Hotelogix: Aquarius On The Beach, Nadi, Fiji
(A case study on Aquarius On The Beach, Nadi, Fiji)
A Quick Look: The hotel was earlier using an outdated legacy system that was complex and resulted in multiple errors. They faced many problems like losing important data and experiencing system crash. The system also required reloading on a regular basis. The only IT personnel in Fiji to service their software catered to larger hotels, which led to a long waiting period for the hotel. The hotel owner implemented Hotelogix cloud based PMS and saved on a lot of money. There was no fear of losing data and the errors in accounting were eliminated. Moreover, the hotel operations could be accessed from anywhere and at any time.
About Aquarius On The Beach

Background & Pain Points
Previously the hotel used to use an old fashioned Legacy system which was extremely complicated and cumbersome due to which numerous errors were made, some deliberate and some hidden. Since the software was dependent on servers and extra IT infrastructure, the primary PC being used, used to lose data, crash and require reloading on a regular basis. Additional terminals increased the cost of the software.
Support was another issue, in Fiji there was only one IT personnel who could service their software and he also catered to all the larger hotels in the vicinity, so whenever there was a service fault and the hotel needed assistance they needed to wait for a long time.
Also the owner, Mr. Dale Hermanson always was keen to have a cloud–based PMS since he doesn’t reside in Nadi.
