Managed Hotel to Franchise Hotel Conversions from Cardonet IT Services

Managed to Franchise Conversions

With most of the major international hotel groups divesting their property portfolios, the opportunity to convert a managed hotel into a franchised hotel is greater than ever. Like any franchise agreement, you will need to make the necessary changes and investments to ensure that your hotel is up to the standard that both the brand and your guests expect.

Part of that is in the fixtures, furnishings and the like. Another part is the IT systems and IT platform. You may be able to continue to use some of the infrastructure, but you will most likely have to invest further and migrate systems away from the brand, potentially without impacting your normal hotel operations.

When taking over a managed hotel, it is a good idea to work closely with the brand and other stakeholders on an agreed transition plan. Such a plan would include what systems need to be improved and what it needed to get the new franchised hotel trading with the brand flag flying high.

On the day of transfer, you will have to be able to migrate systems away from the brand, while at the same time ensuring that your new systems interface as required with core brand systems.

You will also take over responsibility for all the hotel technology and will need to ensure that your users are supported 24x7 so that they can effectively look after your guests, protecting your revenue and your reputation.

Our team have a great deal of experience working with multiple brands on the conversion of managed hotels into franchise hotels. We will be able to ensure a seamless transition of service.

Managed Hotel to Franchise Hotel Conversion Benefits

You are able to access 'ready made' systems and expertise that should make trading easier. At the same time, however, you will be responsible for local IT services and support.

You reduce your risk of failure, enjoy an established market share and can enjoy brand support.

Like all franchises, by taking on a hotel franchise, you known that your new business is based on a proven model and more often than not you can examine the trading records. You also get access to training and ongoing support to ensure that you are running your hotel as best you can. Obviously all this comes at a cost, but your risks are reduced.

It is easier to get financing for a franchised hotel.

With the reduced risk, you will find that it is easier to get financing for a hotel that is franchised as they are considered to be safer and more profitable because many people actively look to stay in a branded hotel that they trust.
