Help - How can I afford the latest hospitality software technology for my hotel?

Guestline Blog 22 January 2018
The Hospitality industry is starting to adopt and embrace the benefits of technology leasing. Take the cloud model as an example - essentially the key difference between this model and more traditional technology leasing is that the hardware is stored in a data centre and of course the software is hosted there as well. Costings should not be an insurmountable barrier to optimising your technology set up in order to harness your property’s potential when it comes to using the latest software tools available.

Guestline CTO talks about future proofing your hotel business

Guestline Blog 10 October 2017
Most of the technology industry has moved towards the idea of seamless integration and data flows, enabling richer functionality and greater potential to enhance that functionality too. It is hard to ever fully know how the hospitality industry will evolve in a similar vein. In some ways the sector has been slower – up until now – to adopt the integrated mindset as comprehensively as other industries. For instance, many hotels still host much of their system within their premises, largely due to the need for a physical presence. Encouragingly, more office-related systems are now hosted in the cloud, enabling workers to access systems remotely and therefore also allow the integration of other remotely-hosted systems.

Cyber experts have warned that the travel industry as a whole is particularly exposed to criminal activity

Guestline Blog 20 July 2017
At a special Travel Weekly summit, a group of travel experts examined the growing threat from cyber criminals and what travel firms can do to protect themselves from attack. We heard from experts in cybercrime and data security. It covered fraud, security, cyber-crime, compliance, payments, data, company structures to cope with all this and disaster recovery. In the hospitality industry, as in the wider travel industry, it has become vital that IT security is given priority focus as firms become increasingly global, embrace new forms of payment, outsource to third-party Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions and move to cloud computing. The threat of cybercrime has never been so acute as some major companies outside of the travel sector have found to their cost. Indeed, most recently here in the UK we have also seen the widespread chaos in the NHS that the huge ransomware attack brought about.

Property management systems: the heart of a hotel's IT setup

Guestline Blog 6 February 2017
Sitting at the heart of a hotel's IT setup, a property management system is key to many operators' business. Ross Bentley explores the latest trends A property management system (PMS) is a fundamental part of any hotel's operation. It sits at the heart of the property's IT system and its core function is to manage room bookings and inform staff and managers how many rooms have been sold or are vacant for any particular night, as well as the rates for individual rooms. PMSs can also interface with electronic locking systems, allowing key cards to be encoded and managed. Many larger hotels also integrate their energy management system with their PMS to set room temperatures upon guest check-in and automatically switch to energy-saving mode when they check out. Likewise, because they are at the centre of operations, PMSs have traditionally linked to telephony and in-room entertainment systems, restaurant and bar points of sale, and golf and spa booking facilities, so in-property se
