NORTHWIND’s installers are hotel people, they know how technology fits into operations. For an independent property, this is essential.
(PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Independent operators have freedom to manage their properties with more creative marketing programs, packages, and guest service offerings. They also have total responsibility for staff training, operations, and their hotel’s systems.
This is why NORTHWIND -Maestro PMS is dedicated to providing the best services and most responsive support, beginning with system installation, through all operating areas with Diamond Plus Service. Diamond Plus Service includes Training, 24/7 Support, Lifetime Version Upgrades, Online Marketing, and Professional Management Services that provide comprehensive knowledgeable support specifically to level the competitive playing field for independent hotels, resorts and multi-property groups.

Reliable Professional Installation, Training and Support Services Lead to Success
Transitioning from a legacy property management system to the latest hotel software platform can be challenging for any property team. NORTHWIND knows this is particularly true for independent operators who do not have franchisor support. NORTHWIND’s comprehensive hands-on installation and training make upgrading to the advanced Maestro™ Property Management Suite as smooth as possible.
Southernmost Hotel Collection recently installed NORTHWIND’s Maestro system at its three properties in Key West, Florida. “NORTHWIND’s team spared no effort to work with us on any challenges we had,” said Stuart Rankauf, Southernmost’s owner. “They are a good company with good people who worked hard to make the installation a success.”
St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino in British Columbia recently installed the fully-integrated Maestro Front Office, Sales and Catering, Tee-Time and Activity Scheduling, with the SilverWare POS system. “The NORTHWIND training team did a highly professional job installing all four systems and training the property’s staff,” said Warren Markwart president of MK2 Hospitality, St. Eugene Golf Resort’s technology consultant. “We selected NORTHWIND because of its seamless integration across all system modules, and for Diamond Plus Support. NORTHWIND’s installers are hotel people, they know how technology fits into operations. For an independent property, this is essential.”
‘We Drove Rates up 10% as Soon as we Installed Maestro’
The Maestro PMS incorporates revenue generating tools and an integrated Yield Management System that automates revenue optimization the minute the system is implemented. Maestro’s Yield Management lets property managers create revenue optimization strategies and quickly implement them across all reservation channels including websites, call centers, and travel agencies. The system optimizes group, transient, and package rates with controls that enable properties to operate more profitably – instantly. “We drove rates up 10 percent at St. Eugene Golf Resort immediately after we installed our Maestro Yield Management system,” said Markwart.

Web Connection Online Marketing Services Boost Direct Bookings for Lower Cost
Direct website booking is more important than ever for independent operators to market themselves, increase occupancy and control booking costs. Maestro's integrated Web Connection suite featuring ResWave booking engine, gives operators real-time direct website booking and customized control of rates and availability across online channels to maximize profitability.
