Calgary, AB – September 10, 2013 – WebRezPro Cloud Property Management System by World Web Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce a direct-connect integration with Stash Hotel Rewards, the largest points-based rewards program for independent hotels in the U.S. Through this proprietary integration, WebRezPro has automated the process of managing Stash member point balances, streamlining the flow of guest check-out information from independent hotels directly to Stash Hotel Rewards.
WebRezPro PMS worked in conjunction with Stash Hotel Rewards and Charlestowne Hotels to develop the automated solution, enabling WebRezPro to send Charlestowne’s guest stay data to Stash Rewards immediately upon check-out. Previously, hotel staff were required to create and export nightly reports which contain information needed to award guests with Stash points. The new interface saves independent hoteliers time and expense by eliminating traditional reporting processes, allowing them to focus on other areas of the business.
“Our integration with WebRezPro results in happier Stash members,” said Booth Hodde, COO of Stash Hotel Rewards. “Receiving stay data automatically from WebRezPro allows us to deposit Stash points into member accounts almost instantly upon check-out. With the prior process, members waited a day to see points in their accounts, sometimes longer.”
Future integration enhancements include moving toward a two-way connection, which will allow WebRezPro to query the Stash Hotel Rewards database to identify reward members prior to or upon guest check-in. With this information in hand, hotel staff will be able to anticipate Stash members when they walk in the door.
“We are proud to offer an interface that enables our independent hotel clients to compete head-to-head with chain hotels while maintaining what sets them apart in the first place: their independence,” commented Frank Verhagen, President at World Web Technologies, Inc. “With this interface, hoteliers save valuable time and will soon be able to welcome Stash members in their own unique way.”
