Bethesda, MD /PRNewswire/ - Stayntouch, a global leader in cloud hotel property management systems (PMS) and guest-centric technologies, today announced the launch of Stayntouch 2.0, a fully integrated technology suite featuring an amplified version of its flagship cloud PMS and guest kiosk. The new technology suite also includes a secure payment gateway, a customizable booking engine, and an easy-to-use channel manager, enabling hotel companies to expand their online distribution and booking capabilities, simplify payments, and streamline multi-property management.
Stayntouch 2.0 is the culmination of two years of work and $15 million of investment in development.
The hotel PMS remains the most significant technology impacting operations, especially in today's highly competitive labor market. With Stayntouch 2.0, hotels can rely on one trusted vendor to deliver a fully integrated technology stack that includes:
- Stayntouch PMS: Easy to use and easy to train on, the flexible and cloud-native PMS solution now offers an improved group module, advanced allowance and packages functionality, and enhanced multi-property features. Hotels can deliver better service with a fully mobile platform, robust automation, mobile guest check-in, and automated upsells that drive real ROI.
- Chain Management: Now, hotel groups, brands, and management companies can seamlessly manage their entire chain, while delivering on unique concepts and service standards. Stayntouch's Chain Management features an intuitive Chain Dashboard that allows hotels to easily switch between chain, group, and individual property viewpoints while managing availability across the entire brand.
- Stayntouch Pay: Hotels can now cut out the middlemen and leverage a secure end-to-end payment solution that's fully integrated with their PMS. Stayntouch Pay handles every aspect of payment facilitation, including processing, acquisition, and settlement — delivering one transparent bill with no hidden fees and direct priority support.
- Stayntouch Booking Engine: With a mobile optimized, easy-to-build, and customizable booking page, hotels can streamline the guest booking experience and drive direct bookings.
- Channel Manager: By optimizing all hotels' booking channels, the channel manager enables hotels to scale their business globally.
