Stowe, VT — June 26, 2012 — PAR Springer-Miller Systems, Inc. (PSMS) — a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) and the leading provider of guest-centric hospitality management systems – today named Pegasus Solutions as a preferred central reservations provider in the ATRIO Platform Partner Exchange (APPX). This partnership provides for very tightly coupled integration between Pegasus’ RezView NG central reservations system and the new ATRIO® Guest Experience Management platform.
APPX represents a comprehensive program based on a shared commitment to bring greater value to the industry through more tightly integrated technologies and services, expanded capabilities, and an unsurpassed customer satisfaction philosophy. The innovative design of the ATRIO hospitality technology platform includes an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) in a loosely coupled n-tier architecture that enables an entirely new level of systems integration, unmatched in the industry today.
By pursuing a ‘Hotel-in-the-cloud’ integration strategy, PAR Springer-Miller and Pegasus will deliver a true competitive advantage for hoteliers. This combination of the world class services of PAR Springer-Miller and Pegasus will leverage the continued investments in innovative solutions that both companies are delivering to the industry.
“RezView NG was designed from the ground-up to enable true integration with property management systems (PMS) and other applications. Integration with ATRIO will allow hotel companies to leverage RezView NG’s sophisticated rate and inventory functionality on property as well as through all distribution channels,” said Steve Lapekas, chief information officer for Pegasus Solutions. “Collaborating closely with PAR Springer Miller, we can tailor this solution to meet the critical business needs of our mutual customers.”
The APPX program expands the existing relationship between PAR Springer-Miller and Pegasus Solutions by offering closer collaboration from product development and integration, to deployment and customer support. Both companies recognize that this collaboration represents an opportunity to exceed customer expectations and fulfills a growing need within the industry for greater vendor cooperation.
“We’re delighted with our new relationship with Pegasus. We believe that integrating RezView NG and ATRIO will make an unassailable combination of technology and services that raises the bar for innovation in our industry. Pegasus and PAR Springer-Miller have a long history of leadership in the global hospitality technology industry and I’m certain this initiative will reinforce our commitment to helping our mutual clients drive revenue growth, improve profitability and operating efficiency, and enable a wave of innovative guest services,” commented Larry Hall, President and CEO, PAR Springer-Miller.
