Now that we live in the digital era, it goes without saying that we are immersed in and surrounded by modern marvels like digitalization and technological advancement. This is an entirely new frontier in life in which we are more interconnected than ever before. Quite literally every aspect of life as we know it and every thriving industry has found itself in the position of realigning with the way that the world is moving. We have driven ourselves to this point, and we are now beyond the point of return. We have become so digitally and technologically inclined that we are not only more inclined towards these ideals, but also more reliant on them. Even (and especially) the hotel industry has been significantly impacted – and continues to be so – by technological advancement and enhancement. As one of the most important industries in the world, this ought to come as no surprise. Take the advancements of IoT (i.e. Internet of Things) and their impact on the hotel industry, for example.
Today, smart IoT technology is revolutionizing the hotel industry from the ground up. It has only been in recent years that smart IoT technology has really kicked into high gear, positively revolutionizing the global hotel industry from the ground up in the process. Whether it is the smart thermostats and energy management system found in hotels’ operational systems, or the wireless control of hotel rooms via IoT itself, the point is always the same: smart IoT technology is changing the game in all the best ways. It is easy to state this, but it is quite another point to back it up with evidence as to why this is the case. There are several reasons that smart IoT technology is changing the hotel industry for the better. Each of these reasons are worth their weight in gold and are important in their own right, but at the end of the day, the most important underlying reasons are the ones that make the most impact on the hotel industry – and the general world around it, for that matter.
As far as technological advancements go, IoT is well and truly one of the most significant and highly efficient of them all. While it has yet to do so, it is not at all unlikely that IoT will one day shift into place as the replacing operational technology for the worldwide web. A byproduct of the internet in many ways, smart IoT technology works its magic by effectively nurturing the hotel industry operational processes and systems to function and thrive at their highest objective notion. Take the cost-efficiency of smart IoT technology, for instance. The cost-effectiveness of introducing smart IoT technology into a hotel’s landscape cannot be and should never be underestimated. This is a branch of smart technology that is designed and intended to function and thrive on the basis of limiting energy consumption while maximizing efficiency across the board and around the hotel’s property. When up to 60% of a hotel’s cost of running comes down to basic operations, the introduction and ongoing advancement of a technology like smart IoT technology can and does make all the difference in the world.
And then there is the resale value that incorporating IoT into a hotel’s operational landscape has. Successfully incorporating smart IoT technology into a hotel’s internal and external processes and systems is all about investing in the hotel not just in the immediate sense, but in a long-lasting sense. This of course comes into effect in many ways, but also in the event that the hotel in question is sold later down the road. Resale value goes up significantly when smart IoT technology is introduced into the framework of a hotel’s infrastructure. The digital era is well and truly here, and it is going from strength to strength all the time. Every aspect of life as we know it and every thriving industry that exists today has been fundamentally impacted from modern marvels like digitalization and technological advancement.
In the hotel industry specifically, technologies like smart IoT technology have been working their magic by essentially revolutionizing the hotel industry from the ground up tenfold. It has been a work in progress – and continues to be so today – however it continues to flourish and thrive more and more all the time. Smart IoT technology in the hotel industry is specifically geared towards drastically improving operational cost efficiency, sustainability, and resale value. At the end of the day, there is no getting around the fact: smart IoT technology is changing the hotel industry for the better. There is a lot more where all this advancement and innovation came from. The future of convenience, efficiency, security, and sustainability in the hotel industry is here.
