HRS, a hotel solutions provider, has opened an office in San Francisco, the company’s third in the US, joining offices opened in 2015 in New York and earlier this year in Dallas; it has 35 offices worldwide. HRS leverages benchmarking and data analytics, as well as global proprietary technology, for its procure-to-pay solutions, and a workforce of hotel experts to help companies gain the most value from their hotel budgets. More than one-third of the world’s top 100 brands, including several prominent technology companies based in northern California, work with HRS on some element of their hotel program management, according to the company. Suzanne Neufang, vice president of the Americas, said that opening this office, in a region known for innovation in data, artificial intelligence and technology, is the next logical step for HRS. She said the location makes it easier for the company to visit customers on the West Coast as well as to engage with potential clients in the region.
