NEW YORK—TravelClick, a global provider of revenue generating solutions for hoteliers, has acquired EZYield, a provider of distribution management solutions for hotels. This move will improve hotels’ ability to grow distribution reach and manage reservations electronically.
EZYield’s integrated solutions suite allows hotels to send and update availability, rates and inventory on more than 650 travel websites via an online portal, as well as electronically receive reservations directly into hotels’ data management systems. Eventually, the products will be integrated into TravelClick’s iHotelier central reservations systems, as well as other property management systems and central reservations systems, so hotels can manage rates, inventory and reservations simultaneously across all distribution channels.
James Filsinger, former CEO of EZYield, will lead TravelClick’s combined channel management business and report to Jonathan Cherins, EVP and GM of reservations solutions. The company will remain in Orlando.
