USA, Dallas, Texas. November 18, 2019

Onyx CenterSource, a leading global provider of B2B payments and business intelligence solutions to the hospitality industry, today announced the expansion of its partnership with Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group. The partnership began in 2010, when Accor chose Onyx CenterSource's CommPay™ solution to streamline and optimize the group's commission payment process.

Since the beginning of the partnership, Accor has implemented CommPay at more than 4,000 hotels across their portfolio, increasing the commission payment ratio to their travel partners to more than 99%. "We rely on Onyx expertise to provide our hotels an end-to-end commission payment and insights solution that increases efficiency and guarantees strong relationships with our agency partners. Accor is pleased to offer Onyx solutions to its new brands to ensure the same excellent results," said Ronny Burchhardt, Vice President, Digital Hotel Experience at Accor.

"Accor has seen tremendous growth throughout our partnership, including the acquisitions of Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel, and we've continued to expand our services alongside them," said Onyx CenterSource CEO Mark Dubrow. "As their needs evolve with their continued growth, we expect to enable deeper levels of market and partner insights that they need to continue their upward trajectory."

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
