New Hartford, NY – (September 11, 2014) — 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 announces their growing partnership with Scout Hotels and the ATRIO Property Management System.
Established in 2004, Scout Hotels owns and operates a portfolio of extraordinary properties across New England and Florida. Focused on guest service and satisfaction, Scout strives to create a memorable experience for every guest and takes a hands-on approach to ensure each hotel is meeting the needs of its visitors.
Scout Hotels has installed ATRIO into their HarborView Place and CapeWind Waterfront Resort properties with additional properties to be scheduled shortly.
“Subscription-based offerings are many and varied. Ultimately, it was the strength of the company backing ATRIO that narrowed the field.” commented Glenn Gates, Chief Information Officer for Scout Hotels. “The intuitive user interface allows us to install the system without enduring a long and intensive training process. New employees get up to speed with the system quickly saving us time and expense of training.”
A true built-for-the-cloud solution, ATRIO moves hospitality to a new user experience and a new way of doing business. By leveraging all the capabilities of Microsoft Windows Azure, ATRIO dramatically reduces on-property technology requirements and data security risks. PAR Springer-Miller uses agile development methods with ATRIO, resulting in frequent product releases.
“We’re pleased with the velocity with which PAR Springer-Miller issues new releases for ATRIO,” Gates added. “This demonstrates their commitment to continually advancing the product. We like to bring modern technology and systems to the hotels we manage, and implementing a cloud-based solution like ATRIO helps us achieve that goal as well as reducing onsite technology needs and overall costs.”
“ATRIO represents the most significant advancement in property and distribution technology in over twenty-five years. We invested considerable energy in designing a platform that solves many of the issues that plague our industry, not the least of which includes usability,” commented Larry Hall, President and CEO of PAR Springer-Miller. “Scout Hotels represents a thought leader in our industry and they understand the wide array of benefits ATRIO brings to their operations. We’re delighted to welcome Scout Hotels to our growing list of users that represents the innovators and practice leaders in our industry,”
With ATRIO, PAR Springer-Miller has pioneered and delivered a new generation of technology for the hospitality industry; moving the hospitality industry to The Cloud, to a new user experience, and to a new way of doing business. The ATRIO hospitality technology platform continues to expand with ATRIO POS and ATRIO Distribution, reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for hoteliers and management companies by embracing true cloud computing, minimizing on-property technology, and reducing implementation and training costs to increase staff efficiency and productivity.
