HRS PMS Interface

Bi-directional interface between Optima PMS and HRS allows a direct flow of information between the two leading systems making the German hoteliers’ life even more simple, easy and trouble-free.

Silverbyte Systems announced today that it has completed integration and implementation of the new interface to HRS, Germany's most popular hotel portal, at all Leonardo Hotels across Europe. The interface will help the hoteliers to streamline distribution, revenues and bookings processes from their Optima Hotel Management System to HRS. Silverbyte Sytems is going live with the new release that offers an interface to HRS that was established in Summer 2010 and Silverbyte was the choosen as HRS' PMS launch Partner for the direct interface.

From now on hotels subscribed to Optima Global Online Connections can manage online all availability, restrictions and reservation data with HRS as they do with many other online sales channels, GDS and IDS, directly from Optima Property Management System.

Commenting on the development , Daniel Roger , CEO of Leonardo Hotels , has described : “I am very happy and proud to announce this new connectivity solution which joins other technological advancements we are focusing on . Leonardo Hotels proves again that its strategical focus on technology and technological advancements is proving valuable both to our owners and customers alike . We already see great extended results within the few months that the solution is working and we are sure this will strengthen even more our business relationship with HRS , as well as provide better operating results to our hotels ."

"We are very pleased with the direct connect to Leonardo Hotels through Optima as it represents our first PMS interface. HRS is focused to optimize the distribution cost within the electronic distribution value chain and this direct interface compliments this strategy as it represents a further decrease in distribution costs for Leonardo Hotels" says Tobias Ragge, CEO of HRS.

 
Optima bi-directional global online channel management connection (GOC) allows Optima PMS users to update rates and availability to hundreds of online travel booking channels and the four major Global Distribution Systems (GDS) from the PMS via numerous sales channels connected to Optima. This interface includes automatic process of booking data made through Internet Distribution Systems (IDS) directly into Optima PMS.
