The Case for the Cloud: How the cloud improves productivity and increases flexibility

June 08, 2015

In addition to eliminating time-intensive management and updating of premised-based servers and software, migrating to cloud services also eliminates the time required for equipment installation.

This is the fourth article in a five part series on how the cloud is helping to improve the hospitality industry. Read part three.

In addition to eliminating time-intensive management and updating of premised-based servers and software, migrating to cloud services also eliminates the time required for equipment installation. When a hotel is ready to move to the cloud, they can be up and running on day one with no downtime or loss in productivity. And when a hotel needs to scale up for even more capabilities, they can do so quickly and easily.

Hoteliers can also rest easy knowing that productivity won’t be impacted in the event of an emergency or security breach since many cloud services include disaster recovery to ensure cloud data is backed up and restored, reducing dependencies on redundant, off-site backups.

Cloud data and services can be accessed from anywhere, on any device, giving hotel executives much more flexibility. They can access information, make decisions, and manage their property from offsite, and hotel staff can provide more productive and efficient customer service from anywhere on the property rather than being tied to the front desk.
