Focus Hotels to implement protel Multi-Property Edition PMS from Xn Hotel Systems
Peter Cashman stated: “We selected Xn and protel after an evaluation of six major vendors and based the decision on the product’s pedigree, richness of functionality across all modules, interfaces to key third parties, centralised options, vendor hosting facilities and references provided by existing customers”.
Xn will implement protel MPE in a fully centralised and hosted multi-property environment across all 11 hotels by November 2009. Additional integrated modules selected include protel Conference and Banqueting and protel Sales and Marketing.
