InnLink CRS and Five Star Hotel Systems Partner to Offer
Enhanced Two-Way Property Management Interface

Adds New Technology, Partnership Programs for the Hospitality Industry


HENDERSONVILLE, TN (May 10, 2013) – Over the last two decades, InnLink CRS has emerged as a leading reservation services and representation company, providing voice and internet booking engines, GDS/IDS/OTA connectivity and account management services to approximately 6,000 independent hotels, chain properties and resorts worldwide.  As the company celebrates its 21th anniversary, it is upgrading and expanding its partnerships and alliances of hospitality services and brands.

InnLink CRS and Five Star PMS announced today, an enhanced availability upgrade in their interface. InnLink CRS, powered by TravLynx technology, and Five Star Hotel System’s PMS solution have launched the two-way capabilities for maintaining real-time rates, availability, inventory, and packages - allowing properties to open their entire inventory on the GDS and OTAs with no fear of overbooking. Enhanced availability interfaces have been shown to increase CRS revenue across the InnLink customer base by 104%.

“This enhancement is certain to increase reservation revenue and RevPAR” cites Kristin Intress, President of InnLink CRS.  “The upgrade also increases guest satisfaction by allowing InnLink’s 24-hour Call Center to assist with bookings made directly by the property.”

InnLink has over 21 years of experience in the industry and provides a suite of central reservation solutions to over 6,000 customers. “InnLink’s goal is to significantly increase customer net revenue at a competitive price, while simplifying a complex process.  We enable our clients to take care of their guests while we take care of them.  InnLink offers a wide variety of services, relationships and partnerships representative of the company’s strengths and responsiveness to industry trends and directions,” added Intress.

Five Star Hotel Software Corporation develops, sells, installs, teaches and supports its unique suite of fully integrated hotel software and resort software.  Since 1994, the company has continuously focused on client feedback, resulting in hotel software that is simple to use, extremely reliable, and very cost effective.   With an astounding record of reliability - less than 0.3 after-hour calls per hotel per year since 2008 – Five Star delivers a 20 minute turnaround time on all support calls.
