SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (November 22, 2011) – Hotel management software company Frontdesk Anywhere and InnLink Central Reservation services announce the introduction of an enhanced CRS/PMS interface to provide their joint customers with simplified inventory management and increase sales visibility for accommodation properties. The enhanced integration means properties will be able to send rate and inventory details as well as receive guest bookings from over 600,000 travel agents worldwide.
InnLink offers connectivity to Global Distribution Service providers and Online Travel Agencies. Once connected, Frontdesk Anywhere will communicate with InnLink CRS, automatically sending and receiving changes as they occur in real-time.
Kristin Intress, InnLink CEO, stated, “The CRS/PMS interface is a key component of hotel efficiency ensuring the best sales opportunity. We are pleased to be able to provide significant benefits to both Frontdesk Anywhere and InnLink customers through this agreement.”
“It’s a great program” Stacy Page, General Manager of the Budget Inn & Suites in Brownwood, TX stated. “We immediately saw the bookings start to flow in once the connection was made. As an added bonus, everything is online so I can easily check in on my property from any computer at the property or at home.”
“Frontdesk Anywhere is focused on providing easy-to-use web-based hotel management software solutions,” stated Frontdesk Anywhere co-founder, Thomas Lyle. The interface with InnLink as our GDS partner will allow hotels to manage their inventory from the Frontdesk Anywhere PMS with their rooms available on the GDS. All reservations received will be available in the PMS with no manual intervention required. It’s the best of both worlds; visibility and ease of operations. We are delighted to be able to offer this solution to our growing customer base.”
The interface is available for deployment today. Customers may contact Frontdesk Anywhere at 1-866-924-1949 or www.frontdeskanywhere.com or InnLink at 800-525-4658 or www.innlink.com.
