Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) June 15, 2015

GuestDriven, a Guest Engagement Platform provider at the forefront of innovation in travel technology, has been included in the 2015 Cool Vendors in Travel and Hospitality Report published May 28 by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company.

Gartner selected only three travel and hospitality firms for the 2015 publication of this report, which is published annually by Gartner. Included this year along with GuestDriven were Mobile Travel Technologies and RezNext. Gartner reports are objective and subject to strict, proprietary methodologies. As such we believe the significance of being included in a Gartner Research Report is highly validating for a technology firm.

GuestDriven announces their inclusion in the report as the biggest trade show in the travel technology industry approaches – HITEC by HFTP, which will take place this week in Austin TX June 15-18. During HITEC attendees from hotels globally will be able to meet the GuestDriven team and see live demonstrations of the Guest Engagement Platform.

To accompany its in-stay solution Engage, GuestDriven launched its Express pre-stay solution in late 2014. Guests can check-in online and choose exclusive offers and upgrades prior to arrival, which is a strong window for conversions. CEO Anthony Zebrowski-Rubin says Express has been received exceptionally well by the market.

“The full GuestDriven platform allows hotels to really know their guests in advance in order to offer a more personalized service. Mobile plays a huge part in crafting a frictionless experience so the in-stay solution puts real-time guest engagement at the hotel’s fingertips. Guests can order room service, request a valet, purchase a late check-out, communicate 1:1 with the front desk and more.”

FairCom Makes Its Debut In Gartners Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems


COLUMBIA, MO. (PRWEB UK) 11 November 2014

FairCom, a worldwide leader in high-performance, engineering-level database technology, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems (DBMS). (1). The report evaluated 25 vendors for inclusion in the Quadrant.

The annual Gartner Magic Quadrant report evaluates vendors within the market, offering in-depth analyses of strengths and cautions for each. According to Gartner, “The operational DBMS market continues to grow, with innovative products and features being delivered by both new and traditional vendors.” (2).

Although this is its first appearance in the Quadrant, FairCom is one of these traditional vendors. “As the most mature NoSQL DBMSs on the market, we have a long history of stability and innovation,” said Randal Hoff, VP of Engineering Services, FairCom. “We consider our positioning in the Operational DMBS Quadrant a reflection of our ability to provide the highest customer support, professional services and performance to our customers. We look forward to continuing our growth as a company and further enhancing our market position in the future.”

Franco Violi, CTO at Lapam Federimpresa, was not surprised by the news. “I see FairCom’s inclusion in the Quadrant to be a reflection of what we at my company have known for years. For more than 10 years we have relied on FairCom because of its strong technology and performance, as well as the exceptional customer service to match.”

The Magic Quadrant report also predicts that, “By 2017 all leading operational DBMSs will offer multiple data models, relational and NoSQL, in a single platform.” (3). Continuously delivering power to developers, already today FairCom’s customers do not have to make the choice between NoSQL and SQL. c-treeACE is a fully ACID, key-value store with both NoSQL interfaces and SQL, supporting transactions with an embedded or stand-alone engine. Cross-platform support (Unix/Linux/OS X/Windows), scalability and strong HA stand out among its capabilities.

According to Chris Hellewell VP of Product Development at Spillman Technologies, “The performance and reliability of the FairCom database were key factors in the decision to use it in our software solutions. Many applications in the public safety market, including computer-aided dispatch for emergency communications centers, require quick performance for real-time operations. With FairCom, we are able to meet these expectations while passing along the benefits of a zero-maintenance database to our customers.”
