James’ Top Technical Consultancy Tips for your Hotel Project

While each individual case has it’s own unique answers, there are a number of considerations that should be at the top of the list, when considering technology for your hotel:

  1. Guest Requirements – Considering what the guest needs, but also, what the guest wants.
  2. Revenue – How will the solution help the hotel to generate both primary and secondary revenue.
  3. Integration – How will the solution integrate with existing systems?
