IRM Updated to Use .Net Technology

For the last 12 years, one of the most important products at RDP has been the Internet Reservation Module (IRM).  The IRM allows millions of potential guests, groups, travel agents, and wholesalers to check availability and make commission-free reservations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The IRM is designed to work in conjunction with your existing marketing website. Reservations are stored immediately in the same database as normal “phone-in” reservations, with one database for true “last room” availability. We are in the process of enhancing the IRM with a new version, called “IRM.Net”.

Some of our customers have really outdone themselves with their marketing site in conjunction with IRM.Net.  To see some customer websites that really look great and to see what IRM.Net can do for your, see IRM.Net Customer List.

See “IRM.Net Upgrades for Current RDP Customers“.

  • RDP will continue to support legacy IRM for many years.
  • All new enhancements to be in IRM.Net will only be added to IRM.net.
  • IRM.Net software is provided to all customers with IRM at no extra charge.
