USA, Phoenix, Arizona. May 21, 2019

IBC Hospitality Technologies, producer of industry-leading software and services designed to help independent accommodations owners and operators more easily manage and market their properties, announced today a direct integration into Google Hotel Search. IBC's hotelier clients will have instant access to accommodations seekers globally. In addition, the integration will provide hoteliers with direct bookings.

"This is an incomparable opportunity for our clients," says Mike Dunklee, CMO of OBASA Hospitality, the parent company of IBC. "Google is one of the most popular places for people to begin their search for accommodations. This better positions our clients to receive more business, and because of their integration with IBC's distribution technology, they can receive more direct bookings from Google to help drive revenue growth and repeat business."

"Existing customers of IBC are already live on Google's Hotel Search and we are actively seeking additional hoteliers who want to benefit from the integration," says Dunklee. "IBC can professionally manage the metasearch of our clients through our proven MetaLogic program. MetaLogic is producing an average of 12:1 ROI for our customers. It also includes retargeting with the shortest look-back period in the industry, so our clients are only being marketed to warm lead candidates and not wasting their precious marketing budget."

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
