Image Payment request platform Prommt announced a partnership with HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems , a major IT supplier to the hospitality and retail sectors. Prommt is a payment request platform that enables businesses to easily request, collect, and track remote and over-the-phone payments. This collaboration further strengthens HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems’ focus on customer success, allowing their client’s hotel reservation staff to easily send secure, branded payment requests directly from the hotel’s property management system (PMS). HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems is active in 90 countries with over 11,000 customers and is Oracle’s largest hospitality partner worldwide. They offer a wide range of solutions, including property management, point of sale (POS), spa and guest activities, business analytics, payment gateway, mobile applications, channel manager, and more. By integrating Prommt’s capabilities, hoteliers can send their customers a branded, personalised payment request that can be accessed through SMS, WhatsApp, or email, allowing them to complete a fast, simple, and secure payment transaction with confidence. This partnership will help boost Prommt’s visibility across their client portfolio. Prommt recently became available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace meaning it can be integrated with OPERA 5 and OPERA Cloud via ORACLE Hospitality Integrations Platform (OHIP) . This integration offers many benefits including the ability to automate sending of payment requests based on agent and rate code and posting the payment status within the PMS, notifying staff of payment success or failure. In addition, Prommt has become integrated with many of the world’s leading payment gateways and has been utilised by hundreds of hotels across Europe, including many 5-star properties and resorts. Prommt is also PCI Level 1 compliant and adheres to GDPR, as well as the UK Data Protection Act 2018. Taking payments over the phone is still very common within the hotel industry. However, this practice carries the risk of fraud as well as costly chargebacks or a potential data breach when sensitive card details are transmitted and stored insecurely. A recent study from Expert Market revealed that up to 86 percent of chargebacks could be cases of intentional or unintentional fraud. A Statista study revealed that in 2022, 37 percent of all e-commerce transactions in Canada were completed using a mobile device. By 2026, this figure is forecast to rise to 42 percent, demonstrating that more and more people are looking to complete transactions from their phones. By incorporating Prommt’s technology, HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems will be able to offer their customers a payment solution that is highly secure and can be easily completed using a mobile device. Commenting on the new partnership, Donal McGuinness, CEO of Prommt said: “We are very excited to be a partner of HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems. It presents us with new opportunities and allows us to expand our market footprint, whilst enabling the hotel sector to collect payments in a more efficient, secure manner. I believe that this is a great leap forward for our brand as we seek to step onto the world stage as a payment company.” Speaking about the announcement, Siggi Schrot, Area Director UK & Ireland, HRS Hospitality and Retail Systems said: “We welcome Prommt as our new partner. Their product and deep integration complement our existing portfolio, allowing us to continue our customer-centric focus and provide a world-class innovative payment solution perfect for the hospitality industry.” Image Knowland , a provider of data-as-a-service insights on meetings and events for hospitality, reports June meeting and event volume is up 30.3 percent over June 2022.

Image IDeaS, a SAS company, a provider of hospitality revenue management software and services, has announced that Starhotels will deploy IDeaS’ G3 Revenue Management System (RMS) to improve revenue generation and forecasting at 28 of its properties across Italy and the UK. The rollout will allow Starhotels’ properties to compete equally with international brands backed by advanced technology and strong revenue management practices. Starhotels has been historically a leader and always adopted an explorer role to ensure being ahead of the competition. Starhotels turned to senior executives from IDeaS to identify areas for improvement regarding revenue management, sales, and operations where IDeaS technology could help. This engagement and analysis built a strong relationship between both organizations and led to further commitments from Starhotels’ executive team to use the technology and identify areas for improvement using revenue management technology as a basis. Using G3 RMS, Starhotels’ properties can make proactive pricing decisions based on actionable insights and real-time data. This agility and vision enable hotel operators and revenue managers to maximize a property’s revenue and profit potential by making strategic decisions with a complete understanding of their competitors’ capabilities, offerings, and positioning.

Our attention to detail doesn’t stop with our themed rooms, but continues through to our digital guest journey, allowing customers to access their rooms and communicate with staff on their terms.” Powered by the INTELITY platform, contactless service and digital amenities are available to Fantasyland Hotel guests throughout their stay. Guests can download the property’s app and enjoy the convenience of using their mobile devices to check-in and check-out, all while keeping their payment on file.

The INTELITY platform will help take that experience one step further.” Image By the end of the year, U.S. customers will be able to order Domino's Pizza from the Uber Eats or Postmates apps. The pizza giant has entered into a new global agreement with Uber that allows U.S. customers to order Domino's products through the Uber Eats and Postmates apps with delivery by the trained delivery experts of Domino's and its franchisees. The initial U.S. rollout of the agreement will begin this fall in four pilot markets, with ordering on the Uber Eats and Postmates apps anticipated to be enabled across the country by the end of 2023. New Opportunities Domino's CEO Russell Weiner said. "We are the leader in the delivery and carryout pizza marketplaces in the U.S. In addition, Domino's sells more food on its digital platform than any pizza company in America. "Now that aggregators are at scale, the next logical marketplace for us to enter is order aggregation. Our research in the U.S. and learnings from 13 of our international markets has shown us that taking orders using the Uber Eats Marketplace provides access for Domino's and its franchisees to a new segment of customers and what we believe will be a meaningful amount of incremental delivery orders once it's widely available." Deal Could Bring Uber Eats Orders to Two-Thirds of Domino's Stores Around the World This unprecedented agreement will also create the opportunity to unify Domino's international markets under a single master agreement that leverages the global scale of both brands. Domino's and Uber Eats currently have 27 international markets in common. This agreement has the potential for incremental orders from Uber Eats to 70% of Domino's stores around the world, including the U.S. "As the No. 1 pizza company in the world, it is not surprising that Domino's is a brand people have been asking for on Uber Eats' global platform," Weiner said. "Given certain customers only order their delivery from the Uber Eats app, this deal could make Domino's available to millions of new customers around the world. Domino's will still be the face our customers see at the door, while Uber will be providing us with adequate data to understand delivery efficiency and incrementality. Meanwhile, Domino's own e-commerce platform will continue to be the place our customers can go to access our best deals and industry-leading loyalty program." Partnership Benefits: Uber Eats will be the exclusive third-party platform for Domino's in the U.S. until at least 2024. Customers will be able to track their order using Domino's Tracker or through the Uber Eats app. Orders placed on the Uber Eats platform will be delivered by uniformed Domino's drivers. Uber One and Postmates Unlimited members will receive delivery with no charge on their Domino's orders within the Uber Eats and Postmates platforms. Domino's international markets that currently do not partner with Uber Eats will begin the assessment process for transitioning this year. Domino's Master Franchisees currently partnering with Uber outside of the new global contract will be able to transition to the new global agreement before the end of 2023.
