Stayflexi announces two-way interface with SHR’s WindsurferCRS

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—Stayflexi has announced a robust two-way interface with SHR’s WindsurferCRS. This integration allows a hotel property’s availability and rates to be relayed continuously in real time from its Stayflexi system to streamline channel management, reduce acquisition costs, reach travelers on their favorite channels and increase hotel revenue.

SHR’s WindsurferCRS offers efficient rate and inventory management, distribution channel connections, booking engine and reporting. With Stayflexi’s two-way integration, hotels, including airport hotels and experience-based hotels, can unlock opportunities for upselling, rate management, and inventory optimization. SHR and Stayflexi will move forward with a CRM and RMS integration in the second phase of their partnership, which is expected to be completed by October this year.

“Now more than ever, hotels need technology that enables flexibility to fully maximize revenue,” said Venkat Sakamuri, CEO and co-founder of Stayflexi. “SHR’s CRS helps hotels establish a strong position at the top of the booking funnel, especially for direct bookings. Stayflexi bridges the gap at the bottom of the booking funnel for hotels by optimizing operations and guest and room management. With such tight integration between SHR and Stayflexi, hotels can be more creative and engage with every guest. The ability to integrate with other technology partners such as SHR is central to our open architecture and our ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional value to our customers.

Stayflexi’s PMS platform automates hotel operations while selling unsold rooms and amenities. Additionally, the tech startup’s latest feature, Magic Link, gives hotels contactless self-service options such as self-check-in, early check-in, additional purchases, late check-out, and more. Hoteliers using Stayflexi can also automate the end-to-end guest booking workflow, eliminating some front desk tasks and freeing up staff time to focus on service delivery.

“Working with companies like StayFlexi is key to mapping the hotel technology landscape of the future,” said Amanda Milam, Chief Integration Officer at SHR. “Not only is SHR connected to StayFlexi for their PMS product, but we’re also working with their team to discover automation workflows that can be co-authored for use in our Bridge automation platform.”

“Convenience, flexibility and instant gratification are more important than ever,” Sakamuri added. “Offering guests autonomy over their stay should not result in an operational cost for the hotel. Instead, it represents an opportunity for increased optimization and meaningful customer engagement. By partnering with industry leaders such as SHR, we can demonstrate the transformative power of automation for guests and hoteliers. »
