IDS Next Launches SkyRes, Cloud-based Central Reservation System for Group and Chain Hotels
With SkyRes, hoteliers can simplify the reservation process and grow revenue.
Bangalore, 29th June 2015: IDS Next Business Solutions Pvt. Ltd, a global leader in providing Hotel ERP and software solutions to hospitality and leisure industries, today announced the launch of a new product, SkyRes. Their cloud-based central reservation system has been crafted for the niche needs of chain and group hospitality properties. SkyRes is the first product that has been introduced as part of the company’s Sky Suite of solutions and has been built on Microsoft Azure platform. With SkyRes, chain and group hospitality properties can now leverage a robust, end-to-end reservation solution.
SkyRes is seamlessly integrated with IDS Next Hotel ERP and offers reservation staff real-time visibility into room availability across hotel chain and locations. Some of the key features of this central reservation system are real-time booking console for sales agents and instant booking confirmation for guests via email. Hotels using SkyRes can have access to global distribution system (GDS) and other online distribution platforms from a single window as well. This reservation system for hotels enables users to centrally maintain room types, rate codes, market segments and business sources for all the group’s properties.
Speaking about SkyRes Central Reservation System for today’s competitive hospitality business, Mr. Binu Mathews, CEO at IDS Next said, “The multi-property itinerary in SkyRes enables chain and group hotels to efficiently centralize and streamline the reservation process. It also introduces flexibility on location of personnel, simplifies installation and maintenance, and has advanced data security.”
Since large hotel chains work closely with travel agents, SkyRes has a special login for travel agents to make real-time reservations, amendments, cancellations, re-instate cancellations, and inquire into bookings, all over the internet. Travel agents can also generate arrival reports, booking reports, and sales office details. They can view guest history, guest visit report and search by guest profile.
Speaking on the expanding features of SkyRes, Mr. Jacob K.I, Vice President – Business Development at IDS Next says, “This scalable central reservation system goes beyond just centralized booking and is designed to enable hotels to boost revenues by selling non-room items such as meal plan, tours, spa treatment and other offerings. On the analytics front, SkyRes enables users to generate a host of actionable reports and look-ups other than property-wise reports.”
Srikanth Karnakota, Director, Server and Cloud Business, Microsoft India said, “We are excited to see IDS Next develop the ingenious solution, SkyRes, on Microsoft Azure. The scalability, robustness, flexibility and efficiency of Microsoft Azure, the most powerful cloud platform, makes SkyRes the next generation solution for the hospitality sector. We believe that this solution will provide the fast growing hospitality sector in India the desired technology boost.”
