Ariane Systems focuses on North America

Ariane Systems has launched an aggressive global growth initiative with an increased focus on the North American market. The move is spearheaded by the recent relocation of company CEO Laurent Cardot to Washington D.C., in order to oversee the North American operation. Cardot will be joined by a senior level deployment specialist, Ewina Yim. Co-founder Michel Lavandier will remain president and will oversee all EMEA operations, while Miles Gaudoin, currently managing director of Northern Europe, will step up as head of sales for EMEA.

Ariane Systems has also expanded its integration partnership base with a comprehensive list of North American-based industry-recognized technology solution providers, in order to further enhance operational efficiency for its hotel clients around the globe. Ariane's newly launched global development initiative facilitates integration of its solutions with renowned keycard and access control manufacturers, including VingCard Elsafe, Kaba Ilco/Saflok, Onity and SALTO Systems.

In an effort to streamline transactions, the company has also linked its self-service platform with multiple payment service providers that include Merchant Link, Shift4, SIX Payment Services, Ingenico Group and Verifone. Integrations with several PMS providers such as Oracle/Micros, PAR Springer Miller, Cenium, and Infor also serve the purpose of enhancing property operations and efficiency. To further ensure that hoteliers throughout North America have the ability to gain access to cutting edge hospitality solutions, Ariane Systems is also developing partnerships alongside industry-recognized brands, such as Guestdriven, iRis Software Solutions, Nor1, Runtriz and StaynTouch.
