MSI, Libra OnDemand, Accuvia Consulting, Hospitality Technology Magazine and a host of other industry vendors are coming together to deliver next-generation technology for two lucky winners of the Ultimate Hotel Technology Make-Over Contest.

Launched at HITEC in Anaheim this year, the contest has driven responses by full service as well as limited/select service properties.  What’s not to love about the chance to win free technology for your property? 

In their submissions, when asked, “Why are you a good candidate for a technology make-over,” candidates have responded, “We are still in the stone age regarding our interfaces, networking, and peripherals. We can use all types of technology upgrades to bring us into the 21st century” and “…if we win the technology make over, we would seek to improve guest satisfaction by providing them with the stronger service and amenities expected at a first class property.

Additionally when asked to provide a response to their expected outcome of having a technology makeover many are stating, “new systems would provide ROI in time management, access to guest data and improved guest service” as their driving factors. Comments include, “What I would further hope is that having the latest technology systems would allow us to improve our ability to manage reservations and profile data between many properties, reduce costly errors and improve our bottom line, find out if multiple vendors really can work together," and, “ …to be able to provide guests, staff and management the information they, anytime any where they need to conduct business, in an efficient manner.”

Are you completely satisfied with your current technology?  Not just your PMS, or your CRM, your POS, your in-room and energy management systems?  Do you have consolidated data to plan for your long-term business goals, business intelligence tools to manage short term goals? Do all of your systems and vendors work together to meet your needs?  If not, you are the perfect candidate for this contest.  Enter now –

Watch for additional vendor participation, as the winners are identified (one per category – limited/select service and full service) and requirements are documented.  Contest ends October 20, 2009.
