Thursday October 20th, 2016
Condé Nast Johansens has teamed up with Premier Software and its flagship software system – Core by Premier Software – as its exclusive hospitality software partner
Condé Nast Johansens (Johansens) – the leading reference guide for independent travellers seeking luxury hotel and spa venues across the world – has teamed up with Premier Software as its exclusive hospitality software partner.
Working with over 550, four and five star independent luxury hotels and spas worldwide, Premier’s partnership with Johansens will see its flagship business management software – Core by Premier Software (Core) – marketed and endorsed direct to the Johansens portfolio within the UK and Europe.
Core is already the IT partner of choice for many luxury hotels and spas throughout the world including Chewton Glen, Dormy House, Clivedon House, Intercontinental Dubai and The Myoka Spas in Malta, but will now be working with Johansens to generate further awareness.
Developed exclusively for the spa, leisure and wellness industry, Core has been designed as the complete business solution. More than just a booking system, Core it multi-functional, single or multi-site and integrates with existing PMS systems.
PCI compliant and SEPA accredited, it can be tailored to suit both independent, boutique spas and hotels, or manage large multi-site groups. Core’s popularity is based on its versatility and ability to provide a full performance overview through its extensive reports, online booking and membership information, all at a touch of a button.
It is this capability and strong alignment with its existing portfolio which proved Core to be the perfect fit for Johansens as Fiona Patrick, Condé Nast Johansens client services director, explains: “We choose our partners like we choose the hotels and spas we invite into our portfolio – very carefully. They have to be world-class, of the highest quality and go beyond expectation.
“Premier certainly meets this criteria and shares our values. Its flagship corporate software system – Core – is perfect for our hand-picked properties. We are delighted to welcome them on board and look forward to introducing Core.”
As part of the exclusive hospitality partner agreement, Premier will be introduced to all UK and European properties within the Johansens portfolio and coincides with a complete new look for the Core brand.
Leonie Wileman, chief operations officer at Premier Software, adds: “Core already works with some of UK’s leading hotel and spas, and the partnership with Johansens is testament to the quality of the software.
“However, Core does not stand still. It is continually evolving to meet the needs of the hospitality industry and over the coming months we will be re-positioning the brand, which has started with its refreshed, new-look.
“We are looking forward to working with Johansens as an exclusive partner and supporting its portfolio.”
Core has a number of key functions including online bookings, memberships, automated marketing, extensive reporting features utilised by finance directors right through to therapists, and above all, secure.
