Choice Hotels 1998 Annual Report - Highlights
When Choice needs a well-managed hotel with technologically savvy personnel to help test the latest version of its Profit Manager property management system software, one of the places it turns is the Comfort Inn hotel of Scottsdale, Ariz., the 1998 Comfort Inn of the Year award winner. The 124-room property, owned by Zenith Management of Duluth, Minn., is located just five miles from Choice's Western Regional Headquarters where Choice software programmers develop and refine products, including Profit Manager, the company's state-of-the-art property management system. "With its consistently high occupancy, the Comfort Inn hotel of Scottsdale is a perfect 'beta site' for testing new releases of Profit Manager software," said Christopher Yellen, Choice director of product management. "They can thoroughly test all aspects of Profit Manager in real day-to-day business situations,"
