Passkey International, Inc., one of the world’s leading online group reservation systems, announced that Atlas Hotels has agreed to implement Passkey at its two primary properties; the Kona Kai Resort & Spa and the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, both based in San Diego.

Atlas Hotels will be able to offer Passkey to all its planners and events, from weddings, corporate events and meetings, to conferences and conventions.

'Passkey provides us an important competitive edge in the meetings market,' said C. Scott Brown, director of IT services for Atlas Hotels. 'Passkey allows us to offer group planners and attendees the tools they need to ensure their events' success. From online group hotel reservations to real-time pick up reports, we are entering a new future of meeting services. Our staff can now stay focused on our customers' immediate needs.'

The implementation of Passkey aligns well with Atlas' mission to exceed planner expectations for event success. Planners will benefit tremendously from Passkey's custom event Web sites where attendees can make in-block hotel reservations, and planners will have 24/7 access to online event reports which enable planners to manage their event housing. With Passkey, Atlas Hotels can:

  • Offer group attendees online booking through custom event Web sites
  • Drive ancillary revenues from upselling hotel services and amenities to group attendees
  • Establish better room block optimization and reduce attrition exposure and wash
  • Offer planners access to real-time pick up and booking pace reports
  • Upload rooming lists in any format

'Atlas Hotels is a great addition to our growing network of Passkey-enabled hotels,' said Greg Pesik, president and CEO, Passkey International Inc. 'More and more hotels are realizing that Passkey is a must-have tool that planners are asking for. Not only does it offer powerful online hotel booking functions for groups, but importantly, it provides planners real-time access to their event housing status.'
