HITEC: Pegasus Launches ContentHub
Pegasus Solutions has launched ContentHub at HITEC to simplify content management for hotels. The solution allows hotels to combine image and text updates to alternative (online) and global distribution systems (GDSs), ensuring content is kept current and accurate across all channels.
With a single management environment, ContentHub improves operational efficiencies, eliminating the need for hotels to load images and text into multiple systems using multiple tools. As a result of having rich, accurate, up-to-date content in more channels, hotels can engage more travelers and book more rooms.
Pegasus currently manages the largest repository of hotel descriptive content in the world with its Hotel Content Database (HCD), which houses images, property and room descriptions for approximately 90,000 hotels. With ContentHub, hotel descriptive content entered into the HCD by a hotel chain, either via XML Update Interface or through Pegasus’ Content Manager, will not only be used in online distribution, but also for managing content in the GDSs.
Traditionally, the HCD has pushed descriptive content to online travel agencies (OTA). With ContentHub, the HCD will also provide the same descriptive content, supplied through a single point of entry, to the four GDSs. The solution seamlessly integrates with VFM Leonardo VScape and with HCD tools such as Content Manager, Translation Services and MapViewer.
