Columbia, MD, United States, 2013/05/24 - Louvre Hotels Group, a major player in the hotel industry in France and worldwide, has renewed its contract with MICROS Systems - Louvre-Hotels.com / MICROS.com. NASDAQ: MCRS
MICROS Systems, a leading provider of information systems for the hotel industry, has partnered with the Louvre Hotels Group since 1993. Since 2006, MICROS Systems has deployed its OPERA cloud application to over 700 of the Group's hotels (Première Classe, Campanile, Kyriad and Golden Tulip) in 43 countries. Opera provides a fully centralized PMS hotel management system in SaaS mode (Software as a Service).
SaaS avoids the need for individual companies to install applications on their own servers; they subscribe to online software services instead. Applications are therefore no longer maintained by the company, and data storage is outsourced.
All Opera-enabled hotels share simultaneous access to this application, which provides real-time data updates. Hotel guests can also benefit from new smartphone services, such as a booking application (available for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone), and an Easy Check-In/Out service, accessible from computers or smartphones, so that guests can manage their bookings while on the road.
Opera can also be used to centralize bookings made with over 850 hotels through all electronic distribution channels, including internet, GDS (Global Distribution System) and smartphones.
Thierry Guiraudios, SVP Information Systems, is delighted about the renewed partnership. "This news heralds a new stage in our partnership with MICROS Systems. The Louvre Hotels Group and MICROS Systems both share a core commitment to technological innovation, which means that we can focus on the future together".
