SINGAPORE – 10 April 2018 – FASTBOOKING and Serenata join forces to enhance hotel’s direct booking with seamless connectivity all in one-stop. This collaboration will provide the hospitality industry with the best-in-class e-commerce and CRM solutions to drive qualified traffic to the hotels’ website and to provide a memorable experience for every guest.
According to tnooz.com, the new guest acquisition cost for hotels vary by property but typically ranged from 15%-20% of room revenue, and industry figures indicate that the cost of customer retention is five times lower than acquiring a new customer.

“It is an honour to be partnering with FASTBOOKING. The seamless solution will empower hoteliers to deepen customer relationships and fuel loyalty throughout the customer lifetime journey.,” said Dieter Dirnberger, CEO of Serenata.
