Deutsche Hospitality presents new MICE booking software

Deutsche Hospitality 15 May 2018
The IMEX in Frankfurt am Main is one of the world's leading fairs for incentive travel, meetings and events. When this year's exhibition gets underway today, Deutsche Hospitality will be on hand to present a new booking software that enables business customers to reserve conference rooms directly online without having to obtain a cost estimate from the hotel beforehand. The aim is to make this service available to clients of all Deutsche Hospitality brands before the end of the year once a successful piloting phase has taken place. Such a move will make Deutsche Hospitality the first hotel company to offer a dedicated and self-developed online booking facility for conferences and events that meets the requirements of both parties involved.As well as continuing to permit the submission of non-binding enquiries and the direct rebooking of conference rooms, this new digitalisation offensive will also enable customers to filter preferences, use their own ideas as a source of inspiration and seek guidance from existing provision. In developing this software, Deutsche Hospitality is further enhancing the independence it enjoys in the field of direct sales and demonstrating that it possesses the necessary agility to achieve success in the digital age. These endeavours will be complemented by the availability of various opportunities for personalisation during the upcoming test phases. All visitors to the group's websites will thus be able to enjoy a precisely tailored experience.

H.E.A.D. GmbH supports Centro Hotel Management GmbH with the digitalisation of procurement

Deutsche Hospitality 7 March 2017
The procurement company Hotel Equipment and Design GmbH (H.E.A.D.) has acquired a further customer for its services in the form of the Hamburg-based Centro Hotel Group. Centro has decided to digitalise its procurement processes and, having conducted extensive market research, is introducing the electronic system "H.E.A.D.@web". Following a brief introductory phase of two to three months, the tool is fully implemented. It then provides holistic, digital and intuitive mapping of each component of the procurement process from sourcing to audit and thus replaces all manual procedures. The e-procurement tool offered by H.E.A.D. has been designed to cover every aspect of purchasing and is aligned to the requirements of hotel chains. Users can achieve autonomy by integrating the products of their existing suppliers into the system. The platform also gives access to products and prices made available centrally to all clients by H.E.A.D. This enables all H.E.A.D.@web users to benefit from quantity discounts and particularly favourable conditions. One function which remains unique on the market is the option of carrying out joint invitations to tender. This "collaborative sourcing" allows further savings to be achieved."H.E.A.D.@web assists us in our endeavours to digitalise the company," states Homeira Amiri, CEO of the der Centro Hotel Group. "In order to secure future sustainability, it is essential that we simplify processes. This ultimately also includes the bundling of procurement procedures." The Centro Hotel Group currently operates 55 hotels right across Germany and Austria from its headquarters in Hamburg. These hotels now contain around 5,600 rooms."Having recently acquired Vienna House as a customer, we are delighted that a second hotel group has quickly opted for our intelligent procurement model," said H.E.A.D.'s Managing Director Lars Schmid. "We are proud to have developed a digital procurement solution that serves the needs of prominent and rapidly expanding hotel chains." H.E.A.D. Hotel Equipment and Design GmbH is a subsidiary of Steigenberger Hotels AG. It bundles all the procurement processes of Deutsche Hospitality into a single purchasing platform. Cooperation agreements concluded with the two hotel groups Vienna International Hotelmanagement AG and Centro Hotel Management GmbH have firmly secured the market success of its e-procurement tool. 150 hotels, restaurants and catering companies are now using the H.E.A.D. GmbH. procurement platform.
