SAN MATEO, CA, - WorldRes.com is making great strides in its program to provide automated interfaces between the Internet and hotel property management systems (PMS), eliminating the need for hotels to use intermediaries to transact online reservations.
WorldRes.com’s PMS program is up and running with the GuestALL and Guest Tracker systems. Guest Tracker was developed by MunsenWare, a subsidiary of WorldRes.com.
Interface testing has been completed with Springer-Miller Systems, InnQuest and GHS Global and these links are ready for beta implementation. WorldRes.com and Multi-Systems, Inc. have completed the beta test phase, and testing with Visual One Systems, BookingCenter.com and Hotellinx Systems is in progress.
“Our PMS connectivity program is a high priority, given its importance for us and our member properties,” commented Greg Jones, CEO of WorldRes.com. “We are making it as easy as we possibly can for properties to transact reservations online using software and hardware that is already installed on site and with which they are already familiar. This program plays a major role in our strategy to provide an easy, cost-effective way for properties to take advantage of the growing acceptance of the Internet as a medium for transacting business, and serves our goal of growing our base of hotels quickly.”
“It’s the best of both worlds,” commented Rick Ellis of Olde Thyme Inn in Half Moon Bay, California. “I’ve always thought Guest Tracker was a great program for managing my property’s inventory, and I’ve seen for myself that the Internet sells rooms, but until now there wasn’t an easy way to combine the two. Because my online reservations go through Guest Tracker directly, it saves me so much time, and best of all, I don’t have to worry about double bookings. I think it’s just great.”
