G6 Hospitality upgrades to advanced tech platform

G6 Hospitality, the parent company of Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands in the U.S. and Canada, has completed its transformation to a fully distributed, multicloud travel platform for distributed reservations, inline revenue management, channel/distribution management, call center and content-management capabilities.
The new platform, Above Property, has reimagined today’s siloed travel technology systems and brings a new level of speed, stability and scalability to the travel industry, according to G6. With more than 1,100 web services driving in excess of 10,000 unique features and capabilities, hoteliers can execute their business strategy with a level of flexibility not found in today’s legacy systems.
“For G6 Hospitality, this project and its successful completion represents our commitment to our franchisees and our more than 1,400 locations to provide the best technology in the industry,” G6 Hospitality EVP/CIO Jessie Burgess said in a statement. “It also represents the type of dedicated individuals we have within our technology and business organizations. Working within a well-defined budget and an aggressive timeline, they successfully executed this historic transformation through completion.”
Core legacy systems can be moved to the cloud, but the challenge is distributing both the processing power and the data while optimizing revenue and distribution, said Aaron Shepherd, CEO/co-founder of Above Property.
