The RDP system has the ability to post charges to guest folios and group masters. This feature can be used as a limited Point-of-Sale system for simple locations, such as selling a few items at the front desk. Many RDP customers require much more sophisticated POS features for their Restaurants, pool, Spa, Golf Course, and many other locations.
To satisfy these requirement RDP has interfaced to a wide variety of third party Point-of-sale systems as indicated on the list below. Please note that we are frequently adding new POS interfaces. The RDP sales team can help you identify the best POS system for your applications.

Posts charges from various in-room movie systems to the guest folio. With the Enhanced Movie Interface installed, guests can view folio transactions on their television and check-out of the RDP system.
Guests with a valid credit card on file can process their own check-outs through the movie system without visiting the front desk. Once the guest is checked out through the Enhanced Movie Interface, RDP’s availability is immediately updated and the room is marked dirty and vacant for the housekeeping department.
RDP interfaces with your bank’s Lockbox service, which saves you time when it comes to sending statements and processing receivables from your owners.
RDP exports the end of month owner statement information to your bank via a file mechanism. The bank processes and sends the owner statements to each owner. The MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) code is included on each statement. The bank collects and processes the payments directly into your bank account. It sends back the information in file that is imported using the Lockbox interface. The owner account is updated in RDP, showing the account has been paid.
Today, guests can make room reservations via the GDS by either calling a travel agent or using a GDS Travel Website. GDS Travel Websites are designed to be used directly by guests. These websites are interfaced directly to the GDS allowing rates and availability to be displayed to the guest in the same manner as travel agents. RDP has a wide variety of interfaces to GDS and other reservation systems.
Many companies using RDP have more than one property. RDP offers a Central Reservation option to allow reservations to be made from one location to all properties.
The RDP System includes a fully integrated general ledger that captures all financial activity from all RDP modules. The RDP general ledger acts as a Sub Ledger to your primary back office accounting system, just as your payroll system is a sub-ledger. During system installation, general ledger account numbers can be assigned for the chart of accounts.
The system automatically makes all entries to these customized account numbers using standard double-entry accounting principles. At the end of each day, a balanced general ledger entry can be automatically transferred from the RDP sub ledger to your primary back office General Ledger System. Automatic transfer is supported with the following back-office systems.
The RDP system interfaces with Intelity’s ICE (Interactive Customer Experience) program. ICE allows guest to enter requests such as room service, schedule spa treatments, purchase show tickets, request wake up calls, etc. from a web-enabled device.
