Background & Pain Points
The Cangkringan Jogja Villas & Spa implemented the Hotelogix PMS in August 2013. Prior to this the hotel was using a legacy based PMS for managing the hotel.
The boutique hotel realized that a legacy PMS was not suitable for them because of the prohibitive costs. They wanted a system that could be implemented without the high investments in IT infrastructure and regular maintenance costs. The hotel felt a cloud based system would be a better fit for their needs since there would be no extra implementation costs, plus they would not require dedicated IT staff to monitor their IT infrastructure since all updates, system upgrades and everything else would be taken care of automatically.
Can be accessible anytime and from anywhere, only an internet connection is required
No need for any IT staff to maintain the servers, maintenance is done online
Cost effective especially compared to an offline legacy model

Ruby M. Aries, Operation Director, The Cangkringan Jogja Villas & Spa
We used pen, paper and Excel to run the business. We were drawn to Hotelogix because of its cloud based capabilities and simplicity. We are more organized now - the ability to have several users on multiple computers with FrontDesk active really makes a difference. The direct channel manager connection has really simplified the process for us.
