The company has worked with the tutors and staff at each college to ensure students have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the role and operations of PMS in order to maximise their employment potential in the hospitality industry when they leave college.
Many hoteliers rely on Guestline's Rezlynx PMS to manage their operations and ensure they are achieving maximum occupancy at the most profitable rate. As a result there is a strong demand from colleges to ensure students have a working and practical understanding of its functionality.
The Edge Hotel School, based at the 50-room Wivenhoe House Hotel in Colchester, has selected Guestline's solutions for system training on its intensive two-year hospitality degree course. In doing so, its students will benefit from being taught the theory and are then able to put it into practice at the on-site property.
With 35 hospitality courses offered at Dumfries & Galloway College, students of the further education college also have the chance to follow a module in Guestline's property management system, Rezlynx.
East Kent College is another educational establishment training students on Guestline's technology, to equip future hoteliers with the skills to improve efficiencies and revenues across all hotel operations. With the 4-star Yarrow hotel situated on its Broadstairs Campus, pupils can benefit from being able to apply the theory in a commercial setting to further cement their knowledge.
Emma Johnstone, vice president of business development, Guestline, commented:
"It is increasingly important for anyone coming into a hotel environment to understand the value of their technology systems and how the right tools can translate into operational efficiencies, hence the rationale for building our relationship with hospitality colleges across the country. By working with a growing number of training colleges and introducing Guestline into their hospitality programmes, we're confident that the hoteliers of the future will be even better qualified with the skills necessary to utilise their PMS to maximum efficiency and achieve the best possible results. We look forward to developing this initiative and working with more colleges to support new entrants to the industry even further in the future."
