my booking portal is a unique cloud solution that enables hoteliers, apartment managers, & holiday letting agents to integrate booking management, access control, home automation and Wifi systems to provide the ultimate connected guest experience with virtually zero administration.
Designed as a collaborative venture between IT Foundations and Eden Group (a security and access control specialist based in Edinburgh and servicing customers throughout Scotland), the solution was initially developed to work with the Paxton Net2 Access Control System and the Elina Property Management System (PMS).
Although Paxton Net2 was not specifically designed for the hospitality industry, Eden Group developed innovative ways to deploy Net 2 to allow the use of Pin entry codes in apartment buildings with no concierge service so that guests did not need to pick up keys from a management office in order to access their room, apartment, lodge or cottage.
Turning to IT Foundations to help develop the solution we worked with Eden Group to understand the requirements and potential solutions. This led to a pilot project to validate the technology and determine options for the final system.
With the technical hurdles cleared, we identified that the final solution should be capable of working with systems other than Paxton Net2. Eden Group also identified potential beta customers and from his group it was decided that the first PMS integration would be Elina.
my booking portal is Developed using Microsoft .NET technologies and hosted in Microsoft Azure. This allows us to provide a scaleable platform with a 99.95% uptime guarantee. Additionally it support data encryption at rest and in transit to ensure that the minimal amount of booking data actually required to facilitate the solution remains secure at all times.
