This article describes the RDPWin technology used by your employees for internal access. RDPWin uses the Microsoft Windows .Net technology. Each workstation can install RDPWin (“Fat Client”) or use Terminal Services/Citrix. (“Thin Client”). Workstations can be physically at the property or remote. After reading this article, existing RDP customers should also read Adding RDPWin to an Existing RDP System. Also see: Hardware Required.
RDP technology topics covered in this document include:
The RDPWin product uses Microsoft’s “.Net” technology for Windows. Microsoft has spent billions of dollars developing “.Net” as their platform of the future. Learn more about “.Net” at http://www.microsoft.com/net/.
High Performance Access with Many Workstations
RDP systems have always offered tremendous performance. In a test database with over 500,000 guest history records, any one can be found and displayed in less than one second. Scalability testing has shown over 100 workstations accessing the RDPWin database with excellent response times (less than 2 seconds).
An Easy-to-Use, Windows-Based, Graphical User Interface (GUI)
RDPWin is Windows-based software, using to full advantage Microsoft’s Graphical User Interface (GUI). Most people today are very comfortable with the familiar point and click Windows interface, graphical displays, fonts, pictures, graphs, etc.
RDPWin uses intuitive linked screens for booking reservations, checking guests in, reports, night audit, etc. It is based on 30+ years of property management software experience. A sample inventory display screen is below.
RDPWin and the Internet Reservation Module (IRM) can automatically send emails to all guests, owners, travel agents and groups who make reservations. These confirmations can be completely customized for the desired information and appearance. Any system report can be sent via e-mail to a person or group in your address book. For example, email the daily managers report to a group of ten managers with just one process.
Email is one of the most powerful and least expensive marketing tools available and has been fully incorporated into the core RDP system at no additional charge. Email features included in the system:
Fully integrated HTML email capabilities, including confirmations, folios, guest surveys, and more.
RDP software is designed for Microsoft operating systems, using single workstations, peer-to-peer networking (2-10 workstations), or Windows 2012 Servers (over 10 workstations). RDP does not sell hardware, but we will be glad to work with the vendor of your choice to ensure the correct configuration is purchased. Please see Hardware Requirements for specifications. The diagram below shows how the RDP data server and optional Internet Reservation Module server are connected to the Internet and the Global Distribution System.
Optional Thin Client Deployment Of RDPWin
RDPWin can be installed on each workstation at the property or can be installed using a thin client environment using either Citrix or Terminal Services. A combination can also be used, where some workstations have RDPWin installed directly and others use Thin Client. See Hardware Requirements – Citrix or Terminal Services.
Backed By 30+ Years of Property Management Software Experience
In 2011, Resort Data Processing celebrated its 30th anniversary of developing, installing, and supporting property management software. Over the past 30 years, we have installed over 2000 property management systems in 30 countries on six continents. The design of RDPWin is based on the feature set developed over those 30 years and used by over 2000 customers. RDPWin combines the power of Microsoft’s “.Net” technology and ease-of-use of Windows, while preserving and enhancing thousands of RDP features added over the years.
One of RDPWin’s most powerful features is the ability to run Crystal Reports easily from various menus. RDPWin allows remote owners, managers, or offsite employees (sales agents) to run reports from their remote office or travel destination. For example, a Group Sales Director at an industry tradeshow no longer has to contact the property to check availability. Instead, he or she simply connects to the Internet, logs on to RDPWin, and prints an up-to-date availability listing for a variety of dates. RDPWin’s portable reporting capabilities eliminates phone calls and faxed and/or E-Mailed reports. Any RDPWin report that can be viewed at the property can be viewed from a remote site via the Internet!
RDP also provides RDPSQL, which allows ad-hoc access to the RDP Database using powerful SQL queries. RDPSQL is designed for those customers familiar with the power of SQL. The example below selects all future reservations for analysis. The results can be sorted filtered and sorted many different ways and also exported to Microsoft Excel.
