The RoomMaster database currently assigns property numbers as all numerics, e.g., 12345. This project will enhance RoomMaster to support alpha-numeric property numbers, e.g., ABCDE, ABC12, A12T4, etc.

There is no impact to existing properties—they will not be re-assigned as alpha-numeric property numbers. Only new properties added to the RoomMaster database will be assigned alpha-numeric property numbers. Once this occurs, the database will have a mix of properties with numeric property numbers and properties with alpha-numeric property numbers.

This project will be implemented in two phases.

Phase 1 – Planned for loading 17 October
Make the necessary changes to the Focalpoint formats you use for shopping and booking hotels.

Phase 2 – Scheduled to load before 31 December 2012
This phase will prepare the RoomMaster maintenance database and related systems for supporting alphanumeric property numbers.
