Sabre SynXis to Fuel Italian Hospitality Giant's Growth

Zacks Equity Research

Sabre Corporation’s SABR SynXis Platform has been selected by Italian hospitality group Space Hotels as its distribution provider and partner for more than 60 affiliated hotels in Italy.

This partnership will help Sabre expand its reach to more than 60 independent, three- to five-star hotels in 35 Italian travel destinations.

The Sabre SynXis Platform's advanced technology will effectively update operations for Space Hotels’ current portfolio and help maximize revenues of direct and indirect channels. The platform will drive online bookings via the SynXis Booking Engine, as well as attract further bookings through third-party distribution channels via the Sabre travel marketplace.

Hospitality providers like Space Hotels require robust technology solutions and a broad network of channels to expand their reach and drive more conversions. SynXis Central Reservations distributes rates and inventory through online and offline distribution channels. Moreover, it provides connectivity to global distribution systems, online travel agents, website and mobile booking engines.  

Notably, Sabre Hospitality Solutions currently has more than 40,000 properties using its SynXis technology to power distribution, reservations, property management, retailing and guest experience solutions.
