Utilizing Infor ION, SoftBrands HMS combines functionality to manage guests, rooms, rates, reservations, distribution, and more.
- SoftBrands, an Infor affiliate, launched SoftBrands HMS, a comprehensive business application that allows for configurable workflows to present the right information to the right user at the right time.

- Infor ION enables hospitality to opt to use existing or additional third-party systems with complete integration into the HMS backbone.
What the Galt House Hotel Says
“As one of the largest urban hotels in the nation, and with more guest suites than any other urban hotel outside of Las Vegas, the Galt House Hotel’s roughly 1,300 guest rooms and over 124,000 square feet of meeting space makes it the meeting and convention destination of choice in our region,” said Ron Strecker, CFO of The Al J. Schneider Co., parent company of the Galt House Hotel. “Having previewed SoftBrands HMS, we can see how the combination of Infor technology and SoftBrands expertise will deliver the next generation system for seamlessly running hospitality operations and, unbeknownst to guests, make their experience and stay even more enjoyable.”
What Aberdeen Research Says
“Aberdeen research shows a clear need for hospitality software to deliver improved guest satisfaction through a single database with a simple to use browser-based interface,” said Chris Cunnane, Aberdeen Research. “SoftBrands HMS is built to fill this gap for the industry and enable companies to collect and use customer data that will help them up-sell additional services and increase profitability.”
What We Say
“The very name ‘hospitality’ highlights the importance of guest service at every level of our industry, from the largest global chains to the independent hotel and resort,” said David Purcell, director of hospitality solution marketing, SoftBrands, an Infor affiliate. “Outdated property management systems that do not provide a 360 degree view of guest interaction have handicapped the industry, but SoftBrands HMS will enable the industry to fulfill its potential for guest services.”
