The Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) is back and Hotelogix will be exhibiting at Booth #139. We look forward to meeting our existing and potential customers at the event. We also plan to forge partnerships and alliances to provide cloud technology to hospitality businesses across the globe.
Cloud adoption is on the rise
The hospitality industry is making a steep shift towards adopting cloud technology. IDC, an industry analyst firm predicts that the private and public market adoption rate of cloud technology is reaching $118 billion in 2015 and crest at $200 billion by 2018. If the growth persists next year, it will mean a 23.2% rise over the $95.8 billion market it reached in 2014.
Cloud is on the rise as more and more hotels are looking beyond the in-house software to cloud based property management systems. Hotels are looking for change and are realizing the benefits of cloud technology which is inexpensive and more reliable compared to the in-house systems that come with many restrictions.
As the hospitality industry is advancing towards cloud technology and with so much of competition among hoteliers, we strongly feel that cloud property management system has a larger role to play in improving a hotelier’s business. The Cloud PMS is no longer just an operational tool but a strategic room distribution tool that markets a small hotelier’s inventories on the diverse channels in real-time.
Fastest Cloud PMS to get started with
Hotelogix, as a SaaS based company is driving the best practices of cloud technology and our efforts have seen the light of the day with our clients benefiting from our solution in 85+ countries. Our aim has always been to make the adoption of cloud easier for the hoteliers. We believe that the switch to cloud should be smooth and instant. Keeping this in mind, we plan to educate visitors at HITEC on how one can get to the cloud in a minute, with just 3 simple steps. Attendees would get to experience the simplicity of our product as our system encourages the end user towards self-directed learning to take full control of the operations. We feel that HITEC will be the ideal platform to let the industry know about the ease of cloud adoption.
