StayNTouch, an innovator in mobile technology and Property Management Systems (PMS) for hotels, is pleased to announce it has partnered with the Origin Hotel, a new hotel brand focused on local experiences. StayNTouch has deployed its Rover PMS™ and Zest™ products at the first Origin Hotel in Red Rocks, Colorado with plans for deployment at upcoming hotels in Lexington, Kentucky, Raleigh, North Carolina and Westminster, Colorado.
“Our focus is on expanding the hotel guest experience by sharing the best places to eat, drink and things to do in our communities,” said Martin Hanson of the Schulte Hospitality Group, the operator of Origin Hotel, “We have taken the typical front desk and reconfigured it. We have replaced the front desk staff with a team of “Locals” who will assist our guests not only in hotel services but in creating new experiences in the surrounding local area. The front desk itself has been replaced by a community table allowing our Locals to engage with guests side-by-side without being tied to a terminal.”
“When looking for a PMS for our brand, StayNTouch was the perfect complement to our service model, “ Mr. Hanson continued, “The PMS is easy-to-use, cloud-based and portable. Our Locals will have the PMS running on mobile devices they carry as they engage with guests throughout the property. StayNTouch has given us the flexibility required to evolve as we grow the Origin brand.”
StayNTouch offers hotels the opportunity to integrate multiple cloud-solutions on one platform:
- Rover PMS™: Next generation Hotel PMS, fully cloud, fits on every device, optimizes hotel operations from front desk, to groups, to housekeeping to revenue management. Simple monthly pricing that includes training, integrations and configuration.
- Zest™: Enables guest pre-engagement and guest services via mobile web. Guest-enabled mobile check-in & out via smart phone or desktop. Private labeled, PMS-integrated mobile check-in &/or checkout. Bill review, preference collection, upsell opportunities, and remote key fulfillment. Promote and monetize late checkouts.
“We are excited to be working with the Origin team as they launch the brand,” said Jos Schaap, CEO-Founder of StayNTouch, “Their ideas about active and mobile guest engagement sync perfectly with strengths of our mobile PMS. We are looking forward to being their technology partner with them as they grow their portfolio.”
