Written by Thu 24 Jun 2021

RMS Cloud, a leader in property management system (PMS) software, announced the opening of a data centre in China.

This facility expands the RMS Cloud global footprint, while at the same time ensuring compliance with Chinese data governance regulations.

Headquartered in Australia, the company has been focused on expanding its presence throughout Asia, adding enhancements to help customers manage translation, legal, and corporate tax requirements in the region.

Peter Buttigieg, Founder and CEO of RMS Cloud noted that the new data centre will help support customer compliance needs, saying, “Launching this data centre in China will seamlessly enable our clients to adhere to the strict legislation and local data requirements, as well as strengthen our presence in the Chinese accommodation space.”

RMS provides solutions for businesses in the hospitality industry, including online booking, channel management, and front-office systems. This includes customers in hotel, motel, and holiday park arenas. They also offer speciality applications to serve clients in mining, defence, and retail facility management.

Recently, RMS Cloud released a 2021 State of the Industry Report, offering insights into trends in the hospitality industry.  Their findings included a 40% year-over-year increase in travel, with a majority (53%) stating a preference to travel within driving distance of their home or fly domestically.

Victor Vesnaver, Chief Operating Officer of RMS, said of these findings, “This encouraging increase, coupled with lasting operational changes the industry has deployed as a result of COVID-19, shows promise for a long-term rebound and grounding in more local, road-based travel that is exciting for the overall travel industry.”

The study also found that ongoing remote work opportunities may affect traveller profiles, with 42% of respondents stating a preference for managing remote work from a hotel if given the opportunity, while 35% would prefer an AirBnb-style rental. Customers are also greatly influenced by a property’s digital content, including social media, website, and online reviews.

“It’s our hope that by uncovering these industry trends, we can equip hospitality businesses with the necessary tools to spearhead growth during this critical time,” continued Vesnaver. “The hospitality industry is nothing if not resilient, and we look forward to being a valuable partner aiding in the continued success of these properties as they serve a new kind of travel customer.”
