The Louis T Collection (Louis T), a new hospitality and building solutions company, and Frontdesk Anywhere, a leader in cloud-based hotel management software, have recently joined forces to provide independent hotels with an all-in-one platform that manages front desk operations alongside centralized rate and inventory management, revenue management and online distribution.
A rising new player in Asia’s hospitality arena, Louis T offers a suite of services covering key aspects of hotel and asset management, as well as building and design solutions. Louis T leverages its diverse in-house expertise and technology alliances to improve a hotel’s operational performance and profitability, its market position, and to optimize product offering and styling. External technology partners like Frontdesk Anywhere will complement its business expansion strategy.
Jing Zhou, the senior director of strategic planning at Louis T, identified several key attributes of Frontdesk Anywhere as the inspiration for this agreement.
- Frontdesk Anywhere’s platform has been proven as a cloud based leader serving more than 1,000 hotels in over 45 countries.
- All the power of an enterprise grade property management system, coupled with intuitive design and an easy-to-use interface that makes learning effortless for hotel employees.
- No commissions and a low flat monthly fee makes Frontdesk Anywhere affordable to hotels both large and small.
- The Frontdesk Anywhere Application Program Interface (API) enables 3rd party software vendors to seamlessly integrate and interact with Frontdesk Anywhere in real time.
- Companies like Frontdesk Anywhere are game changers that allow independent hotels to take advantage of tomorrow’s technology.
This new alliance is remarkable as the first step in Louis T’s comprehensive technology offering, and as its debut in the hospitality arena.
“A property management system is the core engine of every hotel system,” said Grant Healy, Louis T’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “Our technology solution is holistic and tailored to hotels that regard independence and singularity as central to their appeal. Whilst we have a strong intergroup building solutions and asset management backbone, the alliance with Frontdesk Anywhere provides us with the added technology strength to elevate both independents and small hotel groups to higher levels of success.”
“This strategic alliance will aid in our expansion into new markets,” said Joe Kiernan, Frontdesk Anywhere co-founder and chief technology officer. “We have a strong presence in North America already. Partnering with Louis T will allow us faster penetration into Asia where the group has a strong network and support structure.”
