The HotelTechAwards (produced by Hotel Tech Report) announced the year's top rated hotel technology companies and products based on more than 20,000 hotelier ratings and data-points.
During the HotelTechAwards thousands of hoteliers leave honest reviews of vendor partners across the hotel tech stack. This data is used to identify the best companies based on the judges that matter most - customers.
The competition spans core areas of hotel technology: marketing, revenue, operations and guest experience. 2019 Voting included participation from major hotel groups including: Four Seasons, Movenpick, Hilton, Marriott, Kerry Hotels, Auberge Resorts, Best Western, Accor Hotels, Rosewood and dozens more.
"We're seeing unprecedented disruptive forces impacting the hotel industry today and technology is our only line of defense. Hotels that operate the same way they did even 5 years ago are quickly becoming the fallout of these tectonic shifts," says Jordan Hollander, CEO of Hotel Tech Report.
"The gig economy has brought immense recruiting challenges for hotels, the sharing economy has created similar threats from a competitive perspective and that's not even scratching the surface. Adding fuel to the fire, experts are predicting extremely challenging economic conditions in 2019-2020 - this is the perfect storm. The HotelTechAwards identify the best companies to help hoteliers weather the storm through everything from time saving automation to pricing optimization. Great technology solutions can help hotels bring in more business, operate more efficiently and adapt in a rapidly evolving market."
The HotelTechAwards are often referred to as "the Oscars of Hotel Tech" and winners were selected from more than 180 of the top technology products around the world. The HotelTechAwards are the industry's only data driven awards platform with winners determined not by a handful of judges but by a global community comprised from thousands of verified hotel technology users across more than 120 countries.
