Centrada Solutions provides a full spectrum of managed IT services for hotels, management companies, owners and brands. Centrada’s goal is simple: Partner with its clients to understand their needs and then deliver the IT systems, services and support they need, when they need it, at a reasonable cost.

Centrada has more than 100 associates nationwide ready to serve its clients. Centrada’s senior leadership team averages more than 20 years of hospitality operations and technology management experience. Centrada’s team combines to deliver a broad in-depth knowledge of technology systems and the best ways to install and operate them within a hotel environment. Centrada provides IT services to more than 36 percent of the top 25 management companies in the industry.

Its associates understand that each client and each hotel has unique technology needs. Due to that uniqueness, Centrada doesn’t offer a “one size fits all” technology platform. It works directly with the hotel (or its chosen third-party vendor) to first analyze and understand the hotel’s needs before it makes recommendations on which of the dozens of options could be right for the property.

The Centrada team is organized into four distinct and unique service groups focused on managing a hotel’s needs:

Operations
Centrada’s operations group manages a 24x7x365 help desk which services more than 1,000 hotels, management company corporate offices, and owner corporate offices. The help desk operates under a one-stop philosophy of handling all calls. Regardless of the brand of the hotel, the vendor of the service, or the individual hotel technology challenge, Centrada’s team owns the call until the client is satisfied.

Client Services
Each client has a dedicated client services manager assigned to its account who has experience working with any opportunities the client may have. The account manager will help each client with the scoping of any projects ranging from the replacement of a single piece of hardware, to architecting the complete package of technologies required for the successful opening of a new hotel.

Professional Services
This seasoned team of hospitality professionals ensures that the implementation of all hotel technologies occurs seamlessly as a turnkey implementation. Professional services maintains frequent communications with all interested parties throughout the effort. This turnkey philosophy allows the hotel personnel to remain focused on guests, not on the technology.

Technical Services
Because Centrada provides a wide variety of managed services to its clients, the company has a team of highly skilled and experienced technicians who serve as its backbone for the implementation and maintenance of all technologies Centrada works with. In addition to providing third-tier technical support for the other Centrada teams, technical services maintains a variety of installed services such as backups, antivirus, patch management, firewall scans and network diagrams, among others.

Centrada prides itself in partnering with its clients to deliver solutions which are flexible in terms of both options and pricing. Hotels can let Centrada know how it can partner with them today to help address their technology needs by emailing info@centrada.com or calling (972) 746-4374.
