Tampa, FL— July 26, 2022 — Actabl, provider of a comprehensive suite of leading technology solutions designed to address the full spectrum of hotel business needs, today announced the adoption of its ALICE and Transcendent solutions by Sonesta International Hotels Corporation (Sonesta). One of the fastest-growing hospitality organizations in the U.S., Sonesta is partnering with Actabl to ensure enhanced operational efficiency, heightened guest service quality and substantial cost savings for each of its 200+ U.S. managed properties representing over 40,000 rooms.
Having experienced a 350 percent increase in growth since 2020, Sonesta identified Actabl as the industry’s most capable provider for implementing a unified operational environment across its brand portfolio that eliminates potential inefficiencies and needless expense. For backend hotel management needs, each of the company’s managed properties can now leverage Transcendent by Actabl’s Engineering and Enterprise Asset Management technology to streamline both asset and document management processes. Using the solution, hoteliers gain instant and organized access to asset maintenance history, contracts, warranty information and more from one centralized and continuously updated location.
Sonesta’s managed properties are also using Transcendent by Actabl’s CapEx planning module, an intuitive dashboard offering real-time insight into all capital expenditures. Via the dashboard, hotel leadership and staff can anticipate, forecast and ensure the timely processing of both budgeted and unbudgeted expenditures up to 10 years in advance.
“To continue building on our company’s growth, we sought out an innovative technology company that provides best-in-class hospitality tools across the full scope of our hotel business operations,” said Len Wolin, Senior Vice President, Hotel Operations for Sonesta. “Actabl, with its wide-reaching range of operations technology solutions, is an ideal fit for the needs of our expanding organization and for our on-the-ground teams. Actabl is a partner focused on growth and innovation. Partnering with Actabl enables traditionally siloed departments to work together seamlessly to become more efficient, reduce unnecessary costs, and ensure that each of our properties deliver only the highest quality experiences.”
By adopting the full suite of ALICE by Actabl operations solutions, Sonesta International Hotels is able to implement an integrated, yet simplified hotel services management process that is proven to boost guest satisfaction rates while streamlining staff workloads and maximizing productivity. ALICE by Actabl modules made available to Sonesta properties include:
