Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
SkyTouch Technology kicks-off a major sales expansion effort for its industry-leading hotel management solution platform. Shane Platt, a hotel industry veteran, is tasked to lead a ten-person sales team, targeting growth across economy, mid-scale and upper mid-scale hotel sectors throughout North America.
Ric Leutwyler, President of SkyTouch explains, “Our SkyTouch Hotel OS came to market last year as the most widely used, cloud-based property and rate management platform in the world. SkyTouch already has many new customers – at a pace ahead of others with cloud-based solutions in the marketplace for a longer time period.”
Understanding hoteliers’ needs has been Shane’s focus in his more than 20 years in the industry. Prior to joining SkyTouch earlier this year, he had enormous success in hotel franchise sales, where he focused on maximizing his customers’ ROI. That effort and experience make Shane an ideal choice to build and lead this SkyTouch sales team.
Shane Platt and his team are building relationships with key influencers and decision makers in the hotel industry, and using those relationships to guide the continuing evolution of the innovative SkyTouch Hotel OS platform. Platt has added 10 new salespeople who have already added thousands of properties – ranging from individual hotels to large groups – to the company’s sales pipeline.
Platt shares his vision, saying, “Through my career, I have learned first-hand the critical importance of having a reliable, intuitive, simple and economical property management system. Without it, I have seen how independent hotels and small chains are at a massive disadvantage as they compete in today’s demanding hospitality industry. I am excited to be able to bring our innovative, cloud-based SkyTouch solution to properties where it can make a real difference – positioning them to be more profitable and successful. SkyTouch is a real game-changer, the kind of simple yet powerful solution that until recently had only been available to one of the largest hotel companies.”
