Aloha Kapalua! – Visual One and the Kapalua
Land Company Ink Agreement
Famous Maui, Hawaii resort selects the Visual One PMS, 
Golf, Retail, Back Office Accounting and Condominium
Owner Management systems
Rockville, MD (USA) – June 16, 2005 - Starting at HITEC 2003, the exclusive and world famous Kapalua Resort in Maui began the process of searching for solutions to modernize its PMS, Golf, and Condo software systems. The resort was looking for technologies that would provide significant gains in performance, features and reliability over the existing systems. Today their two-year search ended with the decision to install the software products from Visual One Systems.

The installation will include Property Management, Golf Management, Back Office Accounting, Condominium Accounting, Preventative Maintenance, Retail Point-of-Sale, Web Page Reservations (including condo owner web bookings) and Guest Activity Scheduling for the property’s 300 villas, three championship golf courses and seven retail outlets. Because all of the applications were developed by V1 programmers and use the same programming language and database engine (MS-SQL), the resort will benefit from the seamless integration features that Visual One provides.

About Visual One Systems
A privately-held company that has provided software to the Hospitality Industry since 1977. In addition to the software mentioned above, they also provide spa, sales & catering, restaurant point-of-sale, central guest data warehouse, and central reservations systems. Visual One is the lodging and golf system in many other famous golf resorts such as Pinehurst (hosting this week’s US Open Golf Championship), PGA National, Ocean Reef Club, Bandon Dunes, Barton Creek, and several other well-known golf destinations. Visual One is also considered a leader in many other hospitality technology applications and is the PMS system of choice for Rosen Hotels, Sodexho Conference Centers, and recently was selected for the 1,250-unit Trump Las Vegas property.

About Kapalua Resort
