Grupo Posadas, the largest Latin American hotel chain operator, today announces the successful phase 1 roll-out of their newly Integrated Content Management Portal (ICMP) architecture.
“We were facing many challenges with our previous J2EE & Documentum based solution. We carried out a detailed evaluation process before selecting CIGNEX as our partner. CIGNEX rolled out an integrated solution using Alfresco and Liferay to help meet our three-pronged objectives of: (a) improving revenue per available room, (b) providing a fantastic web experience to our patrons, and © reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our web presence. The CIGNEX solution helps us deploy a collaborative, centralized ICMP across all 8 brands, while reducing TCO by over 50% in comparison to our previous solution”, shared Mr. Leopoldo Toro, Strategy & Innovation Director, Posadas.
“The new ICMP solution is aimed at helping Posadas maintain their leadership position across their brands. Alfresco & Liferay met their critical needs of transferring control to the business users to manage content, disseminating real time information to distribution channels, multi-lingual support, advanced workflow, flexible and scalable architecture”, commented Amit Babaria, President – Americas (Open Source), CIGNEX.
“CIGNEX, a Platinum Partner to Alfresco and Liferay, with over 100 implementations globally on both, was the ideal partner to deploy the integrated solution for Grupo Posadas”, said Brian Kim, COO, Liferay Inc.
“We are very excited with the success of the ICMP solution rolled out by CIGNEX at Grupo Posadas. This provides Enterprises a fantastic testimony on the robustness and flexibility provided by Alfresco & Liferay”, highlighted Todd Barr, CMO, Alfresco Software.
