For the leisure and hospitality industry, flexibility in business is key.
In the wake of the digital era, the leisure and tourism have thrived. Globally, the travel sector expects to grow to $11.4 million. Partly, this is thanks to the industry’s ability to adapt to the digital world.

Furthermore, 70% of travellers use smartphones to complete their travel research. Therefore, having a flexible digital solution for your customers is critical. However, flexible digital solutions can benefit your business in many ways, not just to enhance the front-end experience of your customers.
A Hosted Desktop for Leisure and Tourism
A hosted desktop allows you to access your applications and systems from any device, anywhere you need. With a reliable and secure hosting service, you can enjoy a practical IT solution that allows your staff to work anywhere at any time, using any device that best suits your needs. What’s more, a hosted solution can significantly lower your IT costs too.
Benefits of a Hosted Desktop for Hotels, Travel and Leisure
1. Seasonality and Demand
For many businesses in the leisure industry, there will be periods of peak demands. For this, you may need more staff available at reception or ticket offices to cope with an increased footfall. Often, it will not be practical to have a fixed setup which can be costly too. Instead, a hosted desktop solution allows you to place more staff on movable devices, while still accessing the database and software that they need.
2. Remote Working
For companies that operate from different locations, such as various hotel sites, tourist sites that are part of the same chain, or even different countries for remote workers such as travel representatives a hosted desktop is ideal. A hosted desktop allows everyone to access the same information wherever they are in the world. This means your business can help customers anywhere while enjoying access to the same level of information.
3. Booking Management
For a company that offers tickets and bookings on multiple platforms, there can be challenges such as oversubscribing and double booking. A hosted solution allows everyone to access the same information wherever they are in the world. This can mean your business can help customers everywhere while enjoying access to the same level of information.
