Magna Computer Fulfills DiamondHead’s New Year’s Resolution

Ft. Meyers Beach, FL,
February 26, 2009

-DiamondHead Beach resort starts the New Year with Magna Computer Timeshare Software. In December 2007 DiamondHead Beach Resort became the most recent property in South West Florida to offer vacation ownership opportunities in the past 15 years and is feeling a very positive response from vacationers. Tours and sales have been steadily increasing each month despite the down turn in the economy. Now, over a year later, resort owners decided it was time to upgrade their tracking system; Excel spread sheets had become too cumbersome to use when tours and sales volume increase each month. For example; preventing guests from touring more than once is difficult to track from spreadsheets.

General Manager, Neil Hopgood, knew the importance of quality software for tracking their vacation ownership information. After comparing Timeshare Software, Magna Computer was the chosen product. Mr. Hopgood proclaimed that “with Magna you can slice and dice data in numerous ways. You know who toured when, which marketing source they came from, who toured again, who bought what, and from which salesperson.”

SunStream Hospitality Management Company is the parent company to the property. They also own and manage 5 other properties as condo hotels in the Naples / Ft. Myers areas; Bellasera, Park Shore and Port of the Islands in Naples and GullWing and Pointe Estero on Fort Myers Beach. Sunstream management has been dedicated to attention to detail and warm hospitality with a focus on quality in appearance, atmosphere and amenities. Combined with Magna Timeshare Software and a set of core values that integrate through their properties, DiamondHead and SunStream’s newest venture looks like it will be a solid investment to their portfolio.

DiamondHead Resort is the only full-service all-suite resort on Fort Myers Beach. This Gulfside resort is full of amenities and exciting beach activities perfect for an escape from your busy life. Located on Fort Myers Beach, DiamondHead features casual to upscale waterfront dining, plus the opportunity to enjoy dinner from the best seat in the house – overlooking the Gulf from the privacy of your very own balcony. Water recreational options are endless, and you’re just steps away from all the activity at the heart of the island. Every room has a view and screened in porch.

MAGNA Software Installed and Implemented at Xanadu Resort & Marina

Freeport,GB (The Bahamas),
December 19, 2008

-Magna Timeshare Software has recently installed and implemented its ASP hosted software at Xanadu Beach Resort and Marina. One of the premier resorts in the Caribbean (Bahamas), Xanadu, is situated on the South side of the Island of Grand Bahama and sustained some damage to their IT system during the hurricanes of 2004. Prior to the storms Xanadu had a competitors’ software and decided not to go back.

By using MAGNA’s ASP (application server provider) hosted software, Xanadu is afforded the ease and security of not having to maintain a server of their own. If they do get another season of bad storms their main technology structure will not be in jeopardy. MAGNA will host the software at a secure server facility with storm protection and multiple power and internet back up systems. Xanadu still has access and control of their data and full use of the software system.

Xanadu’s new C.E.O, Agnes McIntosh, along with the newly appointed Project Director, George Provenzano, welcomes Magna to the Xanadu family. With the new timeshare software system, Ms. McIntosh and Mr. Provenzano, will have instant access to the hundreds of reports without having to export and create new ones. Reports like; total sales persons reports, contract & inventory reports, commissions reports for OPC and sales people, telemarketing reports, tour reports, maintenance fees reports and mortgage reports.

Ms. McIntosh said “MAGNA timeshare software has demonstrated their ability to understand their client’s needs and customize a solution to fit. They have been thoroughly professional throughout our involvement and we would have no hesitation in working with them on future developments or in recommending them to other vacation ownership businesses.”

—The Xanadu Beach Resort and Marina is located on the southwest coast of Grand Bahama Island on a mile long private white sand beach. There are 179 spacious units; all offering balconies and dramatic views. The hotel offers tennis courts, gym, snorkeling/diving, internet and a Beach Bar and Grill. Xanadu also offers a wide range of water sports including a dive shop on the property.
