Comtrol’s Lodging Link and NOVEXSYS Partner to Provide Easy-to-use, Scalable Solutions for Hotels
MINNEAPOLIS — November 19, 2007 …
Comtrol Corp. is proud to announce it’s 60th Lodging Link partner, NOVEXSYS. Comtrol’s Lodging Link product provides enterprise integration systems to the hospitality industry, creating seamless communications between a hotel’s property-management system and its guest-service systems, such as PBX, voice mail, call accounting, in-room Internet access, point-of-sale, in-room movie, keyless entry, mini bar, and energy management.
NOVEXSYS, meaning “new standard in hotel systems,” is the hospitality industry’s newest Web-based, OTA-compliant property-management software. Designed by Centrada Solutions LLC, NOVEXSYS entered the hospitality marketplace in September, and is one of the only PMS solutions that is Software as a Service (SaaS) based and operates with a hotel’s existing hardware. It is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework and there are no licensing fees. Because it is Web based, it can be installed in minutes on existing hardware.
“NOVEXSYS is perfectly paired with Lodging Link technology and our business model,” said Bradford Beale, vice president of Comtrol Corp. “Our joint solution offers service-oriented hotels a scalable, affordable, and easy-to-use solution.”
Operating in a SaaS environment means hotels only pay fees based on services used. There no longer is a need to purchase expensive software licenses or maintain software updates. When NOVEXSYS is upgraded, all properties receive the upgrade at the same time via the Web and at no extra cost. The simple user interface requires minimal training, no new hardware and further lowers cost by eliminating the need for installers to travel to the hotel property.
“NOVEXSYS was created to meet the needs of small to mid-sized property owners who said they want a state-of-the-art PMS that can be installed with minimal up-front expense and which isn’t bloated with features and functions they do not need and will never use,” said Steve Woodward president of Centrada, developer of NOVEXSYS. “Our mission is to provide just the services smaller hotels need at a at a price-point they were comfortable with.
“Lodging Link is a natural choice for us as our hotel guest-device interface provider,” he added. “They allowed us to select just the interfaces we want from their extensive library, installed via the Web. With more than 10 years of experience in supporting the majority of hospitality PMS vendors, we are confident that they will deliver the interfaces we need as we continue to sign a growing base of customers.
