Wyndham Vacation Ownership Wins 16 ARDA Awards

Last week’s ARDA World conference concluded with the annual ARDA Awards gala. Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO) cleaned up, receiving 16 ARDA awards.

The ARDA Awards Gala, hosted on Wednesday April 9, is an annual event to celebrate the leaders in the timeshare industry. Awards were presented in 60 different categories, including 12 ARDA Circle of Excellence (ACE) awards. The ACE Awards are given to the best of the industry. Awards such as the ACE Spirit of Hospitality, Women on Their Way, and Customer Service awards are just some of the prestigious honors.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership took home 16 awards, including the ACE Innovator Award. Recognizing Wyndham as one of the most innovative companies in the industry, the ARDA ACE Innovator Award is one of the event’s most impressive honors.

Wyndham’s innovative practices for 2014 include the successful launch of WVO Mobile Technology Initiative (MTI). With MTI, the WVO sales department can now use iPads to help owners and customers. In 2014, Wyndham distributed over 3,000 iPads across their dozens of timeshare resorts.

President and CEO of WVO Franz Hanning said,

“We are honored to receive these coveted industry recognitions, including the ACE Innovator Award — they are a true testament to our commitment to excellence as demonstrated by our hardworking associates each and every day. Our company’s success is a direct result of the achievements of our associates who always strive to deliver exceptional customer service by fostering a culture of continuous innovation and engagement.”
