Cendyn Launches the Cendyn Hospitality Cloud for Hoteliers Looking to Drive Direct Bookings
The first applications available on the Cendyn Hospitality Cloud are Starling customer data platform (CDP) and Cendyn’s website content management system (CMS)
Cendyn, a catalyst for digital transformation in the hospitality industry, is excited to announce the launch of the new Cendyn Hospitality Cloud, including the release of the platform’s first applications, an industry-leading website content management system (CMS) powered by Cendyn’s customer data platform (CDP), Starling.
At a time when hoteliers must do more with less, hotels are embracing rapid digitization and automation of products and services to keep up with ever-evolving consumer expectations. The challenges are especially acute in eCommerce as hotels confront major shifts in travel from business to leisure, the ongoing struggle to gain direct bookings, and the ability to target new types of guests in a competitive market with evolving stay preferences.
The Cendyn Hospitality Cloud is an integrated, cloud-based platform that empowers revenue, eCommerce, distribution, marketing, and sales teams with a single source of truth. The platform offers a unified view of every guest and a system of record for rates and reservations. Combining these critical data elements in one platform ensures teams across the business can act on their data to automate, personalize, and transform the experience for every guest at every step in their journey.
In conjunction with the launch of the Cendyn Hospitality Cloud, Cendyn is also releasing the platform’s first applications – website CMS and Starling CDP. Powered by the CDP, Cendyn’s CMS puts the industry’s most sophisticated tools at your fingertips, allowing hoteliers to drive more direct bookings by serving personalized content, offers, and imagery to their website visitors by leveraging the power of their first-party data. The seamless integration between the CMS and CDP sets Cendyn apart to leverage cleansed and de-duped data from the master guest profile to recognize returning visitors and deliver the most targeted personalization available on the market.
“We have been busy innovating over the past 18 months and the commercial launch of this platform is incredibly exciting. Powered by Starling CDP, our eCommerce offering now brings a new level of personalization and merchandising to the hotel shopping experience. Our enhanced CMS enables hotels to target specific content, visuals and offers to website visitors based on their preferences and behavior, positioning our customers to drive guest engagement, loyalty, and profitable revenue growth via their direct booking channel,” said Tim Sullivan, CEO & President at Cendyn.
