According to a study by Hospitality Technology, cloud solutions are now standard at most hotels. Increasingly more hotels are leveraging cloud-based solutions to enhance the customer experience, and those that don’t adopt cloud solutions will find that they need to in order to stay competitive..37% of properties are currently running soe tech in the cloud with another 40% planning on migrating.
As cloud-based solutions become increasingly commonplace, with hoteliers expected to invest 7-8% more in cloud technology over the next two to three years, hoteliers may notice another key benefit to adopting cloud-based solutions: an increase in digital security. With digital security threats quadrupling from 1,000 attempts per day in 2015 to 4,000 per day in 2020, switching to cloud-based solutions may aid in better preparing a hotel against potential data leaks. Hospitality’s most popular cloud-based solutions include property management systems and internet solutions. Cloud-based PMSs take critical data security responsibilities off a hotelier and onto their providers, who enable real-time and secure data transfers.
With access management essential to hotel and guest safety and with vital amenities like Mobile Access requiring seamless integration with existing operations, an additional cloud-based solution hoteliers should consider is the implementation of cloud-based access management. Switching to a cloud-based access management system allows hoteliers to maximize the hotel security benefits of the cloud.
