Resort Chooses SS&C to Integrate with Marketspan to Expand Exposure to Availability
SS&C Technologies (NASDAQ: SSNC), a global provider of investment and financial software-enabled services and software, today announced Vacation Internationale (VI), a timeshare leader in leisure travel with resorts in Canada, the United States, and Mexico, has selected SS&C’s TimeShareWare (TSW) Resorts-4-Rent (R4R) product to facilitate inventory exposure and reservation bookings through GDS systems via Marketspan by LeisureLink.
TimeShareWare’s Resorts-4-Rent allows VI the flexibility of exposing availability to the GDS channel as desired through web services tied directly to their TimeShareWare inventory management engine. Technology solutions like Marketspan are then able to update inventory availability and rates, while also creating reservations directly into VI’s TimeShareWare system – all in real-time.
“Managing the same inventory in two systems is difficult,” explains Dorothy Heiret, Chief Information Officer for Vacation Internationale. “[TimeShareWare’s] R4R has eliminated the mistakes inherent to a manual system as well as the hours of data entry, and allowed us to accept same-day bookings.”
”The ability to create and manage reservations directly into TimeShareWare’s system via our Marketspan platform eliminates the need for property management staff to manually update GDS extranets,” said Erik Hovanec, CEO and President of LeisureLink, Inc. “The Marketspan platform drives significant revenue for Vacation Internationale by getting more rooms and inventory in front of more travelers through one single connection to GDS and OTA channels. “
