Technology is revolutionizing every industry, including hospitality. While the industry may seem relatively static as there is not much to improve, nothing could be farther from the truth. Technology like the cloud is turning the industry on its head and streamlining operations for staff and guests alike. Here are a few of the different advantages that Azure cloud computing brings to the hospitality industry.
Smart Energy Management
One of the most significant technology trends that is changing every industry, including hospitality, is that of smart technology. Smart technology and intelligent energy-management systems provide the same functionality as their traditional counterparts but can do so more efficiently. When interfaced with the cloud and internet of things (IoT) technology, these systems can monitor when people will need these appliances and give them what they need without being a considerable energy strain. These systems can also indicate when systems are not performing as well or potentially failing, signaling that you can repair them before problems become worse.
Improved Guest Experiences
Another advantage Azure cloud computing brings to the hospitality industry is the streamlined guest experience. With cloud computing, guests can access all aspects of the hotel that would have needed to work with a concierge or attendant to solve. Checking in and out is easy through an application when guests utilize the cloud, and room service is similarly simplified. Using the cloud also means that staff don’t need to be attached to a single computer, and they can instead be mobile, moving throughout the hotel while still able to take care of things through a tablet.
Another way Azure cloud computing is transforming the hospitality industry is that it makes remote work infinitely easier. The cloud allows the managers and executives to work on tasks wherever they are instead of needing to come into the hotel. Traveling has always been a barrier for many industries, especially hospitality, as people could not work when traveling to conferences or industry expos. Employees have traditionally needed to be in the office to do any work. With Azure cloud computing, people can work from anywhere and collaborate with others in or out of the office.
These were only a few of the advantages of Azure cloud computing in hospitality, but they reflect how significant and influential the cloud has become.
