iTesso Cloud-Native Hotel Software Solution to be Showcased Simultaneously at Two Shows on Two Continents

  • Itesso, an Amadeus Company

Hotel Concepts–Brilliant, a leading global provider of technology and software solutions for the hospitality industry, has announced that it will demonstrate its revolutionary iTesso solution this week, during two major trade events on both sides of the Atlantic.

iTesso will be demonstrated at the inaugural Independent Hotel 12 show in London, at Stand IH101, which is taking place on 16-17 October at Olympia London. In addition, iTesso is a sponsor of the 4th annual Lifestyle/Boutique Hotel Development Conference in Miami Beach, which is set for 17-19 October at the city’s storied Fontainebleu Hotel. Both events are aimed at luxury and boutique hoteliers, and will feature a variety of suppliers of hotel and technology products and services, as well as educational sessions.

“iTesso is an ideal solution for boutique and independent properties, due to its comprehensive features and cost-effective subscription-based pricing,” said Bas Blommaart, iTesso’s CEO. “It is also appropriate that it will be showcased simultaneously at these two global events. The unique Cloud-native platform is global by its very nature, allowing properties to be managed from anywhere on the planet with an internet connection, including mobile phones and tablets. This makes management of a property or multiple properties much easier for the busy boutique hotelier.”

The hospitality industry’s first true end-to-end cloud-native management platform, iTesso is an integrated property management system, distribution platform and central reservations system all rolled into a single intuitive solution. As a component-based hotel chain inventory and distribution management system, iTesso can be deployed as a direct connection between a hotel's CRS and the global distribution systems and alternate distribution systems, or as a distributed multi-property PMS with links to third-party CRS systems. In short, iTesso represents a brilliant new concept in technology convergence.

iTesso uses the Microsoft Windows Azure cloud infrastructure and, if fact, the entire application is hosted on Azure. Microsoft is responsible for the health of the hosting environment, while Hotel Concepts–Brilliant continuously manages the application. The interface connections are monitored and upgraded on a hotel and a centralized level. This offers hotel users unique value from the high degree of scalability and redundancy, something that is rarely economically feasible with a premise-based solution. Moreover, the Windows Azure platform is completely secure and reliable, with critical encrypted information redundantly stored at two data centres with seamless switching.

Hoteliers can deploy iTesso with the confidence of knowing that it will never become outdated. Functionality in iTesso is continuously added, and instead of the industry standard of just one or two major updates a year, iTesso publishes updates on a frequent and on-going basis. This ensures that hotels will never have to wait long to take advantage of any new features.

iTesso also includes an eLearning component. The eLearning functionality allows users to independently train themselves, allowing hoteliers to deal more efficiently with staff turnover and to improve customer satisfaction scores, while eliminating the need to hire expensive consultants. Hotel Concepts–Brilliant provides complete functional support for iTesso users, ensuring that the system is fully deployed and optimized at all times.

During both trade shows this week, hoteliers can take advantage of a free subscription to iTesso through 31 December 2012.
