Central Hotel Bonaire
Central Hotel Bonaire nestled in the downtown of Kralendijk in the Dutch Caribbean, opened in 2010is a modern boutique hotel with 20 stylish rooms. Central Hotel Bonaire provides facilities as A/C, satellite TV, free internet access and most of rooms feature a Queen bed. A cloud based system that suits the business needs of the small and mid-sized hotels is what exactly the hotel looked for.
“We installed the system for a brand new hotel and there was no transition. Existing Property Management Systems are not suitable for the real small hotels and mostly too expensive for the midsize hotels! The system does everything that is needed”, says BoudewijnScholts, consultant for the hospitality industry in the Caribbean.
Scholts was scouring for a solution that would fulfill all the demands of small and midsize hotels. However, he found most of the existing software’s expensive, requiring significant investments in the IT infrastructure and training. This was not suitable for the profile of Bonaire. From the leading hospitality software that he experienced, he found Hotelogix as the suitable and only solution that is easy to use, easy to implement and extremely cost effective.
“Existing Property Management Systems are not suitable for the real small hotels and mostly too expensive for the midsize hotels,” says Scholts.
It was important for the solution to be user friendly and easy to implement. Hotelogix is based on ‘cloud’ technology and it runs on a browser. All of its features are integrated into a single web-based system eliminating the need for and the cost of implementing additional hardware or software. “It is true, that most of the top hospitality solutions offer the help together with product but with Hotelogix we have the manuals, Demo Videos and live help accessible for 24 hours. Moreover the system is upgrading continually which is the big advantage,” says Scholts.

BoudewijnScholts remarks, “With Hotelogix we saved on Manpower, IT infrastructure, Support and Maintenance! I hope this will be the start of many more installation. Hotelogix is very attractive solution for small and mid-size hotels, indeed!”
