To assist property management system (PMS) developers in integrating the Lodging Link® Cloud Connect product into their solution, the Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol PMS developer kit is loaded with software, samples, tools, and documentation. Creating a single interface to Lodging Link CC allows the PMS partner to have immediate connectivity to over 720 (and growing) GSS interfaces.
