Rich is an accomplished business innovator, business developer, and senior-level sales and marketing executive, whose vision will help us develop a goal driven, dynamic team, focused on exceeding expectations”.

iPalapa’s centralized inventory management application has proven to provide increased revenue, improved guest experience, operation control and efficiency, robust data collection and analytics, improved cash flow, plus yield pricing. With integration into hotel & financial systems, hotels can now offer all guest services, activities, and products, from the time of room booking through the guest stay. iPalapa’s Hosted Reservation Solution platform is globally approved and supporting major hotel brands, such as Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt. Current iPalapa resort installations can be found in Hawaii, Arizona, Florida, Texas, and throughout CALA.

Oliver Reschreiter, Director of Operations for JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, has used this software extensively at their property and states “The iPalapa reservation system has been an excellent addition to the pool operation at the JW Marriott Phoenix. The consistency that the site provides allows us to ensure that our guests have an exceptional time and that our associates are always on the same page.”
