ORCL Faces Tough Competition in the PMS Market

PMS solutions have transitioned from manual to automated systems nowadays. Automated PMS solutions streamline various processes, such as responding to tenant complaints and managing finances, contracts and documents.

According to a report by Grand View Research, the global property management software market was valued at $4.47 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a rate of 8.1% annually from 2023 to 2030. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for web-based services like software as a service (SaaS) in the property management sector. SaaS-enabled PMS platforms allow for the management of day-to-day operations, such as building maintenance, accounting and tenant tracking, from a centralized platform.

The adoption of cloud computing services in the hospitality industry benefits both service providers as well as customers. This strategy improves the quality of services provided while remaining cost-effective. It lowers expenses, introduces scalability and automation to business operations and ensures a smooth customer experience.

Oracle faces tough competition in the PMS market from players like SAP (SAP - Free Report) , Amazon (AMZN - Free Report) and Alphabet (GOOGL - Free Report) .

SAP Hospitality Management effectively oversees hotels, consistently surpassing competitors. Operating both full-service and focus-service hotels in the Midwest United States, SAP increases hotel revenues through a strong sales and marketing approach.

Amazon Web Services’ Travel and Hospitality Competency provides various technology solutions and services to accelerate the industry's progress and development. These cover a wide range, including customer and operational data insights, digital customer interactions, interconnected experiences with smart devices and the modernization of essential travel and hospitality applications.

Alphabet-owned Google has partnered with hotel chains to introduce Nest Hub smart displays and Google Assistant into hotel rooms. This voice assistant retrieves information from the hotel's database to answer questions about available services, promotions, or special offers.

Oracle Hospitality offers a comprehensive suite of technology solutions tailored for various types of hotels, chains, gaming establishments and cruise lines. The company’s hardware, software and services enable customers to make informed decisions using data, provide personalized experiences for guests, optimize profitability and build loyalty.
