Whitbread - Premier Travel Inn: Integration of IT Systems

Successful implementation

ensured no hotels had to close

Whitbread - Premier Travel Inn
In July 2004, Whitbread acquired hotel group Premier Lodge from The Spirit Group and merged the company with its own chain, Travel Inn, to create Premier Travel Inn, the UK's leading value hotel company. With the 141 Premier Lodge hotels, the newly formed company encompassed 457 hotels, with a combined 28,000 rooms.

Whitbread approached Fujitsu during the initial phases of the negotiation process with Spirit to develop a comprehensive and viable plan for the IT integration that would ensure each hotel to trade as a Premier Travel Inn on the day it was converted. Fujitsu provided strategic information and analysis that allowed Whitbread to demonstrate how the project could be successfully completed in the six month time frame.
