Resort Data Processing, Inc., a provider of quality property management software for timeshare resorts, is excited to announce their leading-edge RCI Exchange Interface designed to eliminate the manual process required to confirm ownership's of exchange reservations. The interface also retrieves inbound reservations, automatically entering those reservations into the RDPWin3 PMS system.
The RCI Exchange interface brings a handful of time and money saving benefits to all timeshare properties that work with RCI. The Interface allows properties to retrieve and approve deposits of exchange weeks made by their timeshare owners quickly and easily, while RCI is able to confirm the validity of the ownership with the property.
Inbound exchange reservations are automatically retrieved and entered in RDP. When an owner makes the exchange reservation with RCI, the information is communicated to the property via the RCI interface. The reservation is automatically entered into RDP. Not only are new reservation entered, but the interface also handles changes to reservations as well as cancellations.
RCI is a global leader in vacation exchange, facilitating exchanges among timeshare owners in its global community of 3.7 million owners worldwide. RDI exchanges quality vacation experiences at more than 4,000 resorts in 100 countries through week-for-week and points-based timeshare exchange networks.
RDP partnered with RCI to help develop the first of its kind interface, and this is one of the first interface RCI has written to a PMS vendor.
Resort Data Processing’s Vice President of Sales, Scott Hixon was quoted saying “This is a great opportunity for us to increase our product offering and continue to implement new features into our software. This continues to show our commitment to the Timeshare/Fractional marketplace.”
According to Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI, it’s a win for affiliated resorts and their owners who are RCI subscribing members. “Reminding RCI members that their maintenance fees need to be current in order to deposit with RCI is more effective when we can provide them with a link while they are already actively engaged in the process,” Gurnik says. “And for our affiliated resorts, we’re not only helping them collect outstanding maintenance fees while enhancing the RCI exchange vacation experience for their owners, but also we’re providing them with a PMS interface that will increase their operational efficiencies and enhance the level of service they offer their guests.”
