Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) December 8, 2005
Internet Merchandising Systems Inc. announced today the availability of their new Enterprise Hotel Reservation Portal software. It is now possible for hotel chains, regional properties or properties with a common theme to expand their Internet presence save on distribution costs and generate more sales by allowing each licensed hotel to log-in directly to a central website and access their own secure hotel administrative area to control their rates, availability, photos and descriptive information and also has features for controlling rooms on allocation rather than in active inventory.
It provides a powerful new database search box allowing visitors to search hotels by a variety of criteria, such as, Destination, Room type, Price range and Star rating, plus the result page can be sorted by Name (A-Z) and (Z-A), by Price (low to high) and by Star rating (low to high).
Included also are extended abilities for travel agents, whereby each Agent can manage their account, commission and reservations from a single user interface to view and modify their account profile or view and delete their booked reservations, commissions and print their commission reports.
This strategy allows destination marketing websites, e-Lodging websites and hotel or property owners with multiple hotels or properties to compete directly with third party online websites in their own local markets.
The Enterprise Hotel Reservation Portal also includes the newly released IMSEdit, the IMS online WYSIWYG/HTML authoring tool that empowers their reservation and rental software users with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface for creating and publishing web descriptive content using any of the IMS software.
Users may choose to edit content in a familiar, "what you see is what you get" editor. Alternately, advanced users may directly edit HTML snippets, or copy and paste from other applications such as Word or FrontPage.
"This new version with its powerful online contracting & rate distribution capabilities for travel agents, resellers and corporate clients, allows hotels to easily set rates and allotments in the system, at which point any approved agent will have access to view availability and make reservations immediately. Many other powerful features and the new graphical editing interface allow any website to become a significant and powerful hotel room booking and reservation e-distribution centre," said IMS President John Shenton.
IMS reservation and rental software also includes many other powerful features as standard, such as; integrated IMS Call Center (Sales Agent) abilities; an integrated Guest Access Module and the ability to combine the standard hotel, tour, ecommerce and rental modules in a single integrated system and checkout.
For web promotion the software also includes as standard an integrated newsletter & email engine, automated affiliate program, ecommerce gift shop capability (IMScart ecommerce), P2P (Product to Product) up-sell display linking and merchandising plus a powerful coupon discount module.

(http://www.imscart.com) was founded on a commitment to develop innovative products and services to meet the needs of their hotel and tour partners in improving profitability and productivity.
