RMS Wins United States Marine Corps Community Services Contract
...and Becomes First PMS to Achieve FedRAMP Certification
RMS – The Hospitality Cloud has become the first accommodation technology company to achieve FedRAMP security certification for its Property Management System enabling it to win a game-changing contract with the US Marine Corps Community Services.
The RMS Property Management System is the only PMS approved for use by US Government agencies – which must deal with FedRAMP certified technology suppliers – giving it a significant first-mover advantage.
RMS founder Peter Buttigieg says it took more than a year to win FedRAMP certification.
“Protecting the data and privacy of our users has always been central to RMS and we’ve really stepped up our security since moving to a cloud-based operating environment, which is guarded by extremely robust firewalls,” Buttigieg says.
He adds, “FedRAMP certification is a resounding endorsement of our military-grade security protocols and measures at a time when privacy has emerged as a major concern for all technology users.
“It also opens up opportunities for us to work with other US Federal Agencies."
Meanwhile, Buttigieg says the US Marine Corps Community Services is implementing the RMS Property Management system across 19 of its Inns of the Corps and Recreational Lodging locations in the United States, Hawaii and Japan.
“We are honoured to have been chosen to work with the US Marine Corps Community Services on this project.”
He says the RMS system includes an advanced property and accommodation management solution with flexible screen layouts ideally suited for the Defence industry. It’s able to handle all scenarios such as change of station move, temporary additional duty, or taking a holiday.
“We’re excited to bring a fully functional FedRAMP certified property management system to the Marine Corps Community Services that will improve the guest experience for military personnel and family,” said Todd Sabo, President, RMS North America.
RMS – The Hospitality Cloud is the world’s fastest-growing Property Management System, used in more than 6,000 hotels, serviced apartments, holiday parks, military bases, work camps, marinas and shopping centres across 30 countries.
Founded more than 30 years ago, RMS has offices in North America, United Kingdom, India, Singapore, the Middle East and is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.
