Enterprise System Pitfalls: Summary
Today I’m wrapping up a series of posts on the broad topic of Enterprise System Pitfalls. In this series, my hope was to help shed light on the primary problems that cause us to miss budgets, fall short on capabilities, or completely fail when implementing an enterprise system. 

The Year in Review
 
As 2019 comes to a close, it’s time to count our blessings. One of mine has been the privilege (and fun!) of being able to reach out to so many interesting companies and get them to tell me what they’re doing that’s different, disruptive, and game-changing. The list of things I have to write about in future columns has only gotten longer in the nine months since I started writing this column.

Sustainable Innovation
 
Sustainability can yield multiple benefits to hotels. Saving energy and water yields direct cost savings. Revenue can be generated by guests who prefer to deal with businesses that minimize their environmental impact. And many would argue that conserving scarce resources is simply the right thing to do.

Meetings Innovation
 
The sale and delivery of groups and meetings is perhaps the most significant and under-automated functions for many hotels. Even though groups often account for 30% to 60% of revenue, most group bookings are still handled manually for most if not all of steps, as they move from a meeting planner’s research to a confirmed booking.

The biggest enemy to any system is complexity. In a system of inputs and outputs, such as an enterprise system, more complexity means more parts are used in interaction with inputs to create the outputs. Every part that must be built and maintained costs time and money

Why Blogging is Important

10/03/2017
by Nimesh Dinubhai



Blogging has been an important part of online marketing for a variety of industries for some time. It has been the most consistent trend in SEO and is still relevant even now. There are several reasons why this is so despite the changing of algorithms and other new methods. Blogging continues to prove content is king. Here is why blogging is important...

1. Blogging Gives You Fresh Content
The challenge for most websites is getting regular fresh content to attract new customers, keep the page relevant and rise up the Google rankings. All search engines select fresh content first. While re-editing your content can work it will fail in terms of variety and users soon get bored hence the need for blogging.

2. Blogging Offers Additional Service to Customers
Many people usually search for information concerning products and services instead of a specific brand or outlet. Having a blog regularly updated allows you to provide this information in your field both for new and potential customers. It leads them from your blog to your site giving you quality leads.

3. Blogging Offers Chance for Interaction and Collecting Feedback from Clients
Blogs have a comment section where you can get feedback and views about topics and events you have written about. You can interact with the readers as they share your posts or provide insights and reviews regarding what you have written.

4. Blogging Allows You to Have Content to Share
Blogging also forms an integral part of social media marketing. In social media you will have to offer daily fresh content across multiple platforms. Blogging not only gives you the content to share but also allows you to have content that is engaging and likely to create more engagement and interest more than just price updates.

5. Implement SEO and Get Higher Rankings
Blogging also gives you a better platform to implement most, if not all, of the various SEO techniques. You can have inter-page back links as well as links to other quality sites. You also get to have targeted content and key words, optimized photographs and images and several other SEO strategies. These along with the quality fresh content help you rank higher on search pages results. In return, you get more traffic and increased conversions.

6. Promote Your Events
If you are having events, blogging offers you a better way to promote them highlighting their attraction without much sales talk. It also makes you an authority and this improves your credibility among visitors and search engines.
