SHR’s WindsurferCRS had Exceptional Year in 2014
January 7, 2015 8:23am
With the release of TopSail™, the responsive Internet Booking Engine from SHR, the first real shopping cart experience was available to guests when booking single hotel stays and multiple stay itineraries. TopSail™ also revolutionized the mobile experience with features such as Call to Continue™ and Save for Later that made conversion even easier for the mobile user.
The team at SHR worked diligently to release new features and enhancements that hotels need in a CRS- including updates to the rates & packages sections, better data display within the system, and flexible group functionality. SHR fully understands that hotels use many different systems to help their property run smoothly and meet revenue goals, so powerful integrations with these third party systems are a top priority. In 2014, WindsurferCRS added integrations with Flip.to, Nor1, Reevoo, and Duetto, and enhanced interfaces with IDeaS and several property management systems including Micros OXI, MSI's CloudPM, and PAR Springer-Miller's ATRIO.
The distribution landscape is ever expanding, so integrations with external booking channels are always a focus at SHR. The team is continuously adding new direct connections to WindsurferCRS, which allows the best and most cost-effective connection to major Online Travel Agencies (OTAs). WindsurferCRS also offers distribution to all major meta-search sites available today, and hotels can further their distribution with the Windsurfer Channel Manager that allows properties to connect to hundreds of smaller OTAs all over the world.
"2014 has truly been a remarkable year for WindsurferCRS . Not only have we added features and released new enhancements that our clients want and need, we released a brand new booking engine and have migrated three major hotel chains onto the system. We have even more planned for 2015 and can't wait for the industry to see all that WindsurferCRS can do," says Estella Hale, VP of Products for SHR.
