Interface will include rate update and client file information that will
allow hoteliers to manage rates and customer data from one system
|PHOENIX — NOVEMBER 3,
2005 — Multi-Systems Inc. (MSI) and Pegasus Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: PEGS),
have agreed to develop an interface between Pegasus’ RezView® central-reservation
system and MSI’s WinPM property-management system that will result in what
the companies expect to be the industry’s most advanced, integrated PMS/CRS
solution available today. MSI also will assist Pegasus in developing an
additional interface for the RezView® CRS that will be compliant with
Open Travel Alliance (OTA) specifications.
The WinPM/RezView interface, which represents an enhancement of an existing version, is expected to be available in first quarter 2006.
“MSI’s growth and longevity in the hospitality industry can be attributed in part to the strong business relationships we have with leading technology and service companies such as Pegasus Solutions,” said MSI president Rick Munson. “Together MSI and Pegasus will be able to offer our customers enhancements, new products and even more opportunities for interfaces that save them time and money.”
Dennis Law, senior vice president of product management for Pegasus, said the goal of the MSI/Pegasus partnership is to provide a completely integrated enterprise system that will rival anything in the industry. The two-way integrated interface will enable information in WinPM and RezView — such as rates and availability — to be shared between systems and exchanged in both directions in real time, he said.
“The MSI/Pegasus interface will make it easier for hotels to manage rates and customer data from a single point of entry,” Law said. “The integrated interface will ensure data distribution and synchronization”
OTA Interface in Development
Mark Houser, MSI chief information officer who
has been responsible for leading MSI’s technology development and implementation
effort for the past 20 years, said MSI is excited to be combining its expertise
in CRS/PMS integration with Pegasus’s strengths in servicing its customers
with central-reservation systems.
