The Owners Association of Holiday Inn, (IAHI) Works with SOLTECH to Get the Word out on Swine Influenza
SOLTECH, an Atlanta-based developer of custom software solutions, announced the re-launch of several aspects of the web facing membership programs of IAHI, the owners association of Holiday Inn. The release of this new platform, enables IAHI members to keep up with news and developments related to the hotel business, as well as programs and initiatives of the IAHI.
The system leverages the wildly popular open source DotnetNuke content management system, for which SOLTECH built a comprehensive custom, members management subsystem.
According to Tim Smith, CEO and founder of SOLTECH, “The new system has proven invaluable to our client in maintaining high levels of communication with their members, but has been particularly useful and timely in disseminating information for hotel owners relating to the management and prevention of the recent outbreak of Swine Influenza.”
According to Nathan Polny, IAHI’s Communications and Marketing Manager, “IAHI, the Owners’ Association worked closely with SOLTECH on the re-launch of several different aspects of our web-based membership programs, most notably www.iahi.org. Throughout the process, I found the SOLTECH team to be very available, willing, and knowledgeable about what our needs were. We were offered several different options for how to put the proposal together, and once one was chosen, they aligned us with a terrific creative team. Designs were well thought-out and little revision work was needed. As content was edited and we prepared the site to go live, I was kept up-to-date and found the entire team to be more than available. There were many moving parts to this launch process and even as a few small issues and design challenges have arisen, the SOLTECH team have been quick to respond”
“The dynamic website brings tremendous value to our membership with best practices, tips, news and guidance in an ever changing landscape that includes everything from economic turmoil through the threat of pandemic. The importance of efficient communication tools cannot be underestimated” , added Polny.
