Rocco Forte Hotels is moving to Xn protel Systems’ full-service, cloud-hosted, xnPOS point-of-sale system after many years of using Xn’s dotPOS system. The first implementation of xnPOS was at Hotel Amigo, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Brussels. Since then, it has been implemented in further Rocco Forte properties, with the remaining hotels planned for 2018.

This further formalizes and extends the partnership between Rocco Forte Hotels and Xn protel to include next-generation POS solutions that deliver better performance, more stability, functionality and flexibility for Rocco Forte Hotels’ growing business operations.

Rocco Forte Hotels was established in 1996 by Sir Rocco Forte and sister, Olga Polizzi. With award-winning landmark hotels across Europe such as the Hotel de Russie, Rome, Brown’s Hotel, London, Charles Hotel, Munich and one in Saudi Arabia, Assila Hotel, Jeddah, each of the 11 hotels exude the Forte philosophy: open, intuitive service; elegant design that speaks to its location; and exceptional offerings in food, drink, spas and experiences.
