It’s high time for you to make some drastic changes in your hotel and accommodation business and set up a hotel management system. Here’s why:

The Philippines is home to six UNESCO world heritage sites. It has a fast-growing and dynamic business process outsourcing (BPO) and gaming industry. It is also heavily favored by foreign backpackers, budget travelers, and beach lovers. All of these fuel the booming tourism and hospitality industry in the Philippines.

But despite the positive outlook of the tourism industry in the country, why is it that only a handful of hotels are experiencing a surge of business?

There are five factors:

  1. The star accreditation system. For the past few years, the accreditation system of the Department of Tourism (DOT) has been updated multiple times. Hotels that were unable to keep up with getting the necessary number of points were demoted to a lower star rating. Tourists who often rely on this rating tend to snub lower-rated hotels.
  2. Budget-friendly lodgings. Budget travelers and backpackers are mostly attracted to inexpensive lodgings, such as hostels and Airbnb.
  3. Condo rentals. These often serve as alternative accommodations to travelers who prefer Airbnbs — hotels aren’t top of mind with them.
  4. Online travel agencies (OTAs). Most hotel bookings nowadays are done through online travel agencies. Traditional hotels that don’t list their properties online miss out on this opportunity. 
  5. Booking website. When travelers shop around and can’t book the hotel that they prefer in online travel agencies, their next step is to search for the hotel’s website. Most hotels in the Philippines don’t have a website or don’t have a booking functionality on its website.

While not all hotels can’t compete with budget-friendly lodgings, they can work on other factors — such as having a direct booking website and listing on OTAs — to up their chances of getting booked and benefiting from the booming tourism industry in the Philippines. The simple solution to that? Automating operations and functions with a hotel management system or HMS. 

A hotel management system is a type of property management system that facilitates the admin processes and operations of hotels, making it easier for owners to run their business and guests enjoy a more positive experience, from online booking to offline check-out.

Standard hotel management system features include online booking, channel management, and the like. But some HMS come with customizable options. For example, all Globe myBusiness Hotel Management System packages offer ready-made solutions to streamline front desk, online sales, and marketing to increase revenue and improve operations, but have various add-ons depending on the package.
