RED BANK, N.J., March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreMatrix(R), a leading cloud computing consulting company, today announced that its customer base of travel and hospitality companies continues to grow as the industry adopts cloud solutions at a faster rate.
While many industries have rapidly embraced the cloud, travel and hospitality is only recently experiencing broader cloud adoption. Many major hotel groups and travel companies, who were early adopters of information technology, still have legacy systems for reservations and other operations. Many are now moving to the cloud to take advantage of more efficient distributed computing services, lower infrastructure costs, and built-in toolsets for building and connecting applications.
Co-founder of CoreMatrix, Paul Nix, said that consumer behavior is also motivating travel and hospitality companies to adopt cloud computing.
"Consumers are searching for travel deals, as well as sharing their travel experiences and recommendations over social networks. Cloud computing offers travel and hospitality companies an opportunity to better engage with consumers to meet their needs, and to gain a competitive advantage in their industry," said Co-founder of CoreMatrix, Paul Nix. He pointed out that some reservation and booking apps run right inside Facebook, and that travel and hospitality companies are turning to cloud solutions to create a more dynamic and satisfying customer experience.
