Sales and Marketing, Divi Resorts. ?gSo we conducted an exhaustive research of all the systems and services in the marketplace and found that only iHotelier provided a truly integrated offering of reservations and marketing capabilities. Their iManager solution is an amazing corporate data warehouse application, which allows users to manage single or multi-property inventory and at the same time also equips them with marketing and CRM tools.
