THE BENEFITS OF MANAGED IT SERVICES IN HOSPITALITY
In the hospitality industry, customer service is everything. Your IT ecosystem must support a seamless and immersive guest experience. Reliable hospitality IT services provide a backbone to build customer loyalty and a solid reputation. In a crowded industry, reputation is everything. You need the right tech solutions on your side.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution for your tech infrastructure, try our managed hospitality IT services. You outsource your entire IT department to us so we can take care of your technology while you improve the customer experience you offer. We ensure your networks are secure and operational, your communications clear and your costs down.
Let’s look at some of the big benefits of using a hospitality IT managed service provider:
Value for money is essential in the hospitality industry. Managed IT services are the best way to ensure your technology and communications are effectively worked into your budget without compromising on quality. They’re subscription-based, so there won’t be any bill shock at the end of the month either.
If your hospitality business grows, you want an IT system that’ll grow with you. Managed Services are fully scalable, with the ability to easily add subscribers if your team expands. There’s no need to purchase expensive hardware that you may not need down the track. You focus on growing your hospitality business and we’ll be here to take care of your IT needs, no matter how big they are.
Smile IT won’t lock your business into a contract. As a hospitality IT managed service provider, we like our clients to enjoy the flexibility to use our services as and when they need them. We don’t want you to pay for services you don’t use, so you can downscale or case to use our subscription-based model when it suits you.
Flawless communication systems are essential to run a smooth operation. Whether you need a phone system upgrade or to move to business-grade internet, Smile IT will advise a path forward that complements your company goals and fits in with your budget.
Smile IT will ensure your IT ecosystem leverages the latest and best technology to support your hospitality business. It’s all about taking advantage of the opportunities out there, and using technology to solve problems and improve efficiency. With us as your managed IT services partner, your tech will work for you.
We’re based in Brisbane and cater to hospitality providers across Australia. When you pick up the phone to contact us, you’re speaking to an IT expert with local knowledge and a deep understanding of your industry. Our services are designed to reduce your stresses rather than add to them, and having these powerful insights into the context of your business allows us to do that.

Hospitality IT Cybersecurity
You can give your guests the most memorable and exquisite stay at your hotel or lodge. The most sensational restaurant meal. The perfect cup of coffee with friends.
All will be forgotten though if your IT system gets hacked and their personal data is compromised. If guests realise you don’t have the necessary cybersecurity measures to keep their data safe, their goodwill towards your establishment will disappear. Your reputation takes a hit. In an industry that offers plenty of choices, reputation is important.
Having strong cybersecurity in place may seem overwhelming, but it’s essential. When Smile IT takes charge of your tech infrastructure, your data is in safe hands. Not only do we install strong defences, we have 24/7 security monitoring systems to help prevent breaches before they happen. We’ll also implement a robust backup and recovery system in case of a cyber incident.
Strong cybersecurity should be an integral part of your IT governance. It helps keep your data safe, ensure legal compliance and maintain a rock-solid reputation. Ask us below if you have any questions.
