|Markham, ON - April 22, 2003 – NORTHWIND today announced the widely
installed Maestro Enterprise Suite of applications for management companies
and hotels just became more versatile. The Maestro Enterprise &
Maestro Multi-Property Solutions are now able to drive room sales and facilitate
real-time corporate control of all system operation for multiple-property
hotel groups. Using one or more servers, the Maestro Enterprise Suite,
with single image inventory for last room selling, is managing entire hotel
groups, as well as standalone properties.
Maestro Enterprise is a full-function property management suite used by multi-property groups to share information between sales & catering, club/spa, PMS, accounts receivable, Internet reservations (ResEze), condo/owner, work order and yield management systems for greater control. When a guest makes a reservation anywhere in the enterprise it is immediately reflected across the entire operation through single image inventory for accurate enterprise availability. The flexibility of the system allows utilization of ASP or VPN architectures, Windows or Unix OS, and includes an on-line, real-time GDS reservation engine interface that increases room revenue and reduces labor costs through Internet bookings.
"Maestro is designed in partnership with current hotel customers for hoteliers. Our goal is to ensure that Maestro is a powerful tool used to enhance the guest experience and our customers CRM ability. Our commitment at NORTHWIND is to provide maximum system flexibility to satisfy evolving operational needs and enhance hotel profitability through technology,” said Jacob Dehan, CEO of NORTHWIND.
