stayntouch and lightspeed

Bethesda, MD – September 27, 2016 – StayNTouch, an innovator in mobile technology and Property Management Systems (PMS) for hotels, is very happy to announce a new integration between Rover™, its Cloud-based property management system (PMS) and Lightspeed’s Cloud-based restaurant point-of-sale (POS) system. The new two-way interface allows hotel restaurants to communicate guest and billing information between the hotel’s POS and the restaurant’s POS.

Lightspeed’s Restaurant POS, is a mobile, end-to-end restaurant management platform that provides everything from efficient table-side ordering and employee management to reporting and accounting. Integration with the StayNTouch PMS let’s hotel guests have the flexibility to place their food order anywhere they would like within the hotel and charge their hotel room directly.

Lightspeed’s President, JP Chauvet, commented, “Both companies share the goal of using cloud-based technologies to improve the guest experience while improving operational efficiency. Guests checking into the hotel, then ordering from the hotel restaurant, will see a continuity in service experience that will lead to better impressions, better reviews and referrals to friends.”

Amongst other clients the integration between StayNTouch PMS and Lightspeed is live at the Zoku in Amsterdam, and is set to roll out in many more hotel/restaurant locations over the next months globally.

“The cloud-to-cloud integration with Lightspeed is a boon for hotel’s looking for a painless way to connect restaurant operations to their PMS,” said Jos Schaap, CEO and Founder of StayNTouch. “We’re excited to be working with another company that is also focused on the mobile experience, excellent software interface design and cloud architecture.”
