Trust International further enriches its Trust|Connect Internet Distribution Service (IDS) with the activation of a direct connection to DerbySoft.

The interface between the companies' platforms will enable distribution of real-time rates and inventory from Trust International's portfolio of hotel clients to buyers on the DerbySoft system, including hundreds of previously inaccessible travel agents and Web sites within China as well as other demand channels across the globe.

The new Trust|Connect IDS channel will allow travelers to access all of Trust's hotels worldwide via local booking sites that they know and are comfortable using.

"DerbySoft is pleased to partner with Trust International to provide their extensive range of hotels with the ability to deliver their rates and inventory to Chinese channels," said David Revelle, DerbySoft's director of business development. "Chinese travelers appreciate the efforts of hotel distributors to use domestic distribution channels, so we're proud to make that process seamless and cost-effective, while at the same time driving revenue for Trust International and its hotel groups."

"The Chinese market is very important to us and continues to grow rapidly," said Richard Wiegmann, chief operating officer, Trust International. "We anticipate that the DerbySoft interface will be very advantageous to us in increasing our visibility, penetration and revenues in China to help us continue our growth momentum there while providing cost efficiencies for distribution of real-time rates and inventory in China.  In Trust's ongoing quest to provide best of breed products and services to customers, this interface with DerbySoft is one more example of how we are continually adding solutions that not only improve our interfaces and maximize resources, but also help customers improve services and reduce costs."
