Frontdesk Anywhere is set to offer RingCentral (News - Alert) telephone services as a part of its line of services available to hotel and motel operators.
RingCentral offers cloud-based business phone systems with toll, toll-free and fax services that can be accessed from anywhere via their softphone desktop software and iPhone (News - Alert) application and via their desktop handsets.
Frontdesk Anywhere provides innovative hotel management software for independent properties. It is focused on converging processes traditionally performed by separate systems into a single all-in-one productivity application.
Both partners intend to bring innovative and cost reducing telephony solutions to the hotel industry. As RingCentral and Frontdesk Anywhere are Web-based systems it simplifies the tight integration between the two services.
"I believe hotel operators and organizations will receive tremendous value from RingCentral's service" said Frontdesk Anywhere co-founder Thomas Lyle. "This is a solution that can be deployed to all rooms throughout the property in a cost effective manner. It offers the features, control and reporting capabilities of large expensive telephony systems but at a modest monthly fee."
"We are constantly looking at ways how the hotel industry can benefit from these types of partnerships" Joe Kiernan, the technical co-founder at Frontdesk Anywhere stated. "The SalesForce.com integration was pretty impressive and we instantly saw how a similar integration with our hotel property management system would be phenomenal for the industry."
