What Hotel Owners can Learn from Gordon Ramsey
If you are a hotel manager in 2017 you likely have two guilty pleasures in life. The first will see you furtively scan through your competitors Tripadvisor reviews. The second will see you nurture a secretive addiction to television series such as Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell – after all, who doesn’t like to see their competitors being taken to the cleaners?
Did you know, however, that Gordon Ramsay himself has been quietly revolutionizing the U.S. hospitality industry?
Gordon Ramsay’s Big Property Management System Plug
If you are a watcher of shows like Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell, you won’t have missed how every hotelier’s worst nightmare has recently begun ending his shows by giving away free Hospitality Management System subscriptions to the hotels he works with. In fact, Gordon will often go to lengths to cite every possible benefit of the new hotel computer software as he fully understands that the assets of a running a truly efficient business cannot be over emphasized.
Why the Right Hotel System Matters more than ever in 2017
As technological advances continue to increase at breakneck speeds, Gordon Ramsay is really helping the hotels he works with by advocating the adoption of smarter Property Management Systems.
The reason for this is simple. Many smaller hospitality accommodation providers are still using standalone software programs to manage reservations and bookings which just don’t live up to the demands of the 21st century.
While early Property Management Systems were once perfect for meeting the needs of the average hotelier, the majority of hotel reservations today are made through a variety of online Booking Channels.
Regardless of whether you love or hate Booking.com and the like, what this means is that if your existing hotel system isn’t fully integrable with online Booking Channels such as these, you are years behind the times already. What’s worse is that double bookings arising from hoteliers having to manually manage allocations on different Channels is the leading cause of double bookings and lost overnight revenue in 2017.
