Potential Sale of Sabre’s Hospitality Technology Division
Some rumors publicly traded Southlake, Texas-based Sabre Corporation, a provider of travel software and technology, may be looking to sell its hospitality segment. Sabre manages more than $260 billion in yearly global travel expenditure and provides services to clients in more than 160 nations.
Sabre has not yet responded to Hotel Technology News’ request for comment.
Can a software handle it all?
The in question sector offers software that enables hotels to manage properties, accept reservations online, and carry out other essential operations. Even while it represents a lesser portion of Sabre’s overall business, it is nevertheless significant.
In recent years, Sabre has increased its attention on developing its technology platform for hotels, notably through the SynXis Central Reservation system, which enables hotels to integrate their websites to take reservations. Hotels can use the solution to get rid of inconsistent reservation data. The business introduced its cloud-native property management solution, SynXis Property Hub, in September of last year. With the rollout, more than 450 properties, including over 90 select-service Wyndham Hotels & Resorts hotels in North America, were installed by Sabre’s launch clients for SynXis Property Hub.
Content, pricing, and availability, as well as configurable workflows, are all kept in one location with SynXis Property Hub. Making it easier for hoteliers to develop a uniform brand experience, this seeks to improve the in-stay visitor experience.
About the onboarding
Additionally, its simple layout speeds up staff onboarding and decreases the time needed to complete everyday tasks.
According to this article, Sabre purchased Nuvola in May, a well-known supplier of software for hotel service optimization and guest engagement to hotels all over the world. The deal comprised the integration of Nuvola employees with Sabre as well as Nuvola technology and guest enablement software.
It would be yet another indication that Sabre is trying to simplify its operations and concentrate on its core industries if the rumors were accurate. In recent years, the business has already sold off several non-core assets, including its online travel agency Travelocity.
If these most recent reports are real or not, only time will tell.
But if they are, it would be a significant advancement for hotel technology and may potentially alter the market for solution providers.
