SANTA BARBARA, CA (November 13, 2012) — Katana Software, a custom development and systems integration firm providing hospitality industry software systems has joined the Chairman’s League of the American Resort Development Association (ARDA). Katana’s highly respected ASGARDTM system offers a powerful central database, management dashboards, and consolidated reporting to establish accountability, brand standards, and cost-saving efficiency in every operating department from maintenance to accounting. The software comes with a unique “all-inclusive” service team that works with each customer to help identify specific project goals and provide valuable resources to ensure ongoing success. The ASGARD system ties together asset, reserves, parts and supply inventory, labor, vendor, work order and budget information as an integrated resource for timeshare, fractional, condo-hotel, and homeowner association operators on a dynamically updated basis in all operational areas.
Marriott Vacation Club, Diamond Resorts, Hyatt Vacation Club, MGM and even the San Diego Padres are among Katana’s impressive client list. “We aren’t exactly a secret,” said Rob Woodward, CEO of Katana. “However, we felt it was time for us to take a higher profile role in the shared ownership industry. Our product has been directly developed over the last seven years to meet the challenges of timeshare’s unique and complex property, asset, and service model. ASGARD has been specifically developed to help management ensure their properties and service staffs maximize the guest experience, track and control operations expenses while improving brand performance, and maximize service revenue opportunities. It’s time more of the industry becomes aware of Katana Software and ASGARD’s capabilities. Joining the Chairman’s League is a big step in that direction.”
The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) is the Washington D.C.-based trade association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries (timeshares). ARDA has almost 1,000 corporate members ranging from privately held firms to publicly traded corporations with extensive experience in shared ownership interests in leisure real estate.
