MSI and eRevMax Collaborate to Provide Rate Shopping Information
Access through Property Management Systems

Phoenix, AZ Ė October 30, 2009 Ė MSI (Multi-Systems, Inc.), a hospitality technology solutions provider, with a focus on property management, sales & catering, point of sale, business intelligence and central corporate services, announces an agreement with eRevMax, to provide competitive rate shopping through RateTiger into its hospitality technology solutions.

MSI will utilize RateTigerís leading technology to provide integrated rate shopping data for MSIís WinPM and ePM property management systems. The initial offering, designed to provide an efficient and cost effective way of gathering and analyzing competitive information, will provide properties with knowledge on selected competitors without having to access a separate system.  MSI and eRevMax will initially introduce a standard package that will include information for up to 5 competitive hotels, across 5 ADS websites.  Other packages can be customized based on frequency and number of sites accessed.

Having competitive data readily available through the property management system will greatly increase a revenue managerís ability to effectively set rates to maximize the sale-ability of distressed inventory.

"We are convinced that the partnership with MSI will provide our joint customers with value added service" said Sascha Hausmann, RateTiger's CEO, "In times where consumers are price sensitive, hotels need to carefully review and monitor competitor pricing. Integrating such information into the Property Management System allows hoteliers to see benchmarking data where rates are being composed, saving time and money" Hausmann continued.

Laura Kirby-Meck, CMO for MSI commented, ďWe are excited about this opportunity to provide our customers with valuable data that they need, in an efficient and cost effective manner.  As each property attempts to maximize its market-share, having the data that Rate Tiger provides will prove invaluable.  Gone are the days of having to search all of the GDS and ADS sites to gather intelligence.Ē

MSI and eRevMax will launch this collaborative solution for clients by the end of year.  For more information on this integration please contact your MSI sales or account manager 602.870.4200 or via email at
