MSI (Multi-Systems, Inc.), in concert with Libra OnDemand, is launching the "Ultimate Hotel Technology Make-Over," a contest awarding one hotel winner, per category (full service and limited/select service) a complete technology make-over.
Kicking off the week of HITEC through September 25th, submissions will be accepted electronically. Hoteliers wishing to participate can obtain further information at www.HOTELTECHMAKEOVER.com. Applicants will be asked to respond to a few questions and provide examples relating to their current technology platform, what changes they desire to make, and barriers they currently face.
"Over the years we have heard from prospects and clients alike that, while they deal with many vendors on a regular basis, the one area they wish they could overcome is that of dealing with multiple vendors through an upgrade or new installation; trying to coordinate and avoid finger pointing seems to be an effort. By initiating a contest like this, MSI, Libra OnDemand and a variety of other hospitality technology vendors will demonstrate how working together to break down barriers leads to a very successful implementation," commented MSI's President, Tim Tiller, MSW. "Having the ability to bring together multiple disciplines and new technology to two properties gives everyone the opportunity not only to see a cooperative effort, but to test drive some of the latest and greatest next generation technology, like the iPhone / iTouch applications we have developed," Tiller further commented.
MSI is a hospitality technology solutions provider of property management, sales and catering, point of sale, client relationship management, business intelligence, and web-booking software. Libra OnDemand is a hospitality technology provider of CRM, Business Analytics and features a customer portal: technology in the cloud.
The contest will be judged by an independent panel and winning profiles will be presented on the web-site for others to follow along in the process. An independent consultant will lead the evaluation and make recommendations for vendors and participants. Hospitality Technology magazine will provide editorial coverage of the Ultimate Hotel Technology Make-Over contest, from launch through the technology make-over, with a comprehensive panel profile review at the publication's Hotel Technology Forum 2010 in Las Vegas.
Libra OnDemand and MSI along with other industry leading technology vendors will provide opportunities throughout the contest for input and review via blog(s) and tweets. Be sure to check often and follow the progress through removing barriers to getting business done.
