NORTHWIND-Maestro PMS, provider of Maestro Enterprise Property Management hotel software and reservation software solutions for the hospitality industry, announced new online revenue enhancements for its ResWave Web booking product suite.

Maestro ResWave now includes online dining table reservation management, dynamic guest experience customization and multiproperty package booking and fulfillment to increase online travel revenue that is expected by Jupiter Research to top $128 billion by 2011.

Forrester Research forecasts that 34.4 million households in the United States are booking online as people prefer point-and-click for travel reservations.  Corporate meeting planners are following suit with more group business than ever now being booked online.  ResWave is NORTHWIND’s comprehensive industry-leading Internet booking engine that enables operators to drive greater online revenue with Web services that leisure guests and corporate bookers are demanding.

The newest ResWave revenue generating features include dining table reservation management which lets operators optimize their dining outlet’s usage to maximize the number of covers and revenue with automated cover yield optimization.  When guests book their dining reservations online with their room, the system analyzes table space availability and party size, and recommends the best time to make a reservation to yield manage covers and outlet revenue.

ResWave also now enables guests to personalize their stay with guest experience customization functionality. ResWave enables guests to verify availability of spa space, dining reservations, tennis lessons and other activities to confirm their availability before they book a room.  Other booking engines force guests to reserve a room before they verify if services are available, but ResWave’s shopping cart format allows guests to immediately verify the services they enjoy are available to personalize their stay experience and add to the property’s bottom line.  

ResWave is fully integrated with all 20+ modules in Maestro Enterprise Property Management, which allows accurate real-time availability of rooms, spa attendants and treatment space, athletic coaches and dining space across multiple properties.  Guests can make reservations from one property’s booking engine and enjoy activities across all participating properties with all fees posted to a single folio for greater convenience.

The full Suite of additional ResWave online service capabilities also includes:

  • Dynamic package management
  • Group rooming list management
  • 360-degree guest preference tracking
  • SMS PDA communications to reach traveling guests

“NORTHWIND-Maestro PMS is continuing to enhance ResWave to maximize operators’ online revenue while providing guests with personalized services,” said Warren Dehan, president of NORTHWIND-Maestro PMS’ North America operations.  “ResWave delivers advanced online capabilities beginning with guests’ ability to add profitable amenities and events to their reservations before they arrive.  The added benefit for operators is their ability to have a 360-degree view of guests by tracking each preference decision in Maestro to create more effective marketing campaigns and develop personalized guest service initiatives.” 

All ResWave functionality, including online dynamic package customization, guest dining and event reservations and group management capabilities are integrated with Maestro’s real-time yield management to optimize property income from all revenue channels.  Properties experience greater productivity from ResWave because guests can for the first time reserve a wide variety of income producing add-on package and non-package property activities with their room booking without contacting property staff.    ResWave compliments NORTHWIND’s advanced Web connection functionality that includes online table reservations, ResEze Web booking engine and condo-timeshare owner account access, all designed to deliver optimal guest services and improve efficiency.

HITEC attendees are invited to participate in a Web connection exhibitor tutorial presented by Warren Dehan on Wednesday, June 18, from 1:30 – 2:00 p.m. in Tutorial Room A at the HITEC exhibit hall.
