(Goodbye, old Engineering software)
Introducing Visuals-driven
Engineering (VISE) Software

Booth 3155

November 11, 2004 - Val Reyes, President of Metromedia Software, Inc. (MSI) announced the release of its latest product, HotelEXPERT XMfm, at the IHMRS Show in New York City on Sunday, November 14 at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. MSI introduced the Rapid Response category of hotel software at the 1997 IHMRS Show for which it won the Best New Technology Award. "With the release of XMfm, a new category of hotel software, VISE, short for Visuals-driven Engineering, is once again created by us," Reyes claims.

"XMfm combines the intuitive features of HotelEXPERT and the solid performance of MicroMain engineering software. Work requests flow harmoniously between the front-of-the-house departments and Engineering, with no one giving up the way they currently conduct business," Reyes says. "The advent of simple to use CAD (computer aided design) software has further simplified work order generation, almost to the level of child’s play," Reyes adds.

XMfm goes beyond Engineering. Data-enabled drawings can also be used by Housekeeping, such as to re-order fabric for a couch--by merely clicking on the couch. Information Services can track PCs, make and model, and operating system, as well as license compliance for the many software applications in use at any hotel today. Outside contractors waste less time when directed to the equipment by easy-to-understand drawings.


"A picture paints a thousand words", and so do Drawings! Experience a unique "visual" approach to facilities maintenance. The advent of easy-to-use CAD (computer-aided) drawings, combined with the flexibility of HotelEXPERT allows you to click on any equipment and schedule its repair or maintenance. With just another "click", an asset's maintenance history is displayed. Fast. Visual. Remarkable.

Query drawings? Use XMfm like MapQuest to locate equipment such as fire extinguishers, air handlers, internet cables, telephone circuits - in an instant. Find out which rooms have Karastan carpets, pink vs. blue, to plan your next renovation project or capital budget submission. Suit yourself with work orders that include drawings, if you so desire.

Exponential Accuracy. With drawing-triggered work orders, a chef can click on a malfunctioning stove burner, saving time wasted describing its exact location to a repairman. Visual depictions result in fewer errors, and of course, less inter-departmental conflict.

Look like a hero. Your hotel colleagues stand to benefit as much as you do. IT, for example, can visually keep track of PC models, Operating Systems, Printers, etc. Perhaps, Housekeeping wants to track Artwork placement in guest rooms. Or re-order fabric for a couch. Was any furniture or equipment moved? Your drawing will tell.
