News for the Hospitality Executive
Arcadia, California — June 12, 2012 — FCS Computer Systems (FCS), a leading comprehensive hospitality solutions provider, today announced that its FCS Unicorn, a Universal Interface and Billing system, is compliant with key communication solutions from Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services.
FCS Unicorn was designed for hospitality organizations requiring an onsite multi-property or cloud-based universal interface and high-end billing system. The solution helps make billing and system integration simple for large-scale hotels, integrated resorts and multi-property operations. The application is now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura Communication Manager 6.0.
“The compatibility between Unicorn and Avaya Aura Communication Manager provides a host of operational benefits for our hotel customers who want the convenience of our cloud-enabled solution with comprehensive billing capabilities from multiple systems via one interface,” says Steven Weeks, CEO of FCS. “Our customers can now incorporate new technologies easily and cost effectively with their communications infrastructures.”
FCS is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program — an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.
As a Technology Partner, FCS is eligible to submit products for compliance testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compatible. Doing so enables businesses to confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure — speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
“Technology Partners like FCS are expanding the choices available to Avaya customers,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations, Avaya. “With a broad selection of standards-based solutions that are compliance-tested for compatibility, businesses can use communications strategically in their operations and make critical information readily available to both clients and employees.”
