History & Scope of Operations
Xn protel Systems is a global provider of a range of business-critical applications for the hotel sector. Xn protel Systems can provide a “one stop shop” for a hotel’s IT system requirements or can provide “point solutions” which will integrate to the other systems used by the hotel.
Since its formation in the UK in 2002 (as Xn Hotel Systems), the business has expanded rapidly and now employs over 90 people in local offices in the UK, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, India, USA, UAE, Thailand, Taiwan and Malaysia.
In December 2015, protel hotelsoftware became a shareholder in the Company and at the same time the Company changed its name to Xn protel Systems and acquired protel’s business in Dubai. Protel hotelsoftware is a longstanding strategic partner to the business and the investment deepens this relationship and will promote even greater co-operation between the two companies going forward. The additional capital will also enable the business to invest further in sales & marketing, product development and enhancing customer service.

Successful, long-term growth of your independent or multi-unit hospitality operation is a challenge. Whether you operate a private property, a hotel chain or other hospitality foodservice operation, one of the most important decisions you will make is the choice of POS technology.
Xn POS is an innovative, food & beverage management system, designed by F&B POS technology experts and influenced by leading operators in the hospitality industry. Xn POS was created to support the unique dynamics of F&B operations with simple-to-use modules, cued to help staff serve customers more efficiently.
Xn POS is typically deployed as a part local, part web-based, hosted solution. Each terminal is capable of trading standalone in the event of a LAN or internet failure, queuing transactions until a connection is re-established to the back office module, which is hosted in a data centre and accessed via web browser. This architecture also provides benefit to hotels requiring the flexibility to trade in locations where a network connection is not available, e.g. outdoor events.
- Xn POS is flexible. The system can be configured to run from a local server or from regional and centralised servers. Its modular design allows an organisation to deploy the system in the most suitable manner.
- Xn POS can grow with your business – it’s been designed to scale up as your business expands.
- Xn POS can integrate by supporting the development of interfaces to third-party products such as hotel PMS, supply chain management, accounting, EFTPOS.
- Xn POS can manage the global update and distribution of database changes and application version updates from a central point.
