the history of our commitment

Meeting the needs of today’s clients is not new. DHISCO has a rich history, having built a steadfast organization with dedicated technology and operations teams.

In 1989, the original company was formed by 17 hotel companies who understood the value of a single connection between hotels and the global distribution systems. The result was THISCO—The Hotel Industry Switch Company. The first connection through THISCO’s distribution platform was made with Sabre in 1989.

THISCO later became known as Pegasus Solutions. The company launched service to the first online travel site in 1996 with TravelWeb and then introduced both UltraDirect® and rich content functionality that enabled travel websites to easily push and pull XML data for searches, rich content and bookings.

Pegasus Solutions grew to include a number of other offerings and in 2014 the distribution division of Pegasus Solutions was acquired and launched as a stand-alone company, under the new brand DHISCO—the Distribution Hospitality Intelligent Systems Company. Today, with the support of our private equity partner, DHISCO is able to deepen existing client relationships and expand our product and services platform.
