Pegasus Rebrands Platform after Merger, Focuses on E-Commerce
Following the announcement of their merger in February 2019, Travel Tripper and Pegasus have announced that the combined entity will retain the storied Pegasus name, while introducing a new vision and rebranded platform that draws from both companies' respective strengths.
The new Pegasus moves forward with a platform that combines Travel Tripper's CRS, booking engine and e-commerce solutions with Pegasus's GDS and global sales solutions and business intelligence tools. The full platform includes:
- Pegasus Reservations —CRS and booking engine with comprehensive distribution and smart rate management tools to help hoteliers optimize revenue strategy.
- Pegasus E-commerce — CRS-integrated solution for hotel websites and digital marketing, enabling hotels to maximize direct channel bookings.
- Pegasus Global Sales — Corporate and consortia sales program helping partner hotels generate more than $300 million in GDS business annually.
- Pegasus Intelligence — 360-degree insights on hotel revenue and distribution performance through an interactive platform.
At the heart of the rebranded platform is the Pegasus CRS, a cloud-based reservations system that aims to offer flexibility, scalability, security and support in managing rates and inventory and providing fast global distribution across a wide network of channel partners.
The system, which will be based on the underlying architecture of Travel Tripper's RezTrip CRS, natively includes its rate management tools and features. This includes dynamic pricing rules and enhanced formula-based pricing controls, geographic pricing, multi-property rate plan management, multi-rate plan reservations, integrated price checking with OTAs, and flexible integrations with guest loyalty programs and hotel CRMs.
This comprehensive platform is designed to serve a wide range of properties, including independent hotels, large chains and brands, and casinos and integrated resorts, on their complete distribution and e-commerce needs.
The new Pegasus is headquartered in New York at the former Travel Tripper office, with secondary headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ and London and additional global offices in Las Vegas, Paris, Frankfurt, Tokyo, and Hyderabad, India. The company serves customers in 120 countries around the world.
