By the end of April 2012, all 130 members of the Ringhotels hotel consortium will go live with Trust International, and will be represented by Trust in the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) Amadeus, Sabre, Worldspan, Galileo, and the Pegasus database HCD.

The hotels will use TourOnline’s channel management system, DIRS21, which Ringhotels has been rolling out to its members since January 2012, to connect to Trust.

“Our new partnership with TourOnline and Trust gives us direct connections to the hotel booking portals used by our target market and important global distribution channels, as well as a system which gives the hotels the functionality they need,“ said Susanne Weiss, Executive Board Member of Ringhotels e.V.

Ringhotels‘ decision to change its central reservations system resulted from the consortium’s development strategy for its business and its online presence. Since 2008 there has been a continual development process, at the core of which is the improvement of the online presence of the consortium.

“By choosing TourOnline, Ringhotels has the ideal partner to provide access to Trust’s global distribution channels. We are delighted to gain these two major players in Germany’s mid-sized hotel sector,” said Richard Wiegmann, Managing Director of Trust International.

David Heidelberg, TourOnline’s CEO, also believes strongly in the new
cooperation: “The combination of our experience in the independent, mid-sized hotel sector, with Trust’s market-leading technology for international distribution, provides the perfect solution for Ringhotels.”
