Interview: First Hotels – A Hotel Technology Perspective

What is important to you related to technology platforms?

We focus on technologies that are simple in nature. They must be easy to learn and easy to implement but also be able to fulfill all our requirements. The company has high turnover as do most hotels companies and thus the system needs the capability to train new employees easily. We also want to limit the number of systems required, and finally, it needs to be future-minded, e.g., mobile check-in/check-out door lock integration and whatever next is going to come down the road.

How Open APIs are Transforming the Hotel Industry

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have been gaining relevance among hoteliers to transform their business and develop their digital capabilities for some time, but have they truly been harnessed to their full potential? As the ‘digital glue’ that links applications together, APIs foster collaboration with both internal and external partners and resources, and ultimately optimize operations and guest experiences.

Read this Article

If you are trying to understand how your hotel can use new technologies to get ahead, then you need the right resources to spell out how these new platforms, devices, and software packages work together, and why each is necessary for you to create a great overall experience for your guests. That means having a combination of articles, podcasts, and other reports that help you see how each new innovation helps to make hospitality management easier, less expensive, and more efficient.

Understanding Security

At StayNTouch, we understand that one of the main concerns you have when adopting new technologies is your security. This is especially important in an industry whose entire focus is on providing guests with a safe, comfortable place to stay while they are away from home. From your building security to your payment information and accounts, you need to know that your new technological tools will not expose you to liability, and some of the resources here are built to help you understand how different tools deal with those security questions.

Efficiency and Cost Savings

There’s more to new hospitality management tools than just security and the guest experience. Cloud-based apps that are accessible from standard mobile devices also provide you with a variety of benefits that directly affect your behind-the-scenes management of your business, including:

  • Infrastructure savings that stem from “software as a service” agreements that decrease up-front costs while taking care of upgrades as they roll out
  • Increased efficiency in both processing and record-keeping, making your bookings easier to confirm, track, and modify
  • Lowered operating costs as a side-effect of increased efficiency, lower labor, and more staff flexibility
