Avenue9 brings together expert Hospitality IT Knowledge coupled with a pragmatic commercial approach that meets the needs of the industry.
Having a clear IT Strategy is paramount in today’s digital economy. Understanding industry trends, gaining commercial advantage through technology and providing a seamless electronic guest journey are key.
One of the key challenges when addressing IT within hospitality is finding a commercially viable way of accessing independent advice that is designed to your individual business objectives. In larger organisations they have sufficient budget to employ IT Directors, IT Managers etc. So for the smaller clients and independents, IT can become a jungle. Major challenges are: endless choice of applications, Guest Technology and Managed Services; and lest we forget: the Sales pitches and processes that go with them.
Avenue9 have created a way to demystify IT and bring the thought and function back where it belongs, the hotel. Whilst many of the vendors serving the industry have well crafted products and services, they are focused on their business, not yours.
Through working exclusively within the industry, we are able to enable you to access a service that will work with you to set and perform the IT strategy that meets the demands of your business and guests.
