Nyack, NY, United States, 2008/07/15 - Epoque Hotels announces that it has selected the EHBOX booking engine, considered by many travel trade analysts to be the industry’s most sophisticated and user-friendly system.
The EHBOX system is already live on Epoque’s website. Additionally, a comprehensive new EHBOX online travel agent section will be available on Epoque’s web site this fall.
The EHBOX system and its highly modern, sophisticated tools are intended to provide Epoque’s 300 member hotels with a more personalized and efficient way to communicate with travel agents, guests, corporate clients and meeting planners. Epoque expects that the EHBOX engine will better support hoteliers in achieving increased sales performances, boost efficiencies in managing groups and tour operators, and enable sales /marketing staff to better respond to industry trends.
“We invested in EHBOX because the system offers a very comprehensive travel agent section which is extremely valuable in helping our hotel members achieve their revenue goals,” said Juan Palmada, Vice President, Epoque Hotels. “For Epoque, the system’s innovative features will help us to increase web site traffic and boost our online brand presence.”
With EHBOX, hoteliers can customize and prioritize client and agent information (booking history, payment details, etc) in their databases to best suit their needs and goals. Heralded for many industry firsts, EHBOX permits hoteliers and agents to edit and/or update information with just “one click,” enabling users to change rates or post new information several times per day.
Additionally, by “talking” via the EHBOX travel agent extranet, hoteliers have an opportunity to create special rates, packages and other programs.
