Hotel management systems are shifting from on-property to cloud-based, from tethered to mobile, from data-heavy to insight-rich. Over the long-term, the result is the same: a massive, impending re-architecting of how properties are managed. HT spoke to both hoteliers and PMS vendors for feedback on trends ranging from cloud-based solutions to expanding mobile capabilities, the possibilities rich data can provide in personalizing the guest experience, and more.
Traditionally the property management system has been positioned as the central component in hospitality operations, however as the industry evolves and guests take more control of their stays, is a retooling of the term PMS a necessity to stay abreast of trends?
