NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, today announced its Series of Hospitality Solutions, a set of scalable, cost-effective unified communications solutions designed to support the specific needs of the hospitality industry. Leveraging MTS’ Property Management System interface (PMSi) technology, Panasonic is helping hospitality industry professionals improve staff productivity, save on costs and enhance guest experiences.
