PAR Springer-Miller Systems, Inc. (PSMS) a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation and a leading provider of guest-centric hospitality management systems, announced that SMS|Host V16.0 with SMS|Diplomat v2.3 is certified under the Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG) certification program.

In an industry where so many systems must work in concert, the proven ability to communicate reservations, rates and availability across systems using OTA/HTNG messaging is a tremendous benefit to hotels. This certification indicates that SMS|Host V16.0 with SMS|Diplomat v2.3 demonstrates conformance to the property/distribution solution 2007a HTNG specifications.

“With this certification there can be no doubt that PAR Springer-Miller is committed to advancing hospitality technology,” said Sophie Grigg, vice president of research and development for PAR Springer-Miller. “When best-of-breed technologies come together collaboratively everyone wins–hoteliers, technology vendors and guests.”

HTNG is a non-profit global organization formed in 2002 to facilitate the development of next-generation, customer-centric technologies to meet the needs of the global hotel community. A first for the industry, HTNG developed this certification program in association with The Open Group, one of the world’s leading practitioners of certification programs. The HTNG certification program enables vendors to certify their products against open HTNG specifications. Hotels can then determine which vendors have completed certification of their products against specific capabilities and the environments in which performance is certified.

“We envision a future of hotel properties running multiple vendor systems communicating efficiently and reliably,” said Douglas Rice, executive vice president and CEO of HTNG. “HTNG certification ensures buyers a minimum level of interoperability with other products, reducing the cost and time involved in managing the complex systems needed to run the hotel of the future.”
