Above Property®, a full-service provider of scalable, and services-oriented platforms, will showcase its latest innovations for travel and hospitality — including Hotel in a Box and Above Property Services (APS), a web service-based multi-cloud platform — at the annual Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC).

At the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, from September 27th-30th, HITEC attendees and media are invited to meet with the Above Property team at booth #3614 to learn more and see the pioneering solutions in action. Above Property offers a one-stop shop of cloud-native apps including Property Management, Reservations, Revenue Optimization, Distribution, Channel Management, Internet Booking Engine, Call Center, Pantry, Housekeeping, Maintenance, Payments, and Advanced Analytics.

“We created Above Property as a much-needed solution for an industry that has relied on antiquated technology that lacks the ability to scale or meet the emerging demand opportunities,” explains company CEO and co-founder Aaron Shepherd. “We reimaged the traditional tech stack and developed a single, agile and advanced platform with an ecosystem of solutions. Hoteliers can simplify the number of systems needed to manage their guests’ experience, increase revenue, and run operations seamlessly for today and be ready for the ever-changing future.”

With more than 1,100 web services driving more than 10,000 unique features and capabilities, Above Property’s Distributed Reservations, Inline Revenue Management®, Channel Management, Call Center, and Property Management System (PMS) work to re-imagine how core travel systems operate today. Above Property also offers a signature ‘Hotel in a Box’ solution designed for independent hotel properties. This single platform includes all required functionality, giving hoteliers the technological infrastructure necessary to truly connect with their guests and drive ancillary revenues. Through an orchestrated multi-datacenter, multi-cloud provider configuration, Above Property brings a new level of speed, stability, and cost-effective scalability to the travel industry.

“We are incredibly excited to bring our APS platform to HITEC this year and showcase the power of microservice technology to some of the greatest minds in the industry,” shares Shepherd. “As the hospitality industry enters a period of recovery, our technology is well-positioned to lead the charge to a more innovative and flexible future for hotels.”

The Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®) is the largest and oldest hospitality technology event. Produced by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), a global nonprofit hospitality association headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, HITEC offers a unique combination of top-notch education and brings together the brightest minds and hottest technologies from across the globe to one place.
