Next-Generation Hotel and Restaurant Management Technologies: New Smart Decision Guides Now Available for Complimentary Access



CHICAGO, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Starfleet Research this week announced the availability of two new Smart Decision Guides on next-generation hotel and restaurant technologies. These popular and authoritative resources are: The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS Systems and The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Hotel Property Management Systems.

Both Smart Decision Guides are now available for complimentary download by hotel general managers, restaurant operators and other hospitality IT decision makers and influencers. As a token of appreciation for supporting the research, readers will also receive a $20 gift certificate to HotelClocks.com, a division of Timely & Timeless Exquisite Clocks Emporium.

Independently produced by Starfleet Research, the leading provider of best practices IT market research for the hospitality industry, the new editions of these popular titles serve as invaluable resources for hoteliers and restaurateurs seeking to implement next-generation solutions to drive performance improvement.

Both Smart Decision Guides run 45 pages in length and have been completely revised and expanded from previous editions to reflect the latest market trends, guest behaviors and technological innovations. Both publications offer a roadmap for success for decision makers and influencers.

Restaurant Management and POS Systems

According to The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS Systems, 79 percent of restaurant operators believe that advanced technologies are the key to addressing many of their current challenges. At the forefront of these technologies are next-generation restaurant management and point-of-sale (POS) systems. 

According to the new research:

For most restaurants, the return on investment in a next-generation restaurant management and POS system can be measured in terms of cost reduction, which is largely a function of increased staff productivity and resource utilization. It can also be measured in terms of revenue growth. This is largely a function of improved guest satisfaction and, in some cases, faster table turn times ? and, in certain venues, the ability to reach and serve a larger number of guests simultaneously. Additional selling points include the ability to improve financial performance with advanced inventory and labor management tools and better performance reporting capabilities.

Hotel Property Management Systems

The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Hotel Property Management Systems highlights a number of emerging trends, including recent enhancements in analytics and reporting capabilities that are allowing hoteliers to generate more and better insights from their mountains of guest and operational data. It also emphasizes the importance of technology interoperability and data integration.

Among the key findings:

The benefits of a next-generation PMS are multifold. Streamlining operations across the organization and providing better management controls should lead to increased staff efficiency and reduce operational costs. Enhancing Guest Relationship Management capabilities should improve guest satisfaction, loyalty and retention. These improvements should be reflected in increased RevPAR and profitability.

Better data integration and accuracy should improve revenue management and channel management capabilities, also translating into favorable financial outcomes. Robust data analysis and diagnostic tools for performing year-over-year evaluations, identifying emerging market trends, analyzing guest behaviors, etc., should generate actionable insights that help drive continuous performance improvement.

Roadmaps for Success

With more than a hundred solution providers actively developing and marketing hospitality technology solutions, it can be difficult for decision makers to know where to start with the research and evaluation process. The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS Systems and The 2017 Smart Decision Guide to Hotel Property Management Systems offer a wealth of strategic guidance, practical advice and roadmaps for success for not only selecting the right technology solution but also for maximizing its value over time while driving continuous performance improvement.
