In tough economic times, it's human nature to look for ways to save money. Savvy travelers are hitting the internet to look for deals now more than ever. Using MSI's Web-Booking Engine, along with property management, levels the playing field while allowing you to run and manage your business as necessary
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
MSI (Multi-Systems, Inc.) announces the release of its Real-Time Web-Booking Engine today. Hospitality technology solutions continue to grow under the guided eye of development at MSI. In addition to providing comprehensive property management solutions, MSI delivers supporting products to meet the needs of select and full-service properties. Adding the Web-Booking Engine to the MSI portfolio leverages both the strength of MSI's hospitality technology solutions as well as the breadth and magnitude of properties that MSI is serving.
Traditional websites that require guests to initiate an e-mail to request information and make reservations can lead to lost bookings, reduced productivity, and nightmares with inventory balancing. In identifying the type of solution that would provide the industry with the most benefit, MSI evaluated existing sites, spoke to clients, and learned what was and was not working. MSI found many of the bolt-on web-booking solutions require a property to set aside rooms exclusively for web reservations, leading to inventory issues within the property management solution.
MSI's property management solutions with the integrated Web-Booking Engine resolves this. Both hospitality technology solutions draw information on inventory availability from the same database. The benefits include inventory balance, increased productivity by not having to manage room allocations, increased guest satisfaction, the ability to manage restrictions, and one confirmation number, just to name a few.
The convenience of real-time web-booking is proving invaluable in attracting web-savvy guests and opening up new methods of revenue for hotels. Online channels are estimated to generate 60% of US travel bookings by 2009, making web booking a must-have for successful properties.

"MSI is committed to providing timely, leading-edge hospitality technology solutions for our clients."
