StayNTouch is new on the scene, but its timely blend of mobile and cloud is taking the hospitality PMS (property management system) market by storm.
Jos Schaap didn’t have to leave MICROS. He’d been working his way up the management chain there for more than 17 years. By 2012 he was SVP in charge of global product development and strategy for the Lodging and E-Commerce divisions of the hospitality software industry’s 800-pound gorilla. It was on Schaap’s watch that MICROS’ hospitality products attained that status, becoming the undisputed global market leader with more than 25,000 properties in its portfolio and revenue of more than $1.1 billion.
