|In-Room & Wireless Internet Billing Interface
||Resort Data Processing has partnered

with optional billing to the guest folio. Nomadix
is the leading supplier of solutions for wired in-room Internet
and wireless "hot spots" with solutions for properties ranging
from 20 to 2000 rooms.

of point-of-sale systems with the following features:
- Automatically post charges to the guest folio from
a restaurant, bar, spa, golf course, gift shop, etc.

POS system supports this feature. For example,
a clerk in the restaurant can first inquire to see who
is in Room 102, prior to posting a charge.
- Optional pre-check-in posting is available for all
POS interfaces using the "Micros" standard. For
example, a guest may arrive at the property at noon,
but the room is not ready until 4:00pm. The guest
can put a credit card on file and start charging items
immediately using their reservation number as verification.
- Optional post-check-out posting is available for
all POS interfaces using the "Micros" standard.
For example, a guest may checkout at noon but still
