Where does the PMS sit in the new technology stack?

What is the reason why hotels exist? The guest! A PMS is a system to manage a property but not to manage a guest otherwise the name would be GMS - Guest Management System. Hotels lost control of their guests, having about 30 profiles for each guest in multiple systems along the customer journey.

CRM - the Central Element of Success

Hardly any industry collects as much data about its customers as the hotel industry. Along the Customer Journey, each guest leaves hundreds, if not thousands, of digital traces. Modern hoteliers, especially in a post-COVID world must be able to make profit from the opportunities data offers.

Visioning a Post-COVID Era in CRM & Loyalty

Today every guest generates a massive amount of data. But how can these be used profitably? Modern hoteliers, especially in a post-COVID world, must be able to make profit from the opportunities data offers – also to surpass times of crisis in which manual processes are even less viable due to the lack of staff.
