IDS NEXT Launches New Version of their Hotel ERP, FortuneNEXT6i

IDS NEXT, global provider of hospitality technology launches a new version of their enterprise-wide Hotel ERP, FortuneNEXT6i.

The new application is built for virtualization and is iPad ready. It can also run on any tablet and offers clean, user friendly interfaces and a host of drill down reporting features so users can make more accurate decisions.

Says Binu Mathews, President and COO, IDS NEXT, “The application has been in development for a few months, and incorporates a host of feedback from our 3000+ customers. The architecture of the application has been reworked to make it more robust, fast and offer enhanced security features.”

One of the highpoints of FortuneNEXT6i is its built-in report writer. This tool enables users to design and generate over 300 reports. This report engine also allows for designing and customization of vouchers and receipts, and enables for extraction and presentation of data in a visually appealing manner.

FortuneNEXT6i will empower users with its built-in two way interface with a distribution platform which will enable hotels sell rooms through GDS / OTA’s and their own web booking engine, besides many other features.

Also incorporated into FortuneNEXT6i is IDS NEXT’s recently launched mobility solution. Envy Dine, our e-menu application for restaurants is visually rich, has in-built intelligence and is intuitive to use. Its unique selling point is its ability to enable hotels to upsell, cross sell and enhance revenue while optimizing use of manpower.

“FortuneNEXT6i as a Hotel ERP can effectively deal with sensitive cardholder account information as it is PA DSS Compliant. While this is not currently required by Indian regulation, IDS NEXT as an industry leader in hospitality technology felt it was important to obtain this certification. FortuneNEXT6i offer AES 128 and SHA 512 bit encryption which allows a hotel to move closer to being fully PCI Compliant” said Binu Mathews.

Since the software is used across 40 countries, FortuneNEXT6i has been designed to allow users to define calendar based on fiscal or physical year, automated initialization of bills each financial year, automated cheque number generation, pending posting and more.
