The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) will begin offering its nearly 18,000 members its own AAHOA Property Management System (PMS) powered by AutoClerk®, a PMS technology pioneer.
AutoClerk and AAHOA, whose members own about one in every two hotel properties in the United States, are partnering to deliver a pure cloud PMS solution that can serve both independent and franchise hotels.
AutoClerk has been building mission-critical software for the hospitality industry since 1986. Serving both independent and major hotel brands in North America – including Best Western and RLH Corporation – its property management systems are built to interface with more than 50 hospitality technology platforms, including eight central reservation systems.
AutoClerk has pioneered a variety of hospitality technologies. The 2003 launch of ResOnTheWeb™ was a fully integrated PMS web-booking engines, and the company’s pure-cloud PMS technology requires only a device with a browser and internet connection. AutoClerk was an early PMS adopter of credit card tokenization and EMV (chip) technologies. Pushing tokenization to a logical extreme, AutoClerk’s cloud PMS data center does not store, process or transmit sensitive cardholder data.
AutoClerk President Gary Gibb explained that the partnership allows AAHOA members to tap into critical cloud PMS technology. “The PMS is a core technology need for every hotelier. The AAHOA PMS will give hoteliers mobile access to their PMS from anywhere, anytime. They don’t have to be tethered to the front desk and can manage reservations, accounting, housekeeping and other activities from any device that has an internet connection and a browser.”
The AAHOA PMS will be supported 24/7 by a U.S.-based support staff that is experienced both technically and in hotel operations.
AAHOA President & CEO Chip Rogers said, “This new and exciting partnership will give AAHOA members access to a preferred PMS technology at an affordable price. AutoClerk has the technical expertise and proven track record that AAHOA members can trust.”
