Rates, availability and allocations are managed in protel MPE and pushed to all connected channels, while reservations are retrieved in real time and automatically populated in the protel MPE database.
Guests, companies, travel agents and bookers are held as a single profile in the central protel MPE database, regardless of the number of hotels stayed in. With total visibility of revenue, guest history and future bookings, the sales department can centrally plan and manage strategies within protel MPE for an effective customer relationship management program.
Real time, consolidated, multi-property reports are provided to allow for central analysis of business trends and ease of comparison of hotels’ performance.

The name “Xn” has evolved from the original “Xn”, meaning value multiplied, which lies at the heart of our ethos to this day. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the value we add to the protel suite through the numerous customisations we provide to our protel users. From popup alerts to fully featured, seamlessly integrated modules, Xn protel has invested heavily in its own development resource to deliver that last 5% to our customers. This ensures that protel and other Xn protel Systems adapt to your business processes, rather than the reverse.
protel’s unique “C-Kit” functionality allows Xn to develop comprehensive bespoke functionality, fully integrated with the main application to reflect the individual needs of each customer. This is achieved using XML “hooks” in the application and does not require core code development, thereby reducing cost and lead time.
Examples of C-Kits range from user alerts when dealing with VIP guests to sophisticated bolt-on modules managing the unique operational and financial requirements of long stay businesses.
Our intimate technical understanding of the protel application and its underlying database also allow us to produce intricate and detailed reports in accordance with customer specifications. No two hotels operate in exactly the same way and our report development services prove invaluable to senior management teams.
