CHEVAL JOINS THE CLOUD

Luxury apartment operator Cheval Collection has partnered with Australian property management company RMS Cloud, a provider of cloud computing services to the hospitality industry.

The UK-based Cheval Collection, which operates eight Cheval Residences in central London as well as numerous properties around the world, made the switch with an eye on the future. The company recently won a management contract for a development in Dubai featuring 280 serviced and residential apartments under its new Cheval Maison brand.

“We’ve made a long-term decision in the best interests of Cheval,” said CEO George Westwell. “Moving our technology platform to the cloud will give us the scope and flexibility we need as the business continues to evolve.”

RMS Cloud produces and supports online booking, channel management, and front office systems to the world’s hospitality industry.

The company has been developing property and reservations management systems for over 30 years for the holiday park, caravan and RV park, hotel, motel, and apartment sectors, as well as providing services for the mining, defence, facility, and shopping centre industries.

“We looked at numerous property management systems and chose RMS Cloud because we felt it was an excellent fit for our business – it’s agile, intuitive, and a good all-round choice,” said Westwell.

Jeff Swanson, RMS Cloud’s managing director for Europe, added: “We are delighted to be working with the Cheval Collection – they operate some of the best properties in Europe and have an exceptional reputation.”
