Dublin accommodation supply chain Hotel Industry Ireland has announced it will be opening up its online booking tool to other hotel companies to assist in booking hotels and other accommodation services.
Hotel Industry Ireland, which operates a number of hotels, said it was opening the booking tool “to other hotel booking companies in order to enable them to provide better and faster booking options to the hotel industry”.
The Dublin-based company said it has already seen the introduction of this online booking feature from the booking agents and hotel managers, but it will now open it to other booking companies and other supply chain partners.
Hotels are typically booked online by hotel booking agents, which can be contacted through their mobile phone app or via an online booking portal.
However, hotel booking agencies and booking agents are not always the same, as they often work with a host hotel or host manager.
Hotecom, the hotel booking agent for hotel management company Hotel Industry, said: “We are committed to helping the hotel sector, including our customers, improve their bookings experience and to help ensure the best possible service and booking experience for all.
Hotel industry body Dublin City Council has welcomed the initiative, which it said was aimed at increasing the number of hotel booking options available.”
We want to continue to provide the best service to our guests and to offer our guests the best booking experience in the hotel marketplace.”
Hotel industry body Dublin City Council has welcomed the initiative, which it said was aimed at increasing the number of hotel booking options available.
The council said the initiative was part of a wider initiative to ensure hotels were providing a quality service to their guests.
“Our city council is pleased to see Hotel Industry continuing to work with other suppliers and partners to enhance the hotel bookings platform, while also enhancing the hotel experience for guests,” Dublin City Councillor Shane Ryan said.
Hotcoco, the booking agent and supply chain partner for Hotel Industry and Hotel Management, said its “great to see our partners taking this initiative to support the hotel business and ensure the hotel market is being well served by all supply chain providers”.
Hoteliers’ unions welcomed the announcement.
Unite general secretary Peter McNamara said: “”It’s good to see more supply chain companies joining the Airbnb bandwagon.
Airbnb has made it easy for people to book their own accommodation and this will help us all make better bookings for our guests.
“But Airbnb is not the only supplier that is contributing to the supply chain, we have to look at all suppliers and supply chains in order for everyone to be doing their part to help Dublin’s hotels, including Airbnb, get the best deal.”
Hotels need to make sure they have the best and most reliable supply chains for the hotels they rent, and that this includes the supply chains that are part of the hotel supply chain.
Hotresource said it would be using the booking tools to help supply chain members and suppliers work together better.
Hotrexource said that “when booking your own accommodation online, we aim to offer the best experience for our clients.
We have worked closely with hotel booking agency Hotel Industry to ensure that they have access to the best available booking tools.
We will also continue to use the booking services in conjunction with other hotel supply chains to provide our guests with the best hotel booking experience possible”.”
Hotel management is a key part of our business and we know how important it is to offer high-quality customer service to all of our guests, as well as ensuring that our supply chain is providing the best accommodation to our customers,” Hotrexource added.
