Top cloud computing benefits for resorts

Moving your IT to the cloud has a number of benefits – many that are not immediately obvious but which are actually very important.

Here is our shortlist:

Cloud computing is energy efficient so if this is an important issue for your resort business, it is something that your IT department can contribute to.

Companies in emerging markets are currently some of the hungriest when it comes to technology solutions. With limited access to advanced infrastructure, accessing data centres and off-premise IT services means resort businesses in the most remote locations can enjoy Merlin’s technological advances.

For new resorts, the cloud allows them to get up and running with key business tools, a minimum of fuss and cost while allowing them to focus on their new business.

As Merlin is totally scalable, these companies can quickly and easily scale up as their business grows. This helps keep the resort flexible and stop it being bogged down in long term budgeting and licensing headaches.
