Neuss, Germany – March 23, 2010 – MICROS Systems, Inc., a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce the launch of a powerful XMLbased interface between RateTiger’s channel management system ‐ RTConnect, one of Europe’s leading online channel management tools and MICROS’s OPERA Property Management and Reservation Systems. This interface also includes RTConnect’s Rate shopping functionality.
This unique and innovative solution will enable the hotel to manage its rates, inventory and availability from MICROS OPERA applications into RateTiger’s channel management and receive reservations directly into its hotel system, utilizing MICROS’s proprietary interfacing technology. Information for over 500 channels will be easily maintained directly from OPERA Property Management System, OPERA Reservation Systems and myfidelio.net. The OPERA and myfidelio.net Interfaces will also interact with RateTiger’s rate shopping tools to show competitive rate information within OPERA.
