The grand movement to unify the disparate and fragmented technologies and data siloes that has been underway for years, even decades, is now an achievable goal.

Today, next-generation hospitality technologies are empowering hoteliers with the ability to drive ever-increasing levels of efficiency and effectiveness in their operations, including ever-improving levels of guest service, unlike ever before. As part of their technology modernization process, hoteliers are phasing out function-specific, standalone software programs that are unable to “talk” with one another. In their place hoteliers are deploying technologies that can connect and seamlessly share data. Combined, these technologies can automate all of the different functions that take place across the property — and, if required, across multiple properties — in a unified and integrated fashion.
