Information, Technology and Tourism

Introduction

Information technology has influenced all walks of our lives over the last few decades in a tremendous manner with the Tourism and Travel sector being one of the chief beneficiaries. The introduction of computers can be traced back to the early 60’s when the vacuum tube was the primary component of computer systems. This was largely inefficient and error prone and soon gave way to transistors which were replaced by Integrated Circuits. Now the technological advances have allowed advanced graphics integrated with moving images and sound to be incorporated into the modern computers.

The Tourism product being largely intangible stands to gain a lot from technology. Travel was considered a risk in the early days mainly due to the fact that the knowledge about the terrain, climate, culture etc of the destination was limited or unknown. Only the adventurous and men in quest for newer pastures ventured into such journeys. With the advent of IT into the travel sector, things have changed. Travel has become much more enjoyable and comfortable.

The modern day traveller has a plethora of options to choose from, with Internet being the favourite haunt for the potential traveller. Places of tourist interest and scenic beauty often do not catch the attention of the customer largely due to the fact that they are not marketed well. Internet in the early days did not support graphics, video, sound etc. Hence the tourism products could not be marketed over the net effectively. Now things have drastically changed with the introduction of protocols like the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). This has led to easier transmission of graphical images, music, videos etc over the net with speed and clarity. Thus tourism has been effectively marketed over the Internet. This has led to the mushrooming of Tourism and Travel sites.

There are number of software which cater to the needs of the tourism and hospitality sectors. Travel agencies, tour operators, hotels etc use modern systems equipped with powerful applications that work on huge databases. Computerised front office has lent elegance to the modern offices which are largely paperless. Office automation has led to efficient and accurate information processing. A person armed with the right information is the most powerful in the modern era. Computerised systems are used to extract information out of the voluminous quantities of data store in databases. Querying a database, be it for reservation enquiry or booking a ticket is in the hands of the end user. The customer is the king and rightly so has a number of options to choose from when embarking on a journey or getting information about a tourist spot.

Earlier users of computer systems were required to be experts. Even starting up the system required a computer operator. Only then the application could be run. Now systems with Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) technologies, even a layman or a child is able to operate a computer or access internet. A person who doesn’t know the local language at a place has information at his finger tips with the advent of touch screen facilities. Almost all banks have now introduced ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) facilities at their premises so as to allow the customers to access their accounts any time of the day.

In the Kerala scenario the advent of IT has been restricted to travel agencies using reservation systems and development of websites by Governmental and non-Governmental agencies. Also office automation is in place in with the accounting process also being computerized. The official website of Kerala Tourism has won many national and international accolades as being one of the best sites in tourism worldwide. In the education sector institutes such as the Kerala Institute of Tourism and Travel Studies (KITTS) has imparted IT education in Tourism sector by giving hands on training to students in GDSs (Global Distribution Systems) and computerized applications. Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) has also fully computerized their reservations and a tourist can easily book a room through the net. Hotels have linked their systems to other global systems so as to establish a link worldwide. Let us examine in brief the application for tourism.

Global Distribution Systems

Global Distribution Systems (GDS) have evolved over the years and has played a major role in making online travel possible. A Computer Reservation System (CRS) is used to store and retrieve information and conduct transactions related to travel. They were originally developed by airlines, but it was later extended to travel agents as a sales channel. A functionality of CRS has been extended and what is known as the Global Distribution Systems came into existence. The major CRS operations that book and sell tickets to multiple airlines are known as GDS. Many airlines have opted to divest most of their holdings to Global Distribution Systems due to which many systems are now accessible to consumers through Internet gateways for hotels, car rental agencies, and other services as well as airline tickets. A traveller or a travel agent can chalk out an itinerary using a GDS which is a global system interconnecting airlines, hotels, travel agents, car rental companies, cruise liners etc. The four major Global Distribution Systems are AMADEUS, GALILEO, SABRE and WORLDSPAN. AMADEUS boasts of a market share of 31% and is followed by SABRE with 30% of the market, GALILEO with 26% and WORLDSPAN which has captured 12% of the market.

Today’s GDS systems have the following capabilities

  • Available and accessible 99.9% of the time
  • Process up to 17,000 messages per second during peak time
  • Operates on cutting edge enterprise systems architecture
  • Enjoys response times of a fraction of a second
  • Is capable of booking a multitude of transactions
  • Can make itinerary changes up to the last minute and complete complex international routings to every country in the world
  • Automates the time consuming and complex process of re-pricing airline tickets when itineraries change
  • Permits customers to send e-mail and faxes without exiting from the system
  • Allows customers to compare fares and availability in order to shop for the most convenient travel at the lowest cost
  • Stores all data related to the tens of millions of travellers securely so that the customers receive the travel preferences they desire

On a given day a GDS can access

  • Over a billion fare combinations
  • More than 95% of the available seats worldwide
  • More than 750 airlines
  • More than 50,000 hotel properties
  • Over 400 tour operators
  • Nearly 30,000 car rental locations

GDS systems are capable of booking

  • One way and roundtrip airline seats
  • Hotel rooms
  • Rental cars
  • Tours
  • Cruises
  • Bus and rail tickets
  • Insurance
  • Limousines
  • Event and theatre attractions
  • Dining Reservations
  • Itinerary Changes
  • Complex international routings

E-Ticketing

An electronic ticket or e-ticket is a means by which a passenger or a group of passengers can ensure their seat in a commercial airline by booking over the internet. This greatly reduces the procedures associated with issusing a paper ticket, which consists of a number of copies. Both the airlines and the passenger are benefited by this form of ticketing. An image of the ticket is stored in the computer from which the customer can take a print out and board the plane directly if he or she is carrying no luggage. If there is luggage after obtaining the clearance the passenger can board the aircraft. The customer can request that a hardcopy confirmation be sent by postal mail, but it is not needed at the check-in desk. A confirmation number is assigned to the passenger, along with the flight number, date, departure location, and destination location. When checking in at the airport, the passenger simply presents positive identification. Then necessary boarding passes are issued, and the passenger can check luggage and proceed through security to the gate area.

The main advantage of e-ticketing is the fact that it reduces booking expense by eliminating the need for printing and mailing paper documents. Another advantage is that it eliminates the possibility of critical documents getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong address. It is estimated that globally about 25% of the passengers book their tickets online which has resulted in the booming of low cost fliers.

The Internet has provided a new economic environment to conduct business. E-commerce is a growing sector and many tourism businesses are involved in developing their internet services including traditional travel agents, tour operators, national tourist offices, airlines, hotels and other accommodation providers and car hire firms. This means of doing business is known as ‘e-tourism’, or ‘tourism e-business’. The key differences from traditional markets are the speed at which information can be communicated, global accessibility and the minimal costs of establishing a business online.

Property Management Systems

As the term indicates, property management systems refer to systems which have been used world wide to manage and effectively control the various day to day and other procedures related to managing large properties. Even in Kerala, these systems are used in large scale.

The core functions which a PMS can handle are reservations, front office operations, some back office operations and some managerial functions. A PMS is commonly used for handling the accounting functions of the various departments in a Hotel. This is in addition to being the hub for all interconnectivity with other systems in the hotel. Just as a person, who is cut off from the rest of his colleagues during work a standalone computer is not of much use. Hence a networked environment is provided whereby a server can cater to the needs of the end-user who may be a manager to receptionist or a waiter. This is achieved by networking the systems and sharing of resources. Software may be developed to suit the needs of the hotel which may have a front end and a back end. A front end is user interface, through which data may be entered or information retrieved. The back end may consist of a RDBMS which acts as the storage hub. Queries and reports may be used to retrieve information. For example, if a guest wants to know details regarding tariffs during off season, a click of the mouse may be sufficient to retrieve information.

Virtual Reality Systems

Virtual reality is a relatively new area which is related to artificial intelligence and neural networks. Artificial intelligence is an area where technology has made rapid strides in recent years. Human beings have been blessed with intelligence which ranges from their ability to remember things to inventing gadgets and making life more meaningful. It goes without saying that human brain is an amazing and intricate organ which has till date not been surpassed by even the fastest super computer. It is doubtful if such thing will happen in future too. But artificial intelligence has paved pathways to new gadgets and robots which help man in potentially dangerous and intricate tasks.

Tourism has in addition to the natural attractions, theme parks, man made rides, simulations etc. Singapore, Disneyland etc house some of most fabulous man made wonders thanks to IT and its applications. Particularly theme parks and rides along with recreation of fantasies and dinosaurs have added mileage to tourist destinations.

Virtual Travel

With the ever increasing need to use the net, Tourism has entered a new era. app virtual travel has gained popularity and a tourist if he wishes can use the various tools and internet and sit at the comfort of his office or home and do a virtual travel. Earlier there used to armchair travelogue creators who used to design the show from articles and hearsays. But now travel writing has been simplified just because there is a plethora of information in CD’s, brochures and on the net.

There are even virtual travel agencies on the net which offers a tour through its gallery and offers a great deal of information. Gone are the days when a guide used to take travelers for ride narrating several cock and bull stories and feeding the customers with false information. Virtual travellers are more informed and many of them do not even need an introduction to a destination which they plan to visit.

In addition to the virtual tour of the real world, artificially created virtual worlds are there, waiting to be explored. These sites offer a free package for a week which can be downloaded. After going through this demo, the user can see the real stuff, if he registers online and pays for it. This is a trend which is fast catching on. After all globalization has shrunk the world and it wouldn’t be long time before new destinations in the cyber world comes up.

Travel Recommender Systems

Travel has become a part and parcel in the lives of human beings. Efforts from travel agencies and tour operators coupled with inputs from Governmental organizations have resulted in great changes which have eased the hardships placed on the traveller. The modern day traveller has a plethora of options to choose from when planning his trip. Travel Recommender Systems though in its infancy has established its utility value in travel planning. In the coming years, its importance as tool in aiding travel planning will be indispensable. A few recommender systems are available in the market that give the tour operator or the customer options to remove the intangibility associated with the product. Austria is one of the few countries which have introduced Recommender Systems to the travelling public and have found favourable response from the users. Recommending a travel plan consists of many aspects such as the destination type, location specific information, seasonal specific recommendations etc. All this has to be presented to the user in a customer friendly manner so that he or she can input the options to the system which in turn will suggest the most recommended travel plan. These systems use artificial intelligence and fall under the category of expert systems.

Geographic Information Systems

The usage of maps dates back to centuries. Man has been using maps for guidance and for locating places. With the advancement of computer technology and graphics, maps have been digitised and used for providing accurate and timely information to users. Databases have been combined with computer graphics in the area of GIS.

GIS is used to display and analyse spatial data which are linked to databases. This connection between spatial data and databases is the driving force behind the working of a GIS. Maps can be drawn from the database and data can be referenced from the maps. When the database is updated, the associated map also gets updated. GIS database include a wide variety of information including geographic, social, political, environmental and demographic data. GIS technology is a computer based data collection, storage and analysis tool that combines previously unrelated information into easily understood maps. A GIS can perform complicated analytical functions and present the results visually as maps, tables or graphs, allowing decision-makers to visually see the issues before them and then select the best course of action.

GIS finds wide applications in Tourism especially in mapping Tourist destinations, hotels etc. The end user can pin point a destination and even browse the hotel room in which he or she plans to stay.

Conclusion

On the whole it can be said that Information technology has left an indelible mark in the application area of Tourism and Travel. In the coming years, areas like Travel Recommender Systems, GIS, Space Tourism etc will gain popularity and will help in giving a new dimension to the travel and tourism sector. Kerala Tourism which has established its presence in the global market will bank on these applications to further propel its growth trajectory. The International market which is growing has been given a shot in the arm with introduction of IT and will stand to gain further from it.

10 Hotel Housekeeping Tips and Tricks

Published

By

Housekeeping

Creating the ideal experience for tourists and consumers is critical in the hospitality sector. Only one or two negative online reviews can be the death nail for a company, and for better or worse, business owners must be aware of this risk. Top-notch housekeeping procedures must be part of the plan for creating the ideal hotel experience for your guests. This not only ensures that your hotel visitors have a clean room, but it can also extend the life of your hotel’s furnishings and fixtures.

Cleaning isn’t as simple as changing a bedding and picking up dirty towels while preparing for seasoned tourists. There are specific methods that a hospitality cleaning service should implement to ensure that cleanliness requirements are met and that customers are satisfied.

From guests who turn the room inside out to visitors who decide to host a party, there’s no telling what you’ll walk into as you flip the handle. Keep the following tips in mind while cleaning a hotel room.

Keep Your Cleaning Stock Ready

Restock all supplies as needed in addition to cleaning the hotel room. Toiletries, laundry bags, menus, snacks, pens, notebooks, and robes are just a few examples. Since your guests will be looking for these products, it is preferable to have them available rather than having to request them. Also, make sure the ice bucket, glassware, mugs, and other coffee/tea supplies are clean and refilled as needed. Visit Dzeeusa Online to get everything at one place.

The Linens Should Be Removed

Remove all linens from the bed and inspect the mattress, mattress pad, bed frame, and other components for any stains or flaws.

Clear The Trash

After you’ve removed all of the linens from the bed, go through the room and clean up any trash that has accumulated. Look inside drawers, around the bed frame, in corners, on windowsills, and even behind dressers to see whether trash is hiding. Then gather any worn robes and slippers, as well as mugs, glasses, room service trays, and so on.

Dust it Down

Dusting is required since even a small bit of dust will stick out, especially to detail-oriented visitors, and give the impression that the entire area isn’t as clean as it should be. Make sure to wipe dust off lampshades, artwork, and window sills from the top to the lowest surfaces.

Pay Attention to Surfaces

After that, you’ll want to clean all of the hard surfaces. This includes the remote control, telephone, door knobs, light switches, and other high-traffic objects in the hotel room. This is a procedure that not all hotels take, but it is crucial to maintaining cleanliness. Picture frames, lamp bases, drawer interiors and exteriors, and even the mini-fridge door and handle should all be cleaned.

Make the Bed

Make the bed after dusting the room. Starting with the mattress pad, make sure to smooth out every element of the bed. Everything from the cushions to the linens to the bedspread should be replaced so that your guests have a clean and pleasant stay.

Prioritize Bathroom Cleaning

The bathroom is an area that must be kept spotless at all times. From the toilet to the tub/shower to the sink, you want to clean and disinfect every element of the bathroom. Also, make sure to replace linens, bathmats, and robes, as well as clean the hairdryer, including the lint trap if necessary. This is the time to be as meticulous as possible, because an unclean bathroom will leave an unfavorable impression on a visitor right away.

After you’ve finished all of the procedures above, take one last stroll around the room to double-check that everything is in order and that your hotel’s requirements are met.

RV Trip

If you’re new to the RV lifestyle, trying to figure out what to pack on a first trip can feel overwhelming. The great news is that there are no real wrong answers. What you forget, you can pick up along the way. However, for a list of things you’ll want to consider packing for that first road trip adventure, read on.

A Solid Packing List

The first step in packing well for an RV trip is to pull out a notebook and start a packing list. From your favorite pair of girlfriend jeans and socks to a comfortable hoodie and raincoat, it’s a good idea to begin with a list of obvious items you’ll want for your trip. After packing these essential articles of clothing, take a step back and assess how you’ll wear these items. While it’s okay to bring duplicates, it’s important to remember that your space will be limited.

Think about the length of your trip and your final destination. Most RV parks, for example, have laundry facilities. If you know you’ll have amenities that mean the ability to get your clothes clean, you won’t need to pack as heavy. At the same time, packing with an eye toward layering is a great idea because it’s likely you’ll spend a lot of time at Mother Nature’s mercy. When in doubt, pack clothes in the same hues and colors so that you can easily swap them out as weather conditions change.

When making your packing list, be sure to include technology, indoor games and entertainment for rainy days, food, plenty of water, and a camera.

A Final Destination

Regardless of if you’ll be staying at a premier RV park or finding a free spot along the way, it’s a good idea to bring a plan with you for your first trip. No matter how close you intend to stick to it, a general idea of your final destination will add up to less stress and anxiety during your experience. While the RV lifestyle is enjoyed by many, problems can happen on the road, and having a general plan is a good way to prevent unnecessary aggravations. Making reservations ahead, having backup plans, and letting loved ones know where you’ll be traveling is smart. Do your research ahead. Soon enough, you’ll be traveling more experienced and won’t be as dependent on a bigger plan.

An Open Mind

If you’re dreaming of hitting the road to travel to a unique destination, see family, or just satisfy wanderlust, odds are that you already have an adventurous spirit. While this spirit will make your adventure great, it’s important to bring with you an open mind. That is, the road has many twists and turns. Especially in the middle of a global pandemic, there are bound to be minor changes along your journey. Instead of being fixed on one plan or experience, bringing an open mind will be important for a successful first RV trip. For example, you may have certain ideas about what it’s like to sleep in an RV park or how it is to wake up on a beach. Instead of focusing on specific moments, try to be open to whatever comes your way. You might be surprised to find your best memories are the ones that happened spontaneously.

At the end of the day, preparing well for your first RV trip comes down to great planning and a willingness to take things as they come. Even if you pack the perfect items, you’re bound to come across a few surprises on the road. Going into your travels with an open mind and willingness to try new things is the best way to have an adventure of a lifetime. Travel safely!

Tips for renting out apartments for rent in Abu Dhabi

Published

on

apartments

One of the main reasons for apartments for rent in Abu Dhabi is that foreigners worldwide regard the process as transparent and straightforward. All documentation is designed so that it is easy and straightforward to understand even a nonprofessional person. Government authorities control every transaction. A large number of significant real estate developer companies also indicate their reliability. Immobilien is very diverse, and the number is growing steadily. Most buildings are under five and stand out from the rest of Abu Dhabi’s older buildings.

Apartment benefits:

1. Return 

Investment returns are also an essential factor. This is an excellent indicator because not every bank in the world can boast that its depositors have such a share of income. At the same time, you gain two times by apartments for rent in Abu Dhabi. Firstly, the potential revenue for rent, and secondly, the property’s value is increasing year by year. Many see real estate in Abu Dhabi as a two-way investment: you can get rental income for several years, and then you can sell the object profitably.

2. Flexible.

For their flexibility, some renters prefer the property to rent Abu Dhabi whether working, travelling or just a slicker apartment on the street. For example, a Dubai short term rental will enable you to see a job outside your natural “commuting” zone if you are looking for work. Or, if you need to move to another city for a temporary assignment, a short term Dubai rental will give you additional mobility. Moreover, if you move to a new town and want to take your time to the area in the best place to settle, a short-term Dubai rental would give you the opportunity to hang up in town while you live in it.

3. Ready for space living.

In Dubai, property to rent Abu Dhabi is usually fully equipped and ready to live, from kitchenware and tableware to material and bath sheets.

4. For your money, you get a lot more.

A short-term rental in Dubai usually features an equipped kitchen to save on food at restaurants: great for individuals and families.

5. Cost. 

For renters, short-term rentals in Dubai can have minor inconveniences. For one, property buyers tend to sell more for a short-term rental, including cleaning and rental furniture costs. This will not only cost you in the short term but also long term if you continue to renew the short-term rental for a more extended period. Furthermore, rent increases and changes in terms of the lease are always possible more frequently than in a long-term contract.

Conclusion:  There are two options for long-term or short-term accommodation in Abu Dhabi. In the ABU DHABI, anything in the short term is less than one year (with renewal options) and in a long time is more than one year. In addition, unlike in other countries, short-term rentals via the Department of Tourism and Trade Marketing are fully regulated. Short and long-term opportunities are essential for a healthy property market and short-term rent growth in Abu Dhabi in recent years. Hence, when you are looking forward to rent an apartment in Abu Dhabi, then it is always a good decision to get in touch with an expert and experienced company which has a proper idea about the same.
