WINDSOR, Conn., July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:SSNC), a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, today announced that RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE:WYN), will begin a strategic development project with SS&C's TimeShareWare™ (TSW) to incorporate RCI ConnectSM platform web-services to establish an automated interface between TSW property management systems and the RCI® web servers.
The interface built by TSW will allow RCI-affiliated resorts to eliminate the need to manually enter RCI-related transaction information. RCI resorts using TimeShareWare's property management system can accept certain day-to-day RCI business transactions such as in-bound guest lists, requests and verification of deposits for RCI Weeks® members and verification and updates to ownership data. The TimeShareWare-RCI interface can reduce errors and simplifies data sharing between RCI resorts and the RCI web server, thus improving response time for their owners who wish to transact with RCI.
"One of our core efforts at RCI is to help our affiliates lower the total operating cost of their resorts," said Chris Parren, Senior Vice President, Product Development for RCI. "We developed the RCI Connect platform to eliminate redundant, time-wasting activities and give our affiliates faster access to RCI transaction data. The new partnership with TimeShareWare will help to further reduce the impact of human error and redundancy on the booking process. By simplifying and expediting information reporting, owners' accounts are immediately updated with the latest payment and booking transactions, ensuring a seamless ownership experience."
"We are pleased to announce this planned enhancement to our software, the result of extensive work through our partnership with RCI," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "While we have always been an industry leader in resort management software, this is a game-changing development. We are excited to share the interface with customers and prospective clients."
