With massive amounts of data now available to hotels, it’s safe to say that all future technologies will rely on data and integrations. The importance of data is evident, writes SnapShot’s Carson Booth, but it’s essentially worthless unless it is properly stored, intelligently connected, and made accessible. Without the technology to bring data together, data becomes unmanageable and data silos are unavoidable. The decentralized nature of the hotel and restaurant business and the lack of integrations between channels across the industry have made the need for an independent system to collect and connect all hotel data inevitable. Enter the data platform.

A great deal has been written over the years about the viability of moving a hotel's property-management system (PMS) to the cloud to take advantage of the latest technologies, but hoteliers need to realize that it's not the only viable option. All platforms have advantages, including self-hosted, private cloud and on-premise solutions that leverage the latest mobile, contact free and web-based technologies. Independent operators can still enhance the digital guest experience, support personalized and mobile check-in, deploy contact free technologies, and secure hotel/guest data even if their PMS does not reside in the cloud. It should not be a question of "Cloud or On Premise?" but rather "Does the PMS solve your business objectives in both technology and service?"

The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a severe toll on the global hotel industry. In Canada alone, the accommodation and food services industry (the hospitality industry in a broad sense) accounts for 1.3 million jobs in the national economy, and contributed $44.6 billion to Canadian GDP in 2019. In Canada, as in all countries around the world, travel restrictions have led to staggeringly low occupancy levels, sometimes in the single digit percentage.

They say that smooth seas do not make for skillful sailors, and indeed, over the past several months, that belief has been put to the test. As global communities continue to work tirelessly to combat the spread of the coronavirus, the hospitality industry has been placed in an incredibly vulnerable position. But, within that sobering reality, it's important to remember that the hospitality sector is no stranger to crisis. Our industry has survived countless challenges and periods of economic downturn, and COVID-19 is no exception.
We’re seeing a dramatic shift in the hotel distribution landscape right now. For the last decade, writes Travel Tripper’s Gautam Lulla, there’s been a boom in the number of new hospitality technology providers entering the market. These companies introduced fresh ideas and products into a tech landscape that had long been stagnant. We’ve now reached a point of maturity, and the industry is moving toward a "platformization model.”
