In a recent blog post titled “Making the Switch: Upgrading Your Hotel Property Management System,” we touched upon the differences between local client/server-based and web-based hotel management systems. To build upon this discussion, we will take a deeper look at the advantages of web-based hotel management software and why independent hotel operators are selecting innRoad to manage and elevate their hospitality businesses.
#1: Provides hoteliers with the flexibility needed to operate a true 24/7 business.
As an hotelier, you know that managing a hotel is a true 24 hours a day, 7 days a week operation. Managing daily responsibilities, team members, operational performance and the guest experience is a complex balancing act that requires great attention to detail, organization and flexibility. The challenges faced by independent hotel operators are unique, so this is why innRoad provides web-based hotel management software that is designed with the adaptability and mobility required by busy hoteliers.
We know that some operators delay updating their hotel management systems because they fear purchasing software that is challenging to understand and utilize daily. With this in mind, we designed innRoad with easy-to-use functions and an intuitive interface that allows managers and team members to quickly develop a level of comfort with the system and removes any intimidation that comes with using new technology.
Our Access Anywhere platform lets you access our web-based hotel management software and manage your hotel from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether you are traveling between properties or attending an off-site meeting, innRoad keeps you in total control of your hotel’s operations from wherever the workday takes you.
innRoad also positions your hotel for future growth. Built-in flexibility allows you to add additional rooms or new locations into our hotel management software, so you can manage all of your properties from one fully integrated, web-based system.
#2: Eliminates the need for an in-house “IT expert.”
Due to the high cost of IT support, some independent hotels, as well as other businesses, use a tech savvy team member as their in-house “IT expert” to avoid hefty charges for technical service calls. Though not a wise business decision, it’s a common practice across various industries. However, with our web-based hotel management software, independent hoteliers can eliminate this potentially disastrous practice.
innRoad’s software does not require hoteliers to purchase servers or special hardware, so the potential for costly equipment failure is removed from day one. Our web-based platform allows hotels to automatically receive system updates without purchasing add-ons or needing on-site installation.
We take on the responsibility of securing your data by encrypting it while stored in the cloud, as well as utilizing a dual data center backup system to ensure premium protection. Additionally, whenever you have questions about maximizing innRoad’s capabilities, you have free, 24×7 access to a dedicated Implementation Manager and our Technical Team. Our experts are here to provide ongoing training and help hoteliers unlock the potential in their properties.
#3: Reduces your annual technology spending.
Web-based technology, from personal computing programs to online data storage, has greatly reduced the cost of developing, deploying and maintaining the software and systems that individuals and businesses use daily. This holds true for innRoad as well, so it allows us to pass along cost savings to our customers.
Independent hotel operators are able to manage their properties with our web-based hotel management software for as little as $150/month. With no annual contract, large upfront costs or hidden fees, hoteliers receive an all-inclusive system with the tools, including a Property Management System, Booking Engine, Global Distribution Services and Hotel Revenue Manager, necessary to position their hotel for success and achieve their long-term goals.
