HOUSTON, TX, March 19, 2014-Sceptre Hospitality Resources today announced that Millennium & Copthorne Hotels migrated their global portfolio of over 100 hotels to SHR's WindsurferCRS. With hotels throughout Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and North America, Millennium & Copthorne is confident that the WindsurferCRS is the best product for the diverse organization. 

"The successful implementation of the Windsurfer CRS allows M&C to achieve its strategic objective of increasing direct sales, while at the same time allowing for an integrated approach to distribution. Our distribution system now benefits from seamless play between revenue management, channel distribution and digital marketing due to our new CRS having efficient connectivity with our decision management, channel management and content management systems. The hospitality interpretation, within the internet booking engine, of the online industry's best practice shopping cart approach is a boon for both marketers and shoppers. This is the start of a significant improvement in the online customer's buying experience" states Nayan Peshkar, Vice President of Revenue Management & E-commerce Europe for M&C.

The WindsurferCRS platform is the industry's most flexible central reservation system, featuring user friendly and consistent layouts on all application interfaces, multi property displays with dynamic availability options and enhanced rate management features. 

In addition to a direct connection with Travelport, Windsurfer also has direct connections to many Online Travel Agencies including Travelocity, Expedia,, Orbitz, TripConnect, Hotelscan, Jetsetter, Roomkey, GHX, wego, LondonTown, and Agoda. 

Another important benefit of the migration is the deep integration with other hotel systems used by Millennium, such as Revenue Management Systems and Property Management Systems.  M&C will be utilizing Windsurfer's two-way-advanced interface with Opera, as well as the Windsurfer interface with IDeaS revenue management, and the Windsurfer Channel Manager. 

"One additional aspect of this project that we are celebrating is that M&C is the inaugural user of SHR's new Internet Booking Engine, which will be released to the industry at large in the coming weeks", commented Rod Jimenez, Chief Operating Officer of SHR.  "The new IBE includes responsive design, a shopping cart style booking process, persuasive messaging, and the brand new Call-to-Continue™ feature, among other exclusive functions."
