Hotel Information Systems (HIS), a leading provider of innovative hospitality technology solutions, announced that epitome.NET version 2.0 is now available for worldwide general release.

This achievement in the company’s end-to-end Internet-native technology initiatives further answers the growing demand for centralized deployment among enterprise customers. epitome.NET is an ASP application based upon Microsoft’s .NET™ framework, which itself is designed to provide robust distributed services over the Internet/Intranet. “This product is not a 'Web-enabled' application; it is a true Internet-native solution, which is a significant distinction as more buyers understand the importance of deploying solutions designed from the ground up to run as an Internet application,” said Hotel Information Systems’ president & CEO, Brian Kretzmer. Clients who have already deployed this solution have realized benefits to include: Higher quality software with enhanced flexibility to adapt to market requirements. The framework allows HIS to develop XML services quickly and integrate them easily with other applications. Every aspect of the software development life cycle is made easier, from the creation of user applications and interfaces to debugging and deploying the solution. Developing in today’s technology always provides a wider array of resources including a wealth of utility and add-on libraries to quickly enhance the product and build new features. Reduced infrastructure, reduced software and hardware costs, reduced system administration. Many of the benefits that apply to any centrally deployed solution apply to this deployment; however, there is no need for middleware, therefore the amount of hardware, infrastructure software and system administration required for the deployment is reduced. Supportability is greatly enhanced as there is only one version of the application for the entire enterprise, each workstation does not require a copy of the software. Version control from the single property to the worldwide enterprise is more easily accomplished. This product more easily allows for hosted deployment wherein a client can shift much of the system administration responsibility and cost to a central location or even securely to a third party whose business it is to provide up-to-date security, equipment, security and system administration skill sets. This release is a significant step in the company’s initiative to provide hoteliers with a flexible, cost effective technology platform that drives positive results. Hotel Information Systems’ integrated corporate-to-property solution provides their clients with the tools and connectivity they need to respond to increasingly demanding booking sources and optimize processes around relationships, especially the guest. A “connected hotelier” is able to focus on its greatest asset; people who deliver superior guest service. By: Date: 06/16/2006 10:32:30 AM
