Technology Integration Lets Hotels Be Green and Efficient
The combination of the SynergyMMS mobile maintenance management system from Systems Associates Inc. with the INNcontrol 3 system from INNCOM is offering hoteliers a connection between guestroom automation and operational efficiency that results in a hotel's ability to use energy wisely, not wastefully. Guests are able to rest comfortably while hotels run at their highest levels of customer satisfaction and operational efficiency and operators can anticipate guest issues before they escalate, performing preventive maintenance and distributing work orders throughout the property. This collaborative effort between SAI and INNCOM is proving to enhance each other's functionality to the benefit of each hotel.
SynergyMMS is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution designed to enhance asset life and longevity by creating "synergy" between front office, engineering and housekeeping staff for enhanced workflow and communications. INNcontrol 3 is a powerful, client-server application that provides a robust communications solution for properties with INNCOM’s Energy Management and Integrated Room Automation Systems (IRAS). It delivers innovative room monitoring and control capabilities and provides efficient information presentation to staff and management. Combined, the two systems enhance each other’s functionally for the overall benefit of each property.
The common belief is that optimal energy savings only needs a property-management system interface. While exchanging critical guest data through a PMS is an important means for effective energy management, hotels have discovered that to attain maximum efficiency and visibility, interfacing INNcontrol™ 3 software with systems such as SynergyMMS provide far more operational efficiencies.
Like SynergyMMS, INNcontrol™ 3 provides real time monitoring concerning matters from the guestroom such as HVAC performance, humidity levels, target temperatures, guest requests and occupancy status. When something is wrong, it gets immediately detected, then deployed, so that corrective action can take place before it reaches the guest’s attention or requires costly emergency repairs throughout the hotel.
