Windmill Point Resort To Install SMS/Host Hospitality Management System.
--Resort selects PAR Springer-Miller Systems to manage lodging and marina
--First PAR customer to contract for implementation of PAR's complete hospitality solution -Software, Hardware and Life Cycle services
PAR Springer-Miller Systems Inc. (PSMS) -- the leading provider of guest-centric hospitality management solutions-- is pleased to announce that Windmill Point Resort and Yacht Harbor is the first property to select PAR's integrated property management solution as the system of choice for its property in White Stone, Virginia. This system includes the industry leading SMS|Host Hospitality Management System applications, PAR hardware platforms to be utilized onsite at the customer's retail outlets and PAR's lifecycle support services.
By selecting PAR's integrated solution customers now have a one stop/call service capability for their complete solution needs versus the alternative of buying software from one provider, hardware from another and service from even a third. PSMS will resolve all issues with one simple call. In addition, the PAR hardware, with its outstanding reliability over the common PC, will provide a solution which has a life cycle cost significantly less than the common two box PC solution found in many retail outlets in hospitality. This win is proof of PAR's strategy in acquiring Springer-Miller Systems in 2004. That strategy was to sell the Company's traditional hospitality products (point-of-sale (POS) hardware and services) into PSMS' core markets of Hotels/Resorts and Spas.
Windmill Point Resort will also install several of PAR Springer-Miller's optional modules at their location including SMS|Retail Point-of-Sale, Owner Fulfillment, Membership Management, Multi-Property Management, Activities Management, Spa/Resort Scheduling, SMS|Tickets, and SMS|World for internet booking.
Located on the Chesapeake Bay, the Resort consists of 52 waterfront rooms, a 160-slip marina, 2 restaurants, a resort club, lodge, amphitheater and condominium development on a 55-acre island. Each room in the beach front inn opens onto its own balcony or patio with comfortable island style outdoor furniture for enjoying the island's views. The property is slated to open in April 2005.
Sacha Bernstein, Director of Information Technology at Windmill Point Resort, said, "We needed an integrated solution (software, hardware and services) that would seamlessly integrate the many aspects of our property and enable us to consistently exceed our guests' expectations. PAR's SMS|Host Hospitality Management System and hardware platforms provide us that capability. The integrated solution is intuitive, flexible, and easy to navigate. PAR Springer-Miller is internationally known for its excellence in hospitality management systems, and for its outstanding track record of systems service."
"We are extremely proud of our recent successes. Windmill Point's selection of SMS|Host, along with PAR's hardware platforms and services, is proof of our continuing delivery of best of breed applications and services to our clients and our ability to leverage our reputation to gain new business" stated John Springer-Miller, CEO of PAR Springer-Miller. "Our SMS|Host application is a powerful tool for our clients because it can seamlessly integrate the entire roster of property management requirements for high end resorts like Windmill Point. The selection of PAR's hardware platform and lifecycle support services is verifiable proof of the value add the new PAR Springer-Miller integrated solution regularly can provide its customers."
