Holiday Inn Resort, Goa Leverages IDS NEXT Technology Audit

Bangalore, Karnataka, India, Thursday, November 24, 2011 — (Business Wire India) — IDS NEXT, global leader in providing ERP and total technology solutions for the hospitality and leisure industries and Holiday Inn Resort, Goa, part of the reputed chain of Holiday Inn hotels by the InterContinental Hotels Group today announced the successful implementation of IDS NEXT’s Technology Audit. This audit enabled Holiday Inn Resort, Goa to optimize use of its IT infrastructure and increase efficiency within the property.

Holiday Inn Resort, Goa has been associated with IDS NEXT for over a decade. Utilization of technology is a key business enabler that facilitates the management of both guests and employees and Holiday Inn Resort, Goa currently utilizes IDS Enterprise 4.1, a robust, high quality hotel ERP to power operations. The hotel ERP solution automates operations and enables access to data for business intelligence. The Technology Audit implemented by IDS NEXT helped Holiday Inn Resort, Goa increase efficiency of resources and identify redundancies in activities.

“We were not leveraging IDS Enterprise 4.1 to the maximum. IDS NEXT’s Technology Audit helped us to identify areas of improvement that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.” said Loretta Vaz, Director, Business Development, Holiday Inn Resort Goa.

The latest in IDS NEXTs series of offerings, the Technology Audit conducted by IDS Networks Group involved a detailed evaluation of the hotel’s existing IT infrastructure and its usage. The audit has three aspects namely, analysis of asset utilization, analysis of processes, policies and procedure and IT expense assessment. A thorough analysis of software, hardware and networks within the hotel property is followed by a post-audit strategy that provides counsel and implementation of upgrades where necessary.

“As part of the technology audit, IDS NEXT trained the staff at Holiday Inn Resort, Goa to use every single module of IDS Enterprise. Through demonstrations, staff were introduced to automated billing which was critical to plug revenue leaks. As a result, the Resort began to focus more on core competencies than on miniscule operational worries.” said Solomon James, Vice President, IDS Networks Group.
