protel and Posera Announce an Integration of Cloud Property Management System and Maitre’D Point-of-Sale Solution to Power Hotel Operations
Atlanta and Montreal— November 21 —protel, provider of cloud-based advanced hospitality systems, and Posera, a global leader of hospitality industry software, announce the integration of protel’s property management system (PMS) and the Maitre’D point-of-sale solution (POS), offering hoteliers a best-in-class, complete property management solution.
protel and Posera have developed a two-way interfacing system, creating a powerful and flexible management platform which allows free communication within a complex hospitality framework. Hospitality properties can communicate guest and billing information through protel’s innovative cloud PMS, protel’s Enterprise Hospitality Platform, and food and beverage venues through the feature-rich Maitre’D POS, instantaneously reconciling sales data and consolidating sales reporting across the property or property group.
In recent years, Posera has developed PMS interface APIs for its Maitre’D POS and successfully answered the increasing demand of hotels and other types of hospitality properties for a holistic view of every aspect of an operation. Maitre’D POS supports all facets of a hotel’s F&B operations in thousands of properties across dozens of countries. Maitre’D integrates with PMS systems across 16 revenue categories and includes a user-friendly modular back-office for instantaneous menu updating, employee management, and real-time cloud reporting.
protel’s PMS is built upon its Enterprise Hospitality Platform technology, protel.IO, and is one of the world’s most dynamic and future-proof property management systems. The PMS platform is designed for flexibility and scalability, making it easy for hotels to implement new initiatives and enabling them to continuously improve the guest experience using system speed, functionality, and efficiency.
“Partnering with protel, a powerful PMS solution with a strong presence in the European market, allows us to provide hotels, a complex ecosystem, a 360-degree view of operations,” said Dan Poirier, Posera’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our integrated solution helps hotels best position themselves for today’s competitive environment, including maximizing employee productivity, capturing significant operating cost efficiencies, while bolstering business and guest loyalty.”
“As protel continues its expansion into the North American market, we are thrilled to partner with Posera and its state-of-the-art Maitre’D product,” said Christopher McKenzie, Director of Sales North America at protel. “protel understands very well the delicate range of requirements that hotel properties demand, and we always aim to provide our 14,000 plus customers around the globe with all the tools they need for success. Together with Posera’s Maitre’D system, we built an integration that allows hoteliers to have a complete and robust management solution.”
“The Hotel sector is an important part of Posera’s growth strategy, and integrations with property management providers give Maitre’D a significant competitive advantage,” said Akash Sahai, EVP Strategy and Business Development. “The partnership with protel, an especially prominent PMS provider, only strengthens this Maitre’D competitive differentiator, and allows us to turn the operating challenges of hotels into opportunities for Posera.”
