Technology across the globe has been evolving continuously and at an extremely rapid pace - and the hospitality sector is no different. Aditya Sanghi, CEO and co-founder Hotelogix states, “Today, hoteliers across the world are switching over to cloud based hospitality solutions to run their business better and bring definite advantages for themselves. Hotelogix, as a part of their business mission, wants to focus on empowering medium and small hotels across the globe to leverage the benefits of a cloud based hospitality solution.”
Through the webinar, Hotelogix plans to illustrate the many benefits that the small and mid-sized hospitality industry can attain by switching to a cloud based solution from a Legacy system. The end of the Legacy system is inevitable because the benefits of using a cloud based solution absolutely outweigh anything that a Legacy system can offer.
Cloud based systems are extremely easy to set up and use and are more cost efficient then a legacy system. Typically, for a 50 room property, the initial investment for a Legacy system would roughly be between 25K to 75K USD (for hardware, licenses, training etc.),whereas the initial investment for a cloud based solution would only be to the tune of around USD 500/-. Also, a cloud based system does not call for any annual maintenance, upgrading and monitoring costs.
Security levels and controls are very high in cloud based systems - data is secure, gets backed up almost real time and for any data transfer/exchange/access there is always a trail available without any cost or effort being incurred for the same .
Cloud based systems are always easily available – from any location. Owners and Stakeholders can be better informed and get MIS wherever they are. Mr. Shahab Hamid, owner of Erbil Oscar Premium Hotel, is of the same opinion, “Compared to an offline legacy model, a great benefit is that even though I travel a lot, I can access my hotel from anywhere, anytime and anyplace.”
For a small and mid-sized hospitality industry, managing distribution can be quite a struggle. Nowadays depending on the geography, a significant chunk of the bookings take place online. With modern cloud based solutions, hotels can easily get connected with the global online market place and distribution channels. This way, they can increase their revenue channels and manage them from a single easy console without requiring extra manpower managing the various distribution channels. Mr. Mark Shamel from Think Properties, New York and Miami happily shares the difference they saw after switching to Cloud, “The results have been phenomenal. The amount of time we took to manage our reservation system and report has fallen by 75%. We never have double bookings and have a clean way to view our progress from anywhere at any time.”
These points only touch upon a few of the numerous benefits of using a cloud-based solution -that would be discussed in the webinar. Hotelogix is keen to share with hoteliers across the globe, the value and science of using cloud-based solutions; to help them leverage the best technology initiatives in their space
