What does this mean
To adopt a single global system for all your hotels, even if it is a worldwide cloud, is a brave move. The nightmare of most hoteliers is a front-desk failure, which is all too apparent to customers (‘guests’). Hence, for multi-property operators, the past preference for an architecture where one failure does not bring down all properties.
If this Infor cloud implementation were to fail it might take all, not one. The increasing reliability of cloud solutions, however, mitigates this – and most of The Pavilions’ hotels are in locations with good support.
