We are continuing our 6 part series on How to Choose a New PMS.

Over the course of the 6 episodes we will explore the following:

  • What is the role of the PMS, why it is so important and what are the signs you might need to consider an update.
  • Evaluating your needs – what you should consider about your hotel needs before embarking on a new solution.
  • What features should you consider in a new PMS.
  • Selecting a provider.
  • Functionality and Practicality – what do you actually want the PMS to do.
  • Implementation – what are some of the key points to consider as you embark on implementing your new system.

Today we bring you Episode 3:
