SmartHOTEL, a gold partner level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of the SmartCONNECT for PMS with Oracle Hospitality OPERA 5.5. The SmartCONNECT for PMS enables a two-way integration between Oracle Hospitality Opera room reservation system and third-party property management systems, so hotel chains with non-Oracle systems can benefit from the Oracle Hospitality Opera room reservation system.
To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. Changing a PMS infrastructure is a time and money consuming procedure, which can cause missed opportunities for hotel chains who are looking to expand their hotel portfolio. With the SmartCONNECT for PMS, hotel chains that use the Opera room reservation system can now easily onboard any (franchise) hotel that uses a different PMS.
“The SmartCONNECT for PMS opens up the possibility to grow and expand by breaking the barriers of hotels using different PMS infrastructures,” said Pitrik van der Lubbe, founder of SmartHOTEL, in a statement. “The strong technology behind Oracle Hospitality combined with our knowledge of Online Distribution is what makes our partnership strong and effective, and enables us to make seamless integrations for Oracle Hospitality software."
