One Systems, a leading Hotel software provider to offer its product suite
of Hospitality software in Ireland.

In the early 1990's following market research - Philip Rock identified a gap in the market for more sophisticated & integrated systems and set about promoting the IGS Hotel system.
The IGS Hotel system quickly established itself
as the market leader in Ireland.
Mike & Dave achieved major success together in the 80's and 90's when Mike became a distributor of the IGS Hotel system eventually buying it outright in the UK and becoming a market leader before selling it on to Softbrands.
"I am personally very happy to be working again with Philip", commented Mike Gadbury, Managing Director of Visual One Systems (Europe). "He has a proven track record in not only selling systems to hotels, but in building personal relationships with clients. We have a world class product at Visual One and I wanted someone on the ground in Ireland who would sell our product and build a client base for our products. There is no one better able to do that than Philip Rock".
Philip has been involved in the hotel sector for nearly 20 years, graduating with a B.Sc. (Hospitality Management) from Dublin's Institute of Technology, he has worked as the I.T. & Revenue Manager for the London Tara Hotel, an 800 bedded property.
When Hotels computer systems were in their infancy, Philip worked alongside software vendors developing integrated systems from Conference & Banqueting, Guest History, Sales & Marketing programs and later with Yield Management systems.
