Hospitality International Selects MSI As Preferred PMS Partner
EnterprisePM to provide yield management and custom reports at an
affordable price allowing properties to be more competitive 
 
PHOENIX — MAY 2, 2006 — Hospitality International, the Atlanta-based franchisor of more than 330 Scottish Inns, Master Hosts Inns, Red Carpet Inn, Passport Inn and Downtowner Inns, announced that it has entered into a preferred vendor relationship with Multi-Systems, Inc. (MSI) and its newly released Enterprise PM system. 
 
MSI is a leading supplier of property-management and integrated operations/marketing technologies for the lodging industry. Enterprise PM is a Web-based property-management system designed with simplified, streamlined functionality for limited-service properties, operating in an ASP environment.
 
“We have watched Enterprise PM evolve over the past 14 months and are greatly impressed with the scope and capacity of this system,” said Amy Foy, Executive Vice President of Hospitality International, Inc.  “It is an excellent component to complement the operations of our limited-service hotel properties. Likewise, MSI is an accomplished leader and innovator within the PMS arena, and it’s a company that we can rely on in the long run. We are quite pleased with the product and very comfortable to offer this choice for our franchised locations.”   
 
The most important aspect of this relationship, Foy said, is the ability to confidently recommend an affordable and efficient hospitality product that was conceived and designed with the limited-service hotel operator in mind.
 
“Hospitality International values individuality in terms of the look and feel of each property, while maintaining standards of quality that benefit its system as a whole,” said Brian Primeau, MSI vice president of the Americas. “MSI has spent the past 15 years working toward creating quality solutions for independent properties and franchisees while meeting the needs of affiliate franchisors or management companies. The synergies between the two companies are exciting, and we are thrilled to be in partnership with dynamic and diverse hotel company.”

One of the reasons that Hospitality International is so successful, Primeau said, is that it is built on the belief that relationships between franchisee and franchisor can be pleasant, enduring and prosperous. 

“We at MSI applaud Hospitality International and its positive franchisor/franchisee philosophy, and equally pledge to remain focused on strengthening relationships with our customers that enhance productivity, support guest service, build brand loyalty, and better manage the bottom lines for owners and operators,” he said.
