Furthermore, we have chosen Trust International because of their proven record of managing hotel chains. Trust´s ability to integrate multiple systems to a single platform and their consistent follow through has been essential in our decision making.”

Its portfolio includes 34 operational properties across Asia and more properties rapidly being developed in the next few years.
ONYX CEO, Mr. Peter Henley commented, “With a quarter of our business coming from the internet and travellers visiting us from all over the world, we needed a truly global CRS that could grow with us as we build each of our brands”.
“At Trust International, we know time is money,” stated Richard Wiegmann, Trust International Managing Director. “As we develop our products and services, we always do so with extensive customer input on how we can provide the best, state-of-the-art distribution service and tools.
