SmartREPORT magazine: managing the changes and the variety of professions in tourism operations
Sequoiasoft has begun a new large-scale project which, in the long term, will become the tourism ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning software) entirely dedicated to tourism operations, hospitality and wellness. Hervé Colly, one of the directors at Sequoiasoft, explains his ambitions for the new group.
Sequoiasoft is the creator of Resalys, one of the leading marketing and management systems for tourism and hospitality operations; a genuine CRPMS (Central Reservation + Property Management System). The tool is extremely adaptable in its settings, and this has helped us attract a lot of central reservation services and actors in social and associative tourism. In parallel, we've developed management solutions for hotels and hotel groups, as well as Spa and wellness centres. Our solutions can adapt to their respective conditions.
Why was Sequoiasoft created?
Hervé Colly: To become the go-to technology partner of hospitality and wellness professionals. Five years after Softbooking was created, we naturally decided to pool our resources and services, with the aim of consolidating a project that means a great deal to us: continuing to develop our solutions with a view to one day offering a comprehensive tourism ERP that includes both marketing and management functions for tourist operations. This tool will be offered as a service (SaaS), either in its complete form or by specific module, according to the client's needs.
You will be representing Sequoiasoft at the Equip’Hôtel show. What will you be presenting?
This will be a chance to spread the word about our project, because the trade show gives us direct contact with players in the hotel industry and, as of this year, the outdoor accommodation industry as well. This is another area in which we're very involved. We'll be presenting our entire range and all our developments. It will also be a chance to explain everything we're capable of offering to our clients, such as use of our data centre, which can host all our solutions. It's because of all these services that over a thousand tourism professionals put their faith in us.
