Pegasus Solutions has introduced new availability and pricing displays for its HotelFactory central reservation system (CRS), including a Calendar View, Table View and Inheritance View. These upgrades are introduced to HotelFactory following a nearly 90 percent jump in enrollment this year, including a 435 percent increase in the Asia-Pacific region alone.

HotelFactory's new upgrades will help the more than 5,400 hotels worldwide using the product, maximize revenue and growth with access to the most up-to-date and reliable CRS tailored to the needs of smaller chains and hotel groups.

The availability views improve HotelFactory's ease of use by offering various options for managing inventory and monitoring a property's status at-a-glance with one-page display, color-coded true availability displays, one-click inheritance sourcing for pricing structures and rate values, reservation rankings and detailed restriction displays. Part of the offering for representation with Unirez by Pegasus, HotelFactory is an easy-to-use integrated suite of management and distribution tools with an integrated Internet booking engine.

Robert Bayless, creator of HotelFactory and Pegasus vice president of product management, says the new upgrades maximize the product's ability to lead the industry in processing alternative distribution system and global distribution system (GDS) messages for hotels, travel agents and travel consumers.

A third of HotelFactory's portfolio is in the Americas region, a third is in Europe, and a third is in the Asia-Pacific region, which has seen the greatest recent enrollment increase. Earlier this year, the product also introduced improvements allowing hotels using HotelFactory to make rates and inventory available to travel agents with the "next generation seamless" technology being implemented by the GDSs.

Pegasus will be conducting comprehensive training programs for HotelFactory and its new features in major sites around the world through two courses, including "HotelFactory" and "Optimize Your Room Revenue."
