In the hospitality industry a property management system also known as a PMS is a business critical software application used to cover some basic objectives such as coordinating the operational functions of front office, sales and planning etc.
The problem with stand-alone PMS systems is that the older, non standard versions are usually not connected with the Internet. Occasionally PMS providers may charge extra money for online connectivity. In addition, a lot of smaller PMS are not compatible with other hotel software products such as a channel manager (explained in next section), F&B management systems Guest CRM etc.
Being a SaaS (software as a service) (link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_service) product, hotellauncher is by definition always online and connected to the Internet. This means the information hotellauncher.com can show to the hotels is always real time.
