New accommodation and ecommerce technology for Mt Buller

With a range of new accommodation options and ecommerce technology in place, the Queen’s birthday long weekend saw a number of snow sport enthusiasts hit the slopes of Mt Buller.

It’s an exciting weekend on the calendar for tens of thousands of visitors to Mt Buller who want to hit the snow, and with a range of new accommodation, it was the first time for many.

It has also been the first time Mt Buller has fully utilised a range of new accommodation and e-commerce technology that the Buller team has been working on for the last ten months.

Following a review of operations at the end of last season, Buller selected a local property management system provider, CMS Hospitality, to integrate its GuestCentrix platform with Inntopia, an ecommerce platform for resorts.

Prior to the long weekend, Buller hospitality manager Harry Wellborne said:  “We can’t wait to welcome our guests this weekend after the many months of hard work we have put in with the team from CMS Hospitality.  Our accommodation at Mt Buller ranges from full service hotels to individually owned apartments with Backpackers and staff housing thrown in so we needed a fully featured yet flexible system and GuestCentrix has provided that.”

Duncan Waterman, global sales director CMS Hospitality said: “Congratulations to everyone at Mt Buller. We wish them the very best for the opening of the snow season. Buller Hospitality is typical of so many local clients we are working with who are looking for solid, down to earth working relationships.  This obviously applies to the relationship between us and the client but also in how CMS Hospitality partners very well with the many other tech vendors hotels need to ensure they can provide their guests a great experience.”
