The Web-enabled system is based on a service-oriented architectural framework that offers maximum flexibility and minimal upkeep.
The latest version of LMS offers enhancements in virtually every area of the solution, including accounting, housekeeping, online booking, operations, reporting and security. Its streamlined approach to cashiering gives system administrators flexibility and peace of mind; iPad® check-in/check-out provides a mobile solution focused on meeting the needs of front desk staff while enabling properties to offer dynamic guest service; and interface alert monitor capabilities offer real-time notification of interface errors so that problems can be resolved quickly and efficiently.
