Following their merger in February, Travel Tripper and Pegasus have announced the combined entity will retain the 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 global distribution system and global sales solutions and business-intelligence tools. The full platform comprises:
- Pegasus reservations: A central-reservation system and booking engine with comprehensive distribution and smart rate-management tools to help hoteliers optimize their revenue strategy;
- Pegasus e-commerce: The industry’s first CRS-integrated solution for hotel websites and digital marketing, enabling hotels to maximize direct channel bookings;
- Pegasus global sales: An industry-leading corporate and consortia sales program helping partner hotels generate more than $300 million in GDS business annually;
- Pegasus intelligence: Powerful 360-degree insights on hotel revenue and distribution performance through a rich, interactive platform.
The system, which will be based on the underlying architecture of Travel Tripper's RezTrip CRS, natively includes some of the industry’s most innovative 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 online travel agencies, and flexible integrations with guest loyalty programs and hotel CRMs.
“The addition of Travel Tripper’s top-rated CRS and e-commerce solutions to the Pegasus platform allows us to give hotels more control over their reservations strategy than ever before,” Pegasus CEO Gautam Lulla said in a statement. “The breadth and depth of our platform provides the functionality, flexibility and scalability needed to help hotels strengthen their connections to guests and maximize revenue and profitability.”
The new Pegasus is headquartered in New York at the former Travel Tripper office, with secondary headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz., and London and additional global offices in Las Vegas; Paris; Frankfurt, Germany; Tokyo; and Hyderabad, India.
