New Openness at Hotel Concepts – Brilliant With Launch of iTesso
iTesso component- based platform goes beyond open source software
“We are not just creating another Central Reservation System CRS or PMS,” stated Bas Blommaart, president and CTO for Hotel Concepts - Brilliant.
iTesso features a unique open interface, acting as a powerful black box. The application program interface (API) heavily depends on the OTA and HTNG specifications. As an industry first, not only is the back-end open to external developers, also the front-end may be developed by the hotel chain’s own IT department or third parties. Inventory and guest profile data may be consumed from external sources, like hotel chains’ CRS or CRM systems. This approach facilitates the phased move from legacy systems to new open platforms with minimum operational disruption.
“Hotel Concepts – Brilliant is not only focusing on the larger hotel chains,” adds Patrick van der Wardt, managing director of Hotel Concepts – Brilliant. “The system is well suited for mid-sized and smaller hotel chains as well, because of the scaled approach.”
Available modules include:
- Direct Connects
iTesso will be made available as licensed software as a service (SaaS). It is developed using industry standard tools, like Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise and the .Net platform. Hotel Concepts – Brilliant is a Microsoft Gold Partner.As a first step to show that the new openness is not just a concept, Hotel Concepts Brilliant is displaying the DVD with the actual source code of iTesso at HITEC 2009, booth 740.
