Delivers High End, Low Cost Solutions
|BROOMFIELD, COLO. - April 4, 2005 - PhoneSuite's reputation for producing
high-quality, low-cost telephone solutions for the limited-service hotel
sector continues to expand, due in large part to its solid relationship
with the members of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, which
recently welcomed PhoneSuiteT as a Founding Sponsor.
PhoneSuite's products are perfectly suited to meet the needs of AAHOA's members, who represent over 50 percent of the economy lodging properties and nearly 37 percent of all hotel properties in the United States. As a Founding Sponsor, PhoneSuite will have access to tools and resources that will allow the company the opportunity to forge relationships with more than 8,000 AAHOA members.
"We're very excited to have the opportunity to expand our relationship with AAHOA," said Frank Melville, president and CEO of PhoneSuite, a division of Call Management Products Inc. "We've been involved with AAHOA since 1999, and owe some of our success to that relationship. Becoming an AAHOA Founding Sponsor this year was simply a good business decision."
AAHOA Board Member Jags Patel, who is president and CEO of Fort Worth, Texas-based ConnectedHotel, said he applauds PhoneSuite for taking a bold step in becoming an AAHOA Founding Sponsor.
"The AAHOA Board of Directors' decision was overwhelming in support of accepting PhoneSuite as a Founding Sponsor," Patel said. "I truly believe that the PhoneSuite product will do well with the AAHOA membership. PhoneSuite stands behind its product, and that will help to ensure its success."
Fred Schwartz, president of AAHOA, concurred: "AAHOA is pleased to welcome PhoneSuite as a Founding Sponsor of our association. We look forward to a mutually beneficial and rewarding relationship between PhoneSuite and AAHOA."
"At PhoneSuite, we make phone systems exclusively for the hospitality industry," Melville said. "More specifically, our system is designed for the economy and limited-services lodging environments. As we track our actual sales, AAHOA is the largest single association represented. It's obvious that AAHOA is a perfect fit for us and our products. We've enjoyed our relationship with AAHOA over the years, and we view this step as demonstration of our strong commitment to the overall hospitality industry."
Patel, who also has used and distributed the company's CallExtend dual-port automated attendant solution for more than 10 years, said PhoneSuite's products are a perfect match for AAHOA member hotels because of their cost effectiveness and attention to the intricate details necessary for hospitality solutions.
"It is time that a reasonable-priced solution is available for the under 200-room hotel," Patel said. "It's a tremendous benefit to have a product such as PhoneSuite designed exclusively for our market. It's a telephone system with no additional attachments, unlike the competition. The Voice Mail, Call Accounting and Auto Attendant is built in, which will cut down on service issues and dealing with multiple manufacturers. I see this is the biggest benefit - the fact that the system costs less only helps."
