LONDON, UK (June 22, 2011) — Created five years ago and with inventory owned in Sanya (Hainan province), Lijiang (Yunnan province), Yangshuo (Guangdong province), Huangshan (Anhui province) and Xi’an (Shaanxi province), Universal Vacation Club now has over 6,000 members.
Merlin was introduced to the Club by the Hutchinson Group, which has been using Merlin for its trustee operations for a number of years.
Paul Smythe, Consultant for the Hutchinson Group in Asia, explained: “We decided to recommend Merlin Software to the team to help improve the control they have of a new and experimental in-house timeshare operation (which is almost unknown in the Chinese market). As Merlin Software uses the latest cloud-computing technology and runs across the Internet it is ideal for multiple offices to access the same data at the same time without any expensive communication links. Merlin is also flexible to handle any timeshare product which has made implementation so easy for the team.”
Merlin Software provides a complete, single software solution for today’s resort and timeshare business from single timeshare weeks to complex fractional ownership and destination clubs.
Developed as state of the art Business Application Software, Merlin is the only software available that is intrinsically 100%web-based and served totally over the Internet using cloud-computing technology. It is not functionality that has been added as an afterthought in order to keep up with modern trends. Users access their Merlin accounts securely via a web browser from anywhere. Functionality includes the Merlin marketing, sales, front office and back office modules, stand alone exchange facility and website integration.
The technology platform for Merlin consists of a Microsoft SQL Server database back end with the front end built using Active Server Pages (Browser Front End).
