Why Online Reservation Management is Better than your Desktop Software?

We speak with dozens of innkeepers and small hostel and hotel owners each year.  Many of them have built or adapted homegrown software solutions for their reservation or client management.  Most of these solutions consist of desktop software.  These innkeepers and managers are mostly proud of their solutions, and boast that they don’t have ongoing costs or commissions.

But, the reality is that these desktop software solutions have a limited life.  How can MS Access have a limited life they ask?  It’s not that the MS Access brand has a limited life, it’s that your particular version of MS Access has a limited life. For example, I personally used MS Office 2003 up until about 2008, then upgraded to Office 2007 (not an insignificant cost). I think Office 2007 is an outstanding product, but unfortunately it’s already obsolete, and I’ll need to upgrde soon. Why upgrade software that is running perfectly? Because my desktop will soon need to be replaced (desktops and latops last no more than about 5-6 years on average). If I need to replace my current desktop, which runs Windows XP, I’ll need to purchase upgrades to most of my software since Windows XP has been replaced by Windows 7 on all new computers, and it won’t run my old software.

The moral of the story is that software purchased for desktop use in a busines environment always needs to be upgraded periodically (costly), and if not the software, then the hardware, which will force a replacement of the software. Online solutions don’t have this problem since you always benefit immediately from constant software upgrades (unless you have selected a service that charges maintenance fees, and most do not). This is not to mention the problem with backups. Many users say they maintain backups, but have you ever had to restore a backup of deskop software when a computer crashed? Not a very pleasant task.

Online solutions today eliminate all of the problems associated with the above. And if you still believe that online reservation systems always have a high cost or commission, I encourage you to read this article:
