Save resources by transferring your IT-infrastructure to dedicated specialists. Run SIHOT via the internet with our “Software as a Service” solution. SaaS requires no more than a PC with internet access and Internet Explorer, using the SIHOT software that we provide in a datacentre. If you are travelling, you can still access SIHOT simply by laptop or tablet, to call up the information you need.
A hotel-owned IT-infrastructure requires considerable financial and human resources. SIHOT.Saas relieves the pressures of both: you receive a completely integrated and economic system without having to invest in hardware and software licenses. You will be running SIHOT safely and reliably via internet. Expensive hardware and system maintenance are therefore no longer a cost factor. As a SIHOT.SaaS customer, you‘ll always be using the latest published software version.
Innovative software solutions require an appropriate IT-environment of high standards. This means not only a high cost of entry and a high total cost of ownership, but also inflated operating cost and salaries for qualified IT-staff to maintain this high-level infrastructure. Constant access to the network and to the data stored here is vital for the success of a hotel.Considerable strain is taken off the hotel operation by running SIHOT in powerful data centres. Day-to-day tasks that are normally the responsibility of an on-site system administrator are taken over by the data centre.
Typical tasks include support, technical maintenance and preventive measures. As these are all part of the all-round package delivered with SIHOT.SaaS, freeing otherwise locked up capital for the operation. The data centre offers scalable applications for the individual requirements of each customer. They employ highly skilled staff to ensure that the software infrastructure fulfils the established industry standards. In addition, the environment is constantly monitored and attended to by specialised SIHOT.Technicians.
