Point A Hotels, currently distributing via HotelREZ’s widely recognised Global Distribution System (GDS) chain code, has partnered with Onyx CenterSource, a leading provider of B2B payments and business intelligence to the hospitality industry.
The partnership allows Point A Hotels, a family of modern hotels located in central London, to streamline its commission through the Onyx product, CommPay, allowing travel agencies to receive commission payments in a timely and accurate manner.
CommPay, provided by Onyx CenterSource, is a commission payments solution that supports a streamlined and transparent payment process for hotels and travel agents. The product allows hotels to verify, authorise, and track commission payments from their personal, online portal; greatly reducing the manual work associated with travel agent remittance.
Daniel Simmons, chief commercial officer, HotelREZ, commented:
“We’ve seen notable improvements in commission payments from hotel customers who utilise CommPay. Aside from a boost in travel agency satisfaction, CommPay allows UK-based hotels such as Point A Hotels, to pay commissions in GBP. The system automatically converts payment into the travel booker’s local currency, which is a tremendous advantage for both parties.”
Mark Dubrow, chief executive officer and president, Onyx CenterSource, added:
“We’re thrilled to extend this service to HotelREZ customers, including Point A Hotels. Travel agency relationships are of the utmost value to a hotel, and CommPay is a critical, cost-effective tool to help strengthen these relationships. We’re excited to see how implementation supports Point A Hotels’ properties in the future.”
