hotel.info wins Regional Supplier Recognition Award of Texas Instruments
London, 21. August 2008 - hotel.info is the only distributor obtaining the Regional Supplier Recognition Award of Texas Instruments (TI). Since Spring 2005, Texas Instruments uses hotel.info as their hotel reservation service for all bookings of their 30,000 employees worldwide.
The Regional Supplier Recognition Award is awarded annually to companies which distinguish themselves from others, according to the Texas Instruments distributor's evaluation criteria. Texas Instruments is a high-technology operative concern with challenging quality management.
The leading American semi-conductor manufacturer Texas Instruments works with more than 20,000 suppliers worldwide. All suppliers are evaluated annually and estimated according to the worldwide unitary criteria catalogue CETRAQ (short for "Cost, Environmental Responsibility, Technology, Responsiveness, Assurance of Supply and Quality").
Dr. Heinz Raufer is very pleased to receive this award: "This shows that we have not only emerged as an international leading hotel reservation service for private as well as for small and medium-sized business customers, but also a worldwide concern as Texas Instruments, with its travelling employees, relies on our hotel content and our quality service."
