Cloud-based PMS Hotelogix.com launches a new application programming interface for hotel groups and chains, which enables development of a mobile- and or tablet-based property management application, customized to specific requirements.
Using the new Hotelogix APIs, hoteliers can create their own exclusive PMS apps for a level of enhanced control on their front desk management and housekeeping. This in turn allows them to target specific dynamics and address their business concerns with deeper insight and objectivity.
Hoteliers have the ability to tailor their own interface also, allowing staff greater bandwidth to focus on improving guest experience due to the app's simplicity. Hoteliers won't have to introduce a new complicated technology that takes time to learn, but can rather use the existing tools and workflows their workforce is already accustomed or conducive to using.
Crucially, the launch also offers ability to have a very simple user interface with limited options with which to work, opening up the hotel industry to a wider array of management.
“This launch will empower hotel chains to adopt technology to automate their processes with greater control,” said Prabhash Bhatnagar, founder of Hotelogix. “The small and mid-segment hospitality industry is growing and transforming at a rapid pace. It needs flexibility and agility, in the way it adopts technology.
“The hospitality industry in this segment has seen high cost of resources, high attrition and also has been pained by steep learning curve of complex systems. This one new approach will address all these issues and also widen the scope of employability, whereby hotels would not need to necessarily employ experienced hospitality specialists or professionals on their front desks, for regular operational tasks.”
