A new distribution and marketing service for small and medium-sized hotels and groups has been launched by Amadeus called Amadeus LinkHotel.
LinkHotel provides reservation tools, marketing services and automated commission handling, as well as advanced global and internet distribution systems and a distribution optimisation analysis.
The service also offers a range of consultancy services to aid hoteliers with distribution trends such as opaque business models, corporate contracting, and best available rate compliance programmes.
City Lodge Hotel Group has selected the LinkHotel service in a bid to capitalise on the global reach of the service.
The company said it plans to increase its global footprint with its services and is also offering a reseller programme for wider markets.
Amadeus said all the new and existing hotel members tapped by Otedis will be migrated into the new enhanced distribution platform.
Otedis is the hotel representation company acquired by Amadeus in 2005.
Amadeus is a travel technology partner and transaction processor for the travel and tourism industry.
