Hoteliers attending HITEC next month in Austin, Texas, will be introduced to new digital tools from RMS Hospitality Solutions that will greatly improve the way they manage real-time data and how they communicate with guests. For the first time at HITEC, RMS will showcase “The Hospitality Cloud” (also known as RMS 9+). This suite of a la carte technologies (including PMS, channel management, guest marketing, business intelligence, tour desk and more) is designed to improve reservation management efficiencies and increase bookings via seamless, real-time online bookings and channel management integration. More than 4,000 properties in 25 countries currently rely on RMS for their property solutions.
“RMS is eager to attend HITEC for the first time,” said Todd Sabo, RMS North America President & General Manager. “We are especially excited to showcase new PMS enhancements that are made possible due to recent changes to our system architecture. The core of RMS is the powerful rules engine that enables us to deliver rich technology using the latest and best web application available. For the last few years, that application was Microsoft Silverlight which delivered the previous web-based version of RMS9 in a timely manner. Work began earlier this year on the conversion from Silverlight to HTML5. While the experience for the user was seamless with Silverlight, our developers now have the tools they need with HTML5 to unleash the full power of RMS in the cloud, and in June, we will unveil 9+.”
The RMS9+ cloud platform includes the following PMS enhancements:
Although RMS is new to HITEC, the company is not new to hospitality. Headquartered in Australia, RMS is one of the first PMS companies in the world to migrate from DOS to MS Windows back in 1995, and then again it upgraded from an Access database to SQL in 2002. Over the last five years RMS has been working on future proofing its solution by building a robust rules engine connected to a series of web services. For the non-technical, that means RMS can be displayed on virtually any front end, now and into the future. When RMS explored moving to a web-based platform back in 2009, there were few development tools available to work in HTML capable of supporting a program as robust as RMS. Today with HTML5 and 9+, the sky is the limit.
“The Hospitality Cloud takes the worry out of managing a hotel’s information systems,” Sabo said. “Hoteliers can now spend more time on running their businesses and less time worrying about managing an IT system. The traditional method of deploying IT involves purchasing software, installing a server and a network with some workstations (and possibly SQL and a network operating system). Miles of cables are also needed, but most of all, a local IT professional will need to keep the whole thing running, including backing up data, purging, version updates and system administration. The Hospitality Cloud removes all the worries of running software systems. Rather than load property software onto a hotel’s network, we load it on ours. RMS takes care of all installation, configuration and system management. All a property needs is a computer or computers with access to the Internet. Simply log on and start using it. You can access the data from anywhere on any computer that has access to the Internet. Hoteliers will experience faster response speeds than they are now, and only they can access the data. RMS ensures that all data is continuously backed up, and we guarantee ‘up’ times of 99.98 percent.”
