From spreadsheets to cloud PMS - Vanessa Hotel made the switch to improve their hotel’s operations. They implemented Hotelogix PMS in January this year and have since then enjoyed multiple benefits like double the number of online bookings, automated online distribution, synchronized room rate updates on all channels, and more free time of the staff being spent in engaging customers.
Globally, small and mid-sized hotels face multiple challenges in managing the property, with tasks being performed manually. Seasonal hotels like Hotel Vanessa, find it difficult to manage their hotels in off-season months. During off-season, the Vanessa Hotel management team would be away from the property and felt restricted as they could not access the data remotely.
Mr. Dimitris Flemotomos, owner of Hotel Vanessa, identified that a cloud based PMS would eliminate manual dependencies. Mr. Flemotomos and the hotel’s manager, Ms. Gina Mantzioris evaluated other cloud PMSs before zeroing in on Hotelogix. Mr. Dimitris says, “We wanted a cloud based software that would be easy to use and have online distribution capabilities. After a long, relentless search, Hotelogix kept coming up as number 1 on lists of software that would fit our needs, and we saw that there was a free trial period, so needless to say, we gave it a try. We were blown away by all the capabilities of the program. So much so that we did not finish our trial period, we bought the program on the second day. It fits the way hotels in Greece are run so perfectly that we did not hesitate to purchase.”
“After implementing Hotelogix, the hotel enjoyed a relaxed winter for the first time,” says Gina. She adds, “Our bookings have literally doubled since we started using Hotelogix because our allotment is now always open for our Online Travel Agents and our guests always find a room for the dates they are looking for. This used to be a time consuming issue for us because we had to be on top of our allotment at all times!”
Mr. Aditya Sanghi, CEO and Co-founder of Hotelogix is pleased to see hotels making the switch to cloud based PMS and distribution system in recent times. He says, “We are delighted to be driving this change, where small and mid-sized hotels globally are feeling empowered by our solution. Switching to a cloud based PMS makes business sense, as it automates multiple tasks and expands the operational reach of the hotel. We are keen to work with small hotels and provide them with a single point solution to help them manage their property and expand their reach by boosting their online market presence.”
