HRS, the leading Global Hotel Solutions end-to-end technology provider in business travel, today announced an extension of its strategic partnership with Pan Pacific Hotels Group, one of Asia’s most established hospitality companies.
The renewed focus of the partnership is to explore growing opportunities in corporate travel, both globally and regionally.

“Corporate travel managers are committed to offering their travelers quality hotels in the right locations, and at the right negotiated price. More corporate travel programs count on HRS to find these options around the world,” said Frédéric Dumoulin, Senior Vice President of HRS Asia Pacific. “Beyond those elements, hotels and corporations increasingly seek more automated, seamless processes that enhance distribution efficiencies. This ultimately helps make the traveler’s journey easier. Forward-thinking hotel management companies like Pan Pacific know that building win-win partnerships such as this are vital to staying competitive.”
