Cloud-based PMS Frontdesk Anywhere extends its hotel management software service to integrate Central Reservations Services for independent hotels, motels and other lodging properties.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA. - Cloud-based Property Management System Frontdesk Anywhere has announced its new cloud-based central reservation system (CRS), creating a streamlined approach to guest bookings. The new Frontdesk Anywhere CRS builds on the company's desire to offer one-call customer service for those who manage hotel or other hospitality lodging.
Until now, there has been a barrier between Hotel Property Management Systems and Central Reservation Systems that was creating problems for hoteliers. This new, unified cloud-based approach from Frontdesk Anywhere removes that problem by integrating both. With a single call, the hotel manager can have updates performed to their software to optimize sales. Typically, the hotel manager would need to call multiple vendors in order to make sure rate and inventory stayed in sync.
"It's a good solution to a long established problem within the hotel industry," said Frontdesk Anywhere’s co-founder Thomas Lyle. "We are always looking for ways to update and improve our system for our clients and this will provide several advantages that will impact the day-to-day smooth running of our clients’ hotels."
The new system will bring together information regarding revenue booked directly through a hotel website, on a mobile device or over the phone and it will make it possible to seamlessly share data. Frontdesk Anywhere is also offering ongoing support.
"This is a new venture for businesses in the hotel and accommodation sector," added Lyle. "It's something that has not traditionally been on offer in this area so we're happy to offer our clients something new that provides valuable solutions."
Frontdesk Anywhere is a leading provider of innovative hotel reservation system software for independent properties. To date, over 1,000,000 hotel guests have had their stay managed with Frontdesk Anywhere — from the initial online booking process through arrival, onsite operations and checkout. The company is focused on converging processes traditionally performed by separate systems into a single all-in-one productivity application. All modules are seamlessly integrated within the application and accessible from any computer and most mobile devices. Its cloud-based tools offer multiple cutting edge solutions for a wide variety of property types including hotels, motels, B&Bs, inns and resorts. The company is a privately held corporation based in San Francisco, California.
