InnDependent Boutique Collection (IBC) Hotels have collaborated with leading cloud PMS provider, Hotelogix and put together a lucrative deal for HSS customers to simplify their switch from an in-premise system to the cloud. The two hospitality companies have established end-to-end integration between the platform and the system, providing new customers with a simplistic yet powerful interface for their hotel management as well as distribution.
Legacy or in-premise systems are on the verge of phasing out and the cloud is gaining widespread prominence as a robust, easily accessible platform that owners can sign into from anywhere in the world. New-age consumer demands, such as mobile, meta and search compatibility and the ability to stay connected to various properties in real time heavily favor the cloud as well. Only cloud technology has the ability to sell rooms online, staying connected with various places where consumers are. In order to sustain their business in such a highly competitive market, hoteliers will need to adopt cloud technology sooner rather than later. The legacy system is in its last leg due to its inability to adapt to these ever-changing market dynamics.
“IBC believes that independent hotels need access to the best tools to compete against the evolved brands, changing distribution and regain their customer relationships by owning their own guest information to drive repeat business, and by implementing modern, cloud-based solutions. Our partnership with Hotelogix helps us provide our members with the best of both worlds!” said Pamela Barnhill, the organization’s president & COO.
The partnership between Hotelogix and IBC Hotels provides hotel owners looking to migrate to the cloud with an exclusive offering where they qualify for free IBC membership and get a free channel manager with Hotelogix’s PMS. IBC also provides independent properties with the opportunity to boost their direct bookings from sources like Google meta-search, custom website + booking engine, GDS and also drive more repeat bookings through InnDependent InnCentives loyalty program. Complete guest information is also shared with the property. Additionally, hotels save 10% on IBC booking commissions when they register for the PMS plan. Click here for more details.
“The cloud-based PMS is the future of hospitality and we are committed to providing HSS customers with an opportunity to shift to a new-age cloud solution that will grow their business. Ensuring a smooth transition of all their operations will be our priority and our reliable 24/7 support will help get hotels on-board in a matter of days. In-premise PMS’s are soon approaching end of life. HSS’s fate is just the beginning of a trend – many will follow suit as the value of the cloud becomes indisputable in the SME hospitality segment,” said Aditya Sanghi, CEO and co-founder of Hotelogix.
The cloud-based PMS provider significantly lowers costs for hoteliers by providing them with an off-the-shelf solution that does not incur any capital expense. All other IT, infrastructure and maintenance related expenses are also eliminated as the software is hosted on off-site cloud servers. It’s only a matter of time before hoteliers are left with no choice but to migrate to the cloud in order to remain competitive in today’s dynamic market.Click here for the exclusive offer.
