IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Hospitality Property Management Systems 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study examines the key strategies and capabilities that hospitality property management system vendors are offering to the worldwide enterprise hospitality market. The study evaluates and examines the strength of vendors as innovation and efficiency partners as well as capabilities in integration and partnerships, user experience, innovation, data reporting and analytics, guest engagement, flexibility, and scalability.
"The hospitality property management system space is rapidly evolving as legacy systems move to the cloud and must adapt to a complex hospitality technology ecosystem. The pressures put on front desk staff require systems that are faster and more intuitive and insightful than ever. This has put a laser focus on the PMS, and technology partners are recognizing that the PMS must be flexible and open in order to offer solutions for hotels across segments and market sizes as the market shifts to seek platform solutions," says Dorothy Creamer, research manager, Hospitality and Travel Digital Transformation Strategies at IDC. "This research uses a comprehensive set of criteria to evaluate PMS vendors that are offering solutions to the global hospitality market. With heightened demand and expectations of guests coupled with strained labor conditions, hospitality operators must evaluate PMS partners on what capabilities they can quickly roll out and iterate to help companies sustain and grow business in the years ahead as digital demands increase."
