London, ON (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
With 24% of online hotel bookings coming from mobile phones and 55% to 66% of those bookings being made by tablets, mobile apps for the Hotel Property Management System (HPMS) market are becoming integral to the success of the business, according to Info-Tech Research Group. An HPMS Vendor Landscape report, published by Info-Tech Research Group, ranked Infor and MICROS as Champions in a market that is learning new tricks.
“Making reservations through mobile devices, specifically tablets, is becoming more and more critical in appealing to customer booking preferences,” said Victoria Moore, Research Analyst for Info-Tech Research Group. “Social media booking functionality will also be more of a requirement going forward. Integration with major social media channels and customized marketing strategies will need to be developed to meet this rising demand.”
Infor is an expanding organization focused on growing its hospitality line. The vendor not only ranked as Champion in the report, but also won the Best Overall Value and Trend Setter awards. A large provider of enterprise applications and services, Infor has 180 offices in 40 countries and an extensive channel network containing 800 partners.
Also ranking as a Champion, MICROS has built up a strong HPMS offering and a market share that shows it. Their solution, OPERA, has the strongest feature set of all evaluated products and is backed by the trusted vendor strength of MICROS. The vendor is also noted as an ‘Exemplary Performer’ in CMS integration and Scalability.
