Community News: Asterisk Telephony Solution for Hotels
Xorcom, a privately-held manufacturer of business telephony interfaces and appliances based on Asterisk open source software, announces Complete Concierge, a new product comprised of Xorcom’s Asterisk-based PBX and an integrated property management system (PMS) interface.
The Complete Concierge allows businesses in the hospitality sector (hotels, motels, resorts, spas, etc.) to reap the benefits of open source telephony while utilizing the leading Property Management System (PMS) software in one bundled solution.
Integrated PBX and PMS Improves Staff Efficiency and Guest Satisfaction
Complete Concierge by Xorcom is a cost-effective, brand-new alternative to traditional hotel and motel telephony systems. It leverages existing hotel infrastructure, such as cabling and analog phone sets, and has its own built-in call accounting software package with programmable rate tables. For properties that are already using a Property Management System, the Complete Concierge integrates seamlessly with the leading PMS packages, such as Micros Fidelio Opera, Protel, Amadeus, Optima, Brilliant and Newhotel. On the other hand, for smaller properties that cannot justify the investment in a PMS package, Complete Concierge provides its own built-in PMS communications functionality as well. It also supports SIP phones.
Comprehensive Communications for Hotel Guests and Staff
Complete Concierge is a complete, all-powerful system that enables guests to access their own private communications from various sources. Plus, Complete Concierge supports flexible staff-to-guest, and staff-to-staff communication procedures to help maintain an efficient, effective service.
