user surface. Well-known companies, such as Procter & Gamble, SAP AG, Texas Instruments Inc. And Ernst & Young AG already use the hotel.de/TravelRes corporate application.
TravelRes is the international brand of hotel.de AG. This brand was established in 2006 for pushing ahead its expansion into the European countries. In this context the company has also reserved all relevant country domains. For supporting customer and hotel acquisition hotel.de has already set up offices in London, Paris and Barcelona, to be followed by other important countries. The strong customer loyalty and the high ratio of business customers facilitate hotel.de´s entry into the new markets as many foreign-based subsidiaries or parent enterprises of German companies contracted by hotel.de already have been using TravelRes since its activation. Therefore this clientele are the first potential customers. The aim is to establish TravelRes as the leading online hotel reservation service for business customers in the foreign markets mentioned and – step by step – in Europe as a whole.
