Hotelogix partners with SIMS Technologies as their Channel Partner for reselling their cloud based system to the hospitality industry in Ghana.
Hotelogix is a Property Management System (PMS) and Online Distribution System used by small and mid-sized hotels in over 70 countries across the globe today. SIMS Technologies specializes in the implementation and configuration of third party software for hotels and other businesses.
An Ernst & Young report of global hospitality insights for 2014 states that Ghana ranked third in hotel development in sub-Saharan Africa in 2013. With more than 1,400 hotel rooms under development, the small and mid-sized hospitality segment will get a major boost in the coming days. Many new hotels are slated to start in the country and there is an immediate need for small and mid-sized hotels to efficiently manage their operations and distribute room inventory online. The small and mid-sized properties in Ghana do not have access to an easy-to-use distribution and property management system currently.
Research reports indicate high penetration of internet in Ghana. More than 40% of Ghanaians depend on the internet as a means of gathering information on products and services. Most Ghanaians now prefer booking hotels online and with increase in international tourism, the local hotels are gearing up to tap this revenue opportunity.
Mr. Samuel Anim-Yeboah, Managing Director, SIMS Technologies says, “Most of the hotels in Ghana are small and mid-sized properties and for them, Hotelogix is the perfect option as a low cost and user-friendly PMS. I expect the hospitality industry in the country to be extremely responsive to Hotelogix.”
SIMS Technologies is the ideal partner for Hotelogix to launch their cloud-based property management and distribution system in Ghana. “We are up-to-speed with the latest in technology and can help hoteliers quickly adopt Hotelogix,” says Samuel.
Aditya Sanghi, CEO and Co-founder of Hotelogix says, “Over the last few years we have seen very favorable response and adoption of Hotelogix by small and medium hotels in West Africa and this partnership with SIMS Technologies will ensure that properties in Ghana have direct access to premium PMS and distribution system. A cloud PMS will open new opportunities for small hoteliers and enable them to compete globally.”
