If you’re one of the many hotels or chains out there that is trying to get a new PMS up and running, but you are struggling with two, three, or more months of wait times to go live, then you may want to reconsider your PMS vendor.

A reasonable time to wait to have your hotel up and running is a couple of days, maximum. Depending on your hotel’s set up, this time could be reduced to a couple of hours or less.

And once your hotel is set up with its PMS and all integrations, you and your staff should be able to work with the systems immediately, not wait to coordinate a time for consultants to come and train the team.
