HRS, the hotel solutions provider, has signed a new multi-year agreement with Accord. Under terms of the agreement, HRS’s corporate clients will have access to enhanced direct connect technology to access “the most competitive rates and flexible terms” from Accor properties across the spectrum of hotel categories. Business travelers who are members of Accor’s loyalty program, Le Club AccorHotels (which will be upgraded by the end of the year under the new name of ALL-Accor Live Limitless) also see value from this deal, as they can gain points and rewards when booking via HRS corporate channels.  Robert Hornman, senior vice president of HRS Europe/Middle East/Africa, said that beyond working more cohesively during the hotel sourcing process, the company will leverage its direct connect pipeline with Accor “to drive more efficient sharing of Accor’s rates, amenities and corporate-friendly contract terms to managed travel programs and business travelers.”
