Thailand’s Compass Hospitality added Fornova’s distribution-intelligence solution to every hotel in its portfolio. The Bangkok-based hotel company operates four hotel brands, including Compass and Citrus, in Southeast Asia and various locations throughout the United Kingdom, for a total of 50 properties with more than 5,000 keys.

Fornova’s patented distribution-intelligence solution provides hotel chains with control over their distribution channels, enabling them to maximize net revenue per available room on every room, every time and protect rate parity. 

“We want our operations to be as efficient and as effective as they can be, and automation is a key part of that,” Rabin Kumar, Compass Hospitality’s corporate GM, digital marketing, said in a statement.
