Six Continents Retail Goes Live on the Internet

Ramesys Hospitality Inc, a leading provider of IT solutions to the lodging industry, announces that Innkeeper`s Lodge, part of Six Continents Retail (formerly Bass Leisure Retail), is live on the Internet with the on-line Internet booking module from Ramesys Hospitality.

The module is a component of the revolutionary Chain Management Solution (CMS) - a single inventory, integrated PMS/CRS, that allows customers with Internet access the ability to book rooms for themselves directly onto live availability.
Innkeeper`s Lodge Online Reservation Service ( is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is a secure and easy to use process that consists of a few steps, including selecting the property, the arrival and departure dates, room type, number of rooms needed and the number of occupants in the room. Credit card details are taken to guarantee bookings and payment is made upon arrival.

CMS has simple screens and easy to use menus, making training requirements at unit level dramatically lower than for an ordinary PMS. Rate and inventory are controlled centrally, enabling hotel staff to reduce their labor time and spend more time with the guest and less time maintaining the database. Innkeeper`s Lodge is a collection of lodges aimed at providing guests with a refreshing budget accommodation experience. Front desk operators access CMS via a web browser linked via ISDN to a central server. No data or application software is located at the hotel, thus allowing software upgrades and faster implementation of policy changes. It also allows central interrogation of customer data, the creation of a centralized guest history database and the ability for any property to be sold by any other property
