Do you spend a major amount of your time and energy trying to create or even sustain a level of growth at your hotel property? Do you find it difficult to maintain the expectations of both your guests and your hotel owners? Hotel management demands expertise at multitasking.
When you are pulled in numerous directions and responsible for overseeing various departments, including sourcing and procurement, you can easily become overwhelmed and lose focus on what your hotel is all about – the guests. When your attention is on bidding products and services, or meeting with suppliers, you are not paying attention to the guest experience and the growth of your hotel.
Even if you are well organized, it can be difficult when you’re running a small hotel. You still need to deliver high levels of service, but you’re at a disadvantage when it comes to purchasing. Large hotels and restaurants qualify for volume discounts, getting top-quality foods and beverages at a lower cost. Smaller hotels want to compete on food and beverage quality but this can mean ballooning budgets.
Managers have the option to either feel powerless and frustrated, or find experts to contribute to their success. Your hotel could operate at a higher potential and experience recognition from your owners by implementing solutions.
After all, they want to see a return on their investment, and rightly so.
Aside from booking as many rooms as possible, you will feel pressure to discover every way possible to cut down on your expenses, save money for the business and generate more revenue.
How much time do you spend sourcing and procuring food and beverage items and hotel supplies? Do you really have time to seek out true comparisons of costs versus quality and quantity for all of your hotel departments? Chances are you do not.
There is a time element involved when it comes to sourcing and procurement best practices. Fortunately, you do not have to shoulder the pressures and burden of these expectations alone. In fact, there is a way to take your operation to the next level.

Small hotels, which once felt powerless, can now feel powerful when they leverage the power of co-sourcing.
