|DOVER, NH, June 22, 1999— Daylight Software, Inc. announced
today that it has completed a successful beta installation at the Crowne
Plaza Phoenix Downtown. The beta, which included automation of both
guestroom and meeting space sales processes, was implemented using Microsoft
SQL Server 7.0 on NT Server with NT Workstation for clients.
Executives at the Crowne Plaza Phoenix indicated that their decision
to implement Daylight, made in December, 1998, was based on the software’s
high end functionality and Daylight’s overall customer responsiveness.
Stuart Carson, Controller at the property, said, “We were and continue
to be excited about this beta partnership with Daylight. They have
demonstrated complete commitment and have delivered what they promised
they would. Daylight enterprise approaches sales and catering automation
in a fresh way. You can see that as soon as you use the software.”
“The staff at the Crowne Plaza (Phoenix) really made things run smoothly
during every step of the beta process,” said Debbie Johnson, Daylight’s
Vice President of Operations. “Their staff worked hard to make sure
everything was set up way it needed to be, from lab testing all the way
through the training.”
Daylight enterprise offers a full range of sales and catering management
functionality, including comprehensive account/contact management, guestroom
and function room management, event management and full reporting capabilities.
It improves sales efficiency by putting all the information sales managers
need right at their fingertips. It’s simple enough to use in a small hotel,
but powerful enough for today’s large hotels. The result is a true enterprise
solution that is multi-database compatible, allowing for the use of whatever
large or small databases a hotel already uses, including Microsoft SQL
Server®, Microsoft Access®, and Oracle®.
