EZYield.com and SoftBrands Commence Offering of Integrated Software Suite Through New Global Technology Partnership
“Property management systems are the best place to centralize and streamline operations because of the volume of information that can be fed into, and derived from a single database,” stated Ed St. Onge, president of EZYield.com. “With this partnership, we now have the ability to pull rate and inventory settings directly from the SoftBrands PMS to push to all of our OTA and traditional wholesalers, which currently include 430 sites. We can also push reservations from any of our travel partners compatible with our rez-delivery product back to the PMS. Our WBE and GDS can push and pull ARI and bookings seamlessly, so it is a very powerful and efficient operation.”
While many current SoftBrands clients already use EZYield.com for channel management distribution, the new integrated platform provides hoteliers with the ability to automate and create technological efficiencies that were not previously available. The integrated software suite consists of three additional products: RoomRez, a unique reservations technology for rates and inventory restrictions that is tied directly to a company’s or property’s website; GDSConnect, a two-way link from the PMS to the global distribution systems (GDS); and EZYield.com, the original channel managementsoftware with the industry’s largest number of connections to OTAs and third-party reservation services.
“The addition of complementary specialized technologies to EZYield.com’s industry leading channel management solution has greatly expanded their capabilities,” stated Joseph Flynn, SoftBrands’ VP of sales for Americas, Europe and Africa. “This groundbreaking partnership affects the future of hospitality technology and most importantly provides important benefits for our clients. It has the potential to be one of the most significant, beneficial and technologically advanced integrations we’ve done, and I hope our clients closely examine the advantages our two solutions bring to their bottom line.”
The EZYield.com partnership with SoftBrands is a result of the two companies working closely together for several years in order to develop solutions that benefit their mutual clients. The partnership also represents an investment in continuing this relationship for future technology updates and upgrades. “At Ezyield.com, we are focused on creating specialized technologies that meet the needs of hoteliers around the world, and our partnerships, like the one with SoftBrands, allow us to provide them with the most advanced and efficient solutions possible,” stated St, Onge. “That customer service mentality has always been a staple of our company and it is a philosophy that we share with SoftBrands and all of our technology partners.”
Both EZYield.com and SoftBrands demonstrated their software solutions at HITEC 2009 in Anaheim, CA from June 22-25, 2009.
