For nearly 25 years, protel has successfully developed hotel management solutions that are in use in more than 14,000 hotels and over 90 countries. protel is the established market leader for PMS in Switzerland and Austria. To continue its strategic expansion, the company opened a branch in North America in mid-2017, where the protel team recently positioned itself in Atlanta. This has a clearly defined goal: acquiring hotel chains and groups along with individual hotels looking for a modern IT eco-system to centralize their heterogeneous system landscape.

Customers around the world appreciate the specialized protel know-how and cutting-edge developments which revolve exclusively around hospitality. "We specialize in the hotel business, we speak the same language and have the same concept of service," says Manfred Osthues, co-owner of protel. "We handle the technological challenges, the digitization, the hotel-specific requirements and support the industry with cloud-based and on-premise solutions that enable centralized hotel management and, above all, are secure!"


The future of successful hospitality IT is a "best-of-breed solution"! These solutions pose great challenges to IT development since the central and usually heterogeneous management solutions are often compiled from different solutions, of different ages, by various providers.

Previously there have been attempts to combine solutions, realize 2-way communication and establish a clean and central database. The requirements are getting more specific, open interfaces are desired and, understandably in today’s market, some hotel chains also work with various PMS solutions that should ideally be connected. The technological solution is relatively simple: Creating an IT eco-system to be used for management tasks by utilizing a data warehouse and central hotel administration. The protel Hospitality Platform comprises:

protel SERVICES MARKETPLACE – the technological breakthrough which enables on one side, the vendors to both design and market their existing and future hotel technology directly to the hotel audience that demands it. On the other, it delivers an existing buyer’s market plus a set of developer tools to ensure smooth implementation and adherence to the HTNG-defined protocol, in turn guaranteeing fast and secure deployment of the product. Vendor-neutral and fully collaborative, both parts are powered by the real-time data messaging provided by the protel.I/O infrastructure, to deliver:

protel GENIUS – the protel data warehouse, delivered via the SERVICES MARKETPLACE, where all incoming information is combined. Apache Cassandra is used for a professional and secure data administration. Identified with a time stamp, the information is stored individually – nothing is lost, even if a hotel switches from one chain to another chain, for example. The existing data are processed online in the linked PMS systems and other connected technologies such as protel’s own WHISPER screens, or in printed form for various dashboards and reports.

protel CENTRAL – the central hotel management platform for hotel groups. protel CENTRAL ensures communication with all systems connected to protel.I/O, including those of various providers. The user interface enables the following central tasks:

protel supports the hospitality industry worldwide. Customers appreciate the specialized know-how and cutting-edge developments which revolve exclusively around hospitality. The provider-neutral platform protel.I/O enables entirely new management strategies and supports the customer journey from start to finish. This innovative solution was a finalist for the HTNG TechOvation Award in 2018.
