The Canadian Tourism and Hospitality Institute (CTHI)
Mandaluyong, Metropolitan Manila area, Philippines
A Quick Look
Mabeth Quirante, a lecturer at CTHI, was in need of an affordable property management system (PMS) for her students to utilize while studying to become hospitality professionals. Having relied on server-based systems in the past, she decided to seek out a Cloud-based system that requires only an Internet connection to use. She first became interested in Hotelogix after an online search, and then consulted with colleagues who recommended the system. Hotelogix provides CTHI students with a practical and hands-on learning experience to benefit their future careers in the hospitality industry.
CTHI is the first international franchise of the Canadian Tourism College (CTC) based in Vancouver, Canada. Relatively new in the Philippines, CTHI is in its third successful year of hospitality education. The school’s program offers diploma courses in Hospitality and Tourism and short certificate courses in Front Office Operation, Food & Beverage, and Professional Housekeeping.
Previously, Quirante was using a server-based system that was not accessible for students outside of classroom hours. Quirante decided to seek out a simplified PMS, and began researching online for something that would fulfill her requirements of being reasonably priced, easy to use, and able to securely store data. She was also set on finding a Cloud-based system that requires only an Internet connection to use. She found that Hotelogix fulfilled her requirements, and it also came recommended by two other hotels in the metropolitan Manila area. During the implementation process, she found the Hotelogix support team to be very helpful and available whenever needed.
After implementing Hotelogix, Quirante found the system to be very flexible, practical, and well suited for her students’ learning needs. In the past year since CTHI signed on with Hotelogix, 3 different classes each about 3 months in duration have benefited from using the software.
“Hotelogix is a user-friendly PMS. Even in a short period of time, we learned a lot from using the software. We knew in the end how to handle different types of reservations and check in and check out procedures, including how night auditing was done”
