Comtrol’s Hospitality Products Division provides the industry’s ONLY universal protocol translation system for connecting Property Management Systems with hundreds of Guest Service Systems (GSSs), including PBX, call accounting, voice mail, keyless entry, in-room movies, internet access, mini-bar, point-of-sale, and energy management. Comtrol’s Lodging Link™, the premier universal interface for the hospitality industry, was developed to help hotel technology providers meet their integration challenges. Through a powerful interface "engine," Lodging Link provides seamless, bi-directional communication between multiple hospitality systems and the property management system.
The GSS Developer Kit enables GSS manufacturers to develop directly to Comtrol’s Lodging Link PMS interface hub. This gives GSS manufacturers the capability to eliminate the cost and effort of designing, developing, testing, and deploying their own communications protocols. It also ensures that the manufacturers’ GSS devices are immediately compliant with all Lodging Link-based Property Management Systems in the marketplace.
