Digital Efficiencies Attracts Alternate Venues to Hotel PMS

Leading Hotel Management System SIHOT is Proving Its Worth to Non-Traditional Accommodation Providers and Hospitality Venues.

Germany, Saarland, Schiffweiler. November 22, 2022

Non-traditional hospitality providers and venue managers are turning towards hotel property management systems (PMS) to drive efficiencies and digitalise operations to cope with industry changes.

SIHOT hotel management system has been empowering new sectors to emerge from the pandemic stronger, with corporate training centres (including Lufthansa and Coreum ), sporting associations (such as Sportverband für das Saarland ), churches ( Erzdiözese München und Freising ), sporting events (like the Castanea Resort Championship on Germany's Pro Golf tour ), glamping sites, and youth hostels using the technology to enhance operational efficiencies and customer experience.

"As venues adapt to consumers' increasing demand for digital experiences and the need to provide unique hospitality offerings, having flexibility in its management system is key," says Carsten Wernet, CEO of SIHOT. "Whether it's a sprawling site such as Reserva Alecrim Eco Suites, the diversity of a youth hostel with DJH, or a training venue like Collegium Glashütten, our technology is able to adapt to business needs and deliver results."

For Commerzbank's training centre - the Collegium Glashütten Zentrum für Kommunikation - the ability to customise SIHOT's solutions was key. With a focus on cost saving and streamlining work processes, the venue selected SIHOT to replace its previous PMS provider of over 20 years, implementing the software to assist in its post-pandemic recovery.

"The event management module integrated in the PMS is a unique selling point of SIHOT. We haven't come close to finding a comparable system within a Cloud solution," said Andreas Nordmann, Managing Director of Collegium Glashütten.

Portugal's Reserva Alecrim Eco Suites Resort offers multiple accommodation options from safari glamping tents to star-gazing dome houses, spread across 24 hectares. SIHOT's solutions solved the organisation's desire to automate previously time-consuming tasks and enabled their team's communication to improve from all corners of their expansive property. Reserva Alecrim moved from a traditional campground management software to a more comprehensive property management system.

"With SIHOT, we have more information, which makes us better. SIHOT has helped us grow, and is enabling us to plan an exciting future," said Lurio Alves, Hotel Manager at Reserva Alecrim.

Die Jugendherbergen (DJH) - the Youth Hostel Association of Rhineland, Palatinate and Saarland - caters for families, independent travellers, couples and groups. The diverse booking profile of youth hostel guests present a unique challenge - one that SIHOT was able to assist with. The association's desires to have a robust online booking system, central guest database for more structured processes, and meaningful yet simple access to data were key in selecting SIHOT's solutions.

"We have designed our booking process with SIHOT in such a way that guests can book even complex group trips online immediately," said Carsten Groeger, Marketing of DJH. The group wanted something "as simple as possible for the user - not only online bookings, but also for internal processes." SIHOT.CRM enabled DJH to create robust data processes across its 42 properties.

Guest Service: Exceeding Expectations

When guests check into a hotel, they have expectations of quality customer service. They expect to have their needs met in a professional manner, they desire a certain level of comfort, and possibly even made to feel a little special. This is important because satisfied guests are more likely to return and to become true brand ambassadors. But what if instead of merely meeting expectations, hotels created a culture of service that was intent on exceeding expectations in every conceivable way? What if frontline staff were trained and empowered to provide guest services that demonstrate a willingness to always go the extra mile in order to please their guests? This culture is exactly what some hotels are creating in their operations. From helpful, smiling, welcoming staff to the quality of  a room's comfort and conveniences. From discovering a guest's special needs and enthusiastically fulfilling them, to making some amenities free of charge and offering random upgrades. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to enhance and enrich their guest services.
