PHOENIX, AZ — Multi-Systems, Inc. (MSI), a cloud services hospitality technology solutions provider, today announced the installation of its WinPM property management system in the first Canadian hospitality school at Olds College in Olds, Alberta, Canada. Operated through Pomeroy Lodging LP, the college now offers hospitality students training in a live hotel setting at the four-star Pomeroy Inn & Suites utilizing the MSI WinPM system.
“Our alliance with MSI over the years has proved stable yet forward-thinking,” stated Susie Goodwin, IT Manager with Pomeroy Lodging “This unique endeavor is no exception. MSI was with us in spirit as we broke ground at the Olds College Pomeroy Inn & Suites site. They were also present with the installation of MSI WinPM when the doors opened in July. Through our successful partnership we effectively introduce new students to innovative hotel technology while welcoming guests to our new property.”
In addition to MSI WinPM, the Pomeroy Inn & Suites at Olds College has deployed MSI nTouch, a leading mobile application for electronic hand-held devices such as iTouch, iPhone, and iPad. This integrated “go anywhere” hospitality technology allows for room status updates on-the-fly. MSI partner Digital Alchemy has also deployed its customer relationship management (CRM) solution at the new Pomeroy Inn & Suites. Integrated with MSI WinPM, this global e-marketing tool encourages building and maintaining profitable relationships with current and prospective hotel guests.
Rick Munson, MSI President and CEO said, “We are elated to be invited to serve Olds College students alongside Susie Goodwin and Pomeroy Lodging. We recognize the importance of educating students using the latest technology in the real world. Pomeroy Inn & Suites at Olds College is the second school of hospitality where MSI has been invited to share its innovations. The first mission was accomplished in the USA at the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management at Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, Arizona. At NAU, students are instructed on our hotel cloud technology, MSI CloudPM.”
