“We are keen to focus on developing properties that are intuitive and reliable, working with our international partners to continuously improve their effectiveness and efficiency,” says Mr. Amr Farouk, Group General Manager of GDHM.
STAAH’s cloud-based distribution technology, featuring solutions such as channel management, booking engine, website development, e-commerce, gift voucher management and reputation management are well-known to benefit accommodation operators of all sizes.
It is this comprehensive product suite along with an industry-acknowledged high standard of service that led to STAAH being GDHM’s preferred choice to grow and manage its online footprint.
Hospitality operators in the Kingdom of Bahrain have also been dealing with an increased demand for the country as a tourist destination, and hence the need for global pricing intelligence, seamless distribution and reliability.
GDHM will be using STAAH’s channel manager and booking engine to meet this challenge.
