TORONTO, CANADA – Leonardo announced its partnership with Pentahotels for VScape Distribution Connectivity, a solution that helps hotel chains easily organize their images for storage, retrieval and distribution to VNetwork, the world’s largest network of travel websites.
Pentahotels represents a new generation of hotels. Known for its unique interior design and “neighbourhood” feel, the lifestyle brand stands for true innovation in the industry’s four-star segment.
With a focus on delivering comfort and style to leisure and business travellers, Pentahotels’ properties need to be well represented on GDS and third-party booking channels.
“Hotel images are one of the most important considerations for consumers researching and booking hotels online,” explained Paolo Boni, CEO of Leonardo. “We are pleased to be able to work with Pentahotels and deliver on our promise to help hotel chains better source, manage, organize, store and publish their media assets to the largest network of travel websites.”
Pentahotels was familiar with Leonardo’s legacy solution, VScape Lite, back in 2015. Based on this experience, they decided to subscribe to VScape Distribution Connectivity. As a client of Sabre Hospitality Solutions (SHS), their images from VScape are now also sent to SynXis CR for use on their booking engine.
Collectively, VScape Distribution Connectivity helps Pentahotels with the processing, normalizing and distribution of their images, to ensure that channels in the VNetwork are able to easily consume, update and refresh hotel chain content.
“Having worked with Leonardo in the past, we know they have strong partnerships with third-party channels,” said Heiko Rieder, Vice President Revenue Management & Reservations at Pentahotels. “For this reason, we felt comfortable working with Leonardo and leveraging VScape Distribution Connectivity. We believe it can deliver the results we desire.”
