 Daylight Software Approaches Sales and Catering Automation 
in a Fresh Way at Crowne Plaza Phoenix Downtown
Daylight Software Reports Successful Beta Installation
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®.

Founded in 1994 by Bill Duncan, Daylight Software, Inc. is a privately held, independent software developer and marketer of database management and communications applications software for the hotel and hospitality industry. As a recipient of the Microsoft® Retail Application Developer Award, Daylight Software is a recognized leader in developing applications for Microsoft Windows® that automate sales, catering, and marketing functions for the hospitality industry.
