(PRWEB) September 20, 2007
RSI International Systems Inc. today announced that their RoomKey Property Management System has become "Carbon Free" through a carbon emission offset partnership with Carbonfund.org™.
RoomKey is the first fully integrated web based property management software solution that offers hoteliers complete functionality while providing an opportunity to help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. RoomKey enables hotels, inns and resorts to effectively manage their property while conveying their environmental commitment to guests and other stakeholders.
RoomKey uses approximately 94% less energy than traditional server based property management systems. Because RoomKey is web based and centrally hosted, every client using RoomKey PMS can reduce their average annual consumption of electricity by up to 4,500 KwH - saving their properties hundreds of dollars per year and preventing the annual emission of approximately 3.3 tonnes of CO2. In 2008, RSI projects RoomKey clients will prevent the emission of approximately 495 tonnes of CO2 while saving over $85,000 in utility costs -- proving that you can effectively manage your property while creating less impact on the environment.
"When we performed our RoomKey environmental impact study, we were surprised to find how much more efficient our solution is compared to hotel server based systems" said Mark Smiciklas, Director of Sales and Marketing at RSI. "The hospitality industry is becoming more aware of how important green initiatives are to consumers. We're glad to be able to offer hoteliers a web based carbon free PMS alternative and take pride in the fact that RoomKey is good for the environment".
"Our organization has made a commitment to social responsibility" said Charles Ku, CEO of RSI. "We recognize that carbon offsets are only one component of the solution - our program with Carbonfund.org is part of an overall social responsibility strategy that includes energy conservation, recycling and employee programs"
