HITEC 2015 - Above Property

Above Property will be attending HITEC in Austin, TX this year.  The convention runs from June 16-18 at the Austin Convention Center.  Above Property will be showing/demonstrating their recently released Inline Revenue Management™ module as well as their Distributed Reservations System™.

Above Property® is an advanced global travel solution delivered via an always-on multi-cloud, module based platform.

Our vision is to solve the technology and business constraints of today’s legacy based CRSs (Central Reservation Systems) and RMSs (Revenue Management Systems) by leveraging our groundbreaking, multi-tenant, rules-based, big-data driven, globally Distributed Reservation System (DRS).

What to expect from HITEC 2015?

Obviously, HITEC represents the largest technology focused event for the hospitality industry in North America.  Mobile has been the headlining topic with annual attendees over the past several years. Last year this time, the big news was Priceline acquiring OpenTable only to be trumped by Oracle buying Micros.  My guess is that the guest’s “on property” experience will be at the forefront of this year’s showcases.

Core technology needs to move forward

As new technologies that enhance the guest experience, the “shiny new object”, the big issue is the core technologies that provide the foundation to industry must be modernized. Above Property is working hard to address the legacy-based systems (RMS & CRS) that are in desperate need of modernization.  The traveler is now global, mobile, and informed. The systems that support these travelers need to keep pace.  The majority of the core reservation systems in place today are pre-internet and the pain on the supply-side of the business is clearly being felt.  My aspiration for this year’s HITEC is that the modernization conversation begins to move forward so that the guest experience and technology value add to the Hotelier can be truly maximized.
