Hotel Reopening Trends in a Covid-19 World

As the worst effects of the COVID-19 pandemic ebb, most indicators point to travel coming back — with a vengeance — as people look to reconnect, explore new destinations, or revisit reliable favorites.”

That’s how a McKinsey report describes the present scenario, highlighting the opportunities in the travel and hospitality industry. In fact, did you know that in the US, with two million daily passengers, air travel is already closer to the pre-pandemic level of around 2.5 million?

With countries starting to open up again, the hotel industry is booming and providing guests with new experiences and personalized service. Here are some of the key reopening trends that are reflected today in the hospitality industry –

1.Greater digitalization of the industry

Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, digital reservations have become an even bigger section of the hotel booking volume. It is expected that in the coming future, the entire hotel booking market will be taken over by digitalization. Hotel owners can be expected to improve the digital presence through the following measures:

  • Diversification of online distribution channels
  • Posting content online everyday through a regular digital schedule
  • Using a direct room reservation strategy
  • Having an efficient and aesthetic hotel website with attractive images and offers

2. Wider adoption of hotel technology products

As hotel owners tackle with more competition and changes in guest booking behavior, we are witnessing a wider adoption of hotel technology products.

While hotel channel managers and booking engines were already popular among large and mid-sized hotels and chains, more adoption is expected by small and independent properties as well. Such hotel tech products will enable businesses with more opportunities for online bookings and revenue maximization. It will add to their operational efficiency, saving them cost and providing a competitive edge.

3. Reconsideration of marketing strategies

It is important to focus on driving more guests to the hotel brand website to drive direct bookings. More and more hotels are realizing the importance of generating commission-free bookings and owning the guest relation from start to end. Hence it is critical that hotels –

  • Devise their digital marketing campaigns effectively
  • Give out the right messages to their target audience
  • Establish synergies with other related business vendors for cross-selling Deriving benefits from various tourism-promotion initiatives

4. Innovate boldly

Hotels are expected to go out of the way, to distinguish themselves from the crowd in order to stand out from competitors. Apart from focusing on digital marketing, hotels are looking at innovative technology solutions as well as revenue models to attract different guest segments –

  • Using contactless technology for check-in, check-out, in-room dining and other services.
  • Revenue optimization with day-use booking options.
  • Diversification of array of hotel services for serving more customers and optimization of revenues.
  • Having visitor-first strategies in place.

5. Personalization

In the hospitality industry, personalization has been a much-discussed subject for a long time now. Listening to visitors and accordingly adapting hotel services can be very useful in distinguishing hotel businesses from all competitors out there and building guest loyalty.

It is being expected that hotel owners and managers would go out of their way to personalize services for visitors, in order to provide them with an unmatched and unique experience and ensure a higher level of customer loyalty in the years to come.

6. Staying ready for changes in the hospitality industry

The times are changing and things are evolving very quickly, which means that hotel owners and administrators would be keeping their ears to the ground for new trends and changes in the hospitality industry.

While we aren’t exactly back to normal (and we might never get there), whatever new normal we’re heading towards, there are opportunities in the hospitality industry in heaps for hotel owners and other stakeholders. Understanding the emerging trends and keeping in sync with the changing consumer behavior will ensure that hoteliers stay on top of their business and beat the lingering pandemic blues to achieve the desired scalability.

The Importance of a Property Management System (PMS) in the Hotel Industry

Hotel Property Management Systems have come a long way to become one of the most essential technology tools for accommodation providers today. Simply put, a good PMS is considered the backbone for a hotel. Property management systems make it easier for coordinating the functions of the front office, guest management, sales, planning, and reporting. It allows property owners to manage front desk operations, rates and promotions, and customer loyalty data, consolidating the status of all hotel properties in one place.

Why every hotel needs a PMS and the benefits they can derive?

Guest Reservations

The most important benefit of a PMS is that it helps hotels to seamlessly manage guest reservations. An ideal PMS should allow a hotel to centralize all guest bookings in one place whether they are coming from third party channels. Brand.com or direct walk-ins. When all the reservations are reflected in one place, it becomes easier for the hotel staff to have access to up-to-date inventory information. It gives clarity to hotel employees to know which rooms are reserved and when, so they can manage operations accordingly.

Managing online third-party sales channels

Most PMSs work with various hotel channel managers, like RateTiger, to make it seamless for hotels to transfer rate and availability data to OTAs and get reservation delivery into the hotel system. Some PMSs offer in-built channel management functionality which allows hotels to offer better online reservation experience through a vast network of volume-producing online sales channels.

Revenue Management

Property management systems also helps hotels to manage revenue effectively.  It helps hoteliers to assess the performance of the property, using key performance indicators like ADR (average daily rate), RevPAR (revenue per available room) and GOPPAR (gross operating profit per available room). A good PMS also offers rate plan management where hotels can quickly create room type-rate plan combinations, which assists hoteliers to easily respond to changes in demand. These change in demand may occur due to seasonality, local events, and various other factors.

Front-desk Operations

A front-office module allows a front-desk manager to view and update room reservation status, manage guest check-ins, and process payments. Some property management systems offer integration into check-in kiosks or allow checking in or out via QR code. This module connects reservation, housekeeping, spa, activities, and guest relations management modules in a single environment.

Digital Check-In

With social distancing becoming the norm, digital or contactless check-in is a preference for many guests nowadays. The contactless technology allows guests to arrive, and then check-in using the mobile app on their phone, or by using a self-service check-in machine. The PMS can sync automatically, keeping check-in and occupancy information updated.

Guest Data Management

It is critical for hotels to collect and organize guest data to keep in touch with current and past customers during and after check-out. A CRM integrated with PMS can help the front desk and reservation team to collect all guest information from these sources, store guest data and have a database in an accessible format.  Advanced PMS also enables hotels to manage guest loyalty programs effectively.

Third Party Integrations

Hotels today need multiple technology solutions to manage their property efficiently. But the key challenge for hotels is that most technology solutions work in silo, and it becomes difficult for hotels to get a clear picture of how everything can work together. An integrated system helps hotels to have synchronized data essential for informed decision making. Hence it is important for a hotel PMS to have open API or option to integrate to other technology systems so that hotels can take benefit of it.

Reporting

Last but not the least, is reporting. Everyday hotel staff access many reports including guest data, reservation, booking pace and trends, channel performance and various other relevant metrics for business performance analysis. A good PMS provides quality reports with advanced analytics and insights in easy-to-use formats.

How to get started?

If you are looking for a good PMS, get in touch with us today. RateTiger works closely with all leading PMSs including Opera, Prologic First, IDS Next, WinHMS, ArabSoft, Cenium, Guestline, ePMS, Ezcloud, Hotelogix, HotSoft, Indra, Infor, Protel, Intimus, Mews, Oracle, Skyware, and Visual Matrix,  and we are happy to recommend you systems that work well in your region.
