HRS, the Global Hotel Solutions end-to-end technology provider in business travel, announces the signing of new multi-year agreement with Accor. The new contract represents a milestone for HRS and the prominent global hotel group, as HRS leads the effort to create a new model for corporate accommodation. Under terms of the agreement, HRS’ global corporate clients can use the direct connect technology to access the rates and terms from Accor properties across the spectrum of hotel categories.
Business travelers who are members of Accor’s loyalty program, Le Club AccorHotels (which will be enhanced by the end of the year under the new name of ALL- Accor Live Limitless) can also see value from this deal, as they can gain points and rewards when booking via HRS corporate channels.
HRS now works with more than 3,000 multi-national companies - including one-third of the Fortune 500 global list - on hotel procurement, transient, group and meeting bookings and payment solutions.
In April, Forbes Travel Guide presented Accor brands with 51 awards across its portfolio, focused on Accor’s four-and five-star properties in multiple countries. Accor, which has 4,900 hotels in 110 countries, is growing where business travel is on the rise: the brand has 1,153 new properties in its pipeline, 78% in emerging markets and more than half in the Asia/Pacific region.
