La Quinta hotels selects Pegasus

La Quinta has signed an agreement with Pegasus Solutions to begin implementation of the RezView central reservation system for all La Quinta Inns and La Quinta Inn & Suites.

This deal makes La Quinta one of the largest hotel chains to use RezView CRS. Pegasus has been providing La Quinta with electronic distribution and commission processing services since 1996.

Under this new agreement, Pegasus will work with Keane Inc. to seamlessly integrate RezView CRS into La Quinta's business infrastructure including its loyalty program, Web site booking engine and data warehouse. Pegasus will also implement a two-way interface into La Quinta's property management system to provide a centralized, single-image of its inventory, rates and reservations.

"RezView CRS provides us with a system that has the flexibility to meet the demands of more than 500 properties and the scale to enable us to grow as we continue to expand our business," said Wayne Goldberg, La Quinta president and chief executive officer. "Pegasus Solutions has proven itself as a trusted vendor and we are confident this relationship will complement and enhance La Quinta's business strategy going forward."

RezView CRS is the most widely used CRS worldwide with more than 7,500 properties including others operated by The Blackstone Group, the private-equity firm that owns La Quinta.

"La Quinta's selection of RezView CRS demonstrates how Pegasus can serve hoteliers through a wide range of services that help them keep pace with today's technology," said Mike Kistner, Pegasus chief operating officer. "This significant deal represents a new focus at Pegasus--aligning with the best technology firms to deliver complex solutions. Our customers gain the benefit of the great ideas and skills we bring in addition to a seamless implementation of the solutions."
An award winning reservations service, RezView CRS is used by 60 of the world's top hotel brands processing approximately 50,000 reservations everyday.
