PARSIPPANY, NJ WizCom International, a provider of travel information management systems, has introduced two new products, EasyAccess IQ and EasyAccess RateCreate. Both products are currently in the technical design stages now and will officially be rolled during the second half of 2001.
With EasyAccess IQ, hoteliers can load photos, video, virtual tours, textual or multimedia content onto multiple websites through a single source simultaneously.
Flo Lugli, president/WizCom, noted that though many hoteliers currently only post graphical content on their own hotel s website, she feels that may soon be changing. “Hoteliers aren t posting photos across multiple sites because of the difficulty managing it,” said Lugli. “Now with a few clicks you could send photos to numerous websites at the same time.”
She added that the new IQ product is “an extension of EasyAccess HOD.” As previously reported in HOTEL BUSINESS., WizCom s HOD product updates static, textual information about a hotel into all four GDSs simultaneously through a single point of entry.
The company s new RateCreate product works in a similar fashion. Hoteliers using the product can create single rate level profiles and automatically send the information in the correct format to create rates in each GDS.
“It cuts down on the man-power needed to manage the content,” said Lugli. (3/23/01) Diana M. Rodriguez
