NORTHWIND, a provider of Maestro Enterprise Property Management hotel software and reservation software solutions for hospitality, announced the ARAMARK-managed Fluno Center for Executive Education has installed the integrated Maestro Property Management System (PMS) and Maestro Sales and Catering to manage operations.

The Fluno Center, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was ranked No. 1 in the world for food and accommodations in executive education custom programs by the Financial Times for the third straight year in 2006.

“The Fluno Center installed Maestro PMS because NORTHWIND delivers great technology and much more,”  said Fluno Center General Manager Jeffrey Butler.  “NORTHWIND is the only company that offered a true partner relationship with the Fluno Center. They understand hospitality system implementation goes beyond a vendor agreement.  NORTHWIND adapted its solutions to the Fluno Center’s unique requirements and is continuing to surpass our expectations.” 
 
Butler stated that the Fluno Center’s operations team particularly values Maestro’s free online training webinars where they gain expertise with the system.  The Fluno Center is utilizing the Maestro PMS to streamline front office operations and installed the integrated Maestro Sales and Catering systems to automate its extensive conference facilities. Both Maestro applications share NORTHWIND’s advanced single-image database technology for instant access to all group and guest information throughout the property for optimum services.
 
Warren Dehan, president of NORTHWIND’s U.S. operations, said, “The Fluno Center management team understood the value of having a conference center’s PMS and banquet event system on the same platform.  They operate a high-volume, high-profile conference center for business professionals who are used to the very best.  We analyzed Fluno’s unique requirements and are delivering technology that enables them to operate more efficiently and deliver optimum guest services.”
