HotelREZ Hotels and Resorts launches new PMS interface REZSwitch

HotelREZ Hotels and Resorts launched a new PMS interface, REZSwitch. The new PMS interface will provide a cost-efficient and flexible way for a property management system to connect to HotelREZ's central reservations system, CentralREZ. 

Over the years, the PMS technology landscape has experienced considerable change, and today independent hotels are being offered a wide range of solutions, including a diversity of smaller regional PMS providers. Until now many independent hoteliers have struggled to work effectively with many of these new PMS providers, as an interface to the CRS simply wasn't available, or it was too costly to build. Without an interface, hoteliers are forced to manage two systems manually, which opens up risks of overbooking and price discrepancies.

HotelREZ was already capable of supporting more than 60 mainstream PMS providers with seamless two-way connectivity to its CRS however with the new switch in place this number is bound to grow significantly.
