It looks as if a true paperwork reduction programme has arrived in the shape of Prime Hospitality Corporations innovative E-Folio Program, a paperless method for collection and distribution of hotel folio information from corporate travellers to their home offices for immediate expense report generation.
Prime is the first hotel company to offer this new innovation at all 203 of its properties within the AmeriSuites and Wellesley Inn & Suites proprietary hotel brands. E-Folio is part of a larger solution developed and implemented by Multi-Systems, Inc. MSI`s Corporate Track provides central reporting for frequency club administration, data warehousing and reporting designed to enhance Prime`s yield management, revenue management and guest experience initiatives.
E-Folio`s first application is currently serving over 130,000 travelling IBM employees, but MSI and Prime have developed a method that can be applied to other corporate customers as well. The E-Folio technology currently allows IBM employees to stay at any of Prime`s AmeriSuites and Wellesley Inn & Suites hotels and have their expenses automatically reported to IBM. Corporate Track is an extension of MSI`s Property Management System and has been developed with the ability to assist any Prime corporate client who requests these new services.
Corporate Track offers other web-based applications, including the ability for the corporate office, properties and frequent guest members to gain immediate, secure access to view, print or e-mail their travel folios from any computer or hand-held PDA device with internet access.
