Why We Find Software Opinions, Well, Awkward...

So, you're a hotelier navigating the maze of software in 2024. If we had to make an educated guess, you are probably reading articles and “top 10” lists to assist in your buying quest. Buuuut….unpopular opinion: when it comes to such a critical decision, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Those lists are nice, and reviews certainly have a place, but neither of those are effective on their own. Oof. That was hard. But we said it.

We know that YOU know what works for ten other properties, may not work for you. And when you dive deeper and think through it, what’s the real reason that those lists aren’t as impactful as they seem? You know it as well as we do there is an arduous process that comes with determining the right software for a business, and it starts at the heart of it all: your team. You and your team are the only ones who can truly define the features and partnership requirements that will stand the test of time for success. And that isn’t something you can gain from an article or a top ten list.  

How do you start then, with making the right choice?  If you’re looking to get away from the one-size-fits-all approach (which we highly recommend 🙂), what’s your first step? First and foremost: make a list. Yep, that’s right. A list. Jot down the KEY FEATURES that you need in a software partner. No, not the features that the rest of the world is loving. What YOU need, and it wouldn’t hurt to jot down the “why” next to each of those either. (Psst…if you don’t have a list of features or don’t know where to start, we do.)

Next up, identify the partners who meet those feature needs…hold up (do you hear crickets?)That takes work. Like, a lot of work. Wouldn’t it be helpful if there was a way to speed up the process? Take the precious time you’re spending on narrowing down vendors and instead talk to the ones that have the best feature set for you. Ta-Da! Now you’re onto something. 

Introducing Affixify: Your Trusted Hotel Software Matchmaker

This leads us to…us. Affiixify has been doing the work to introduce you to our platform–a tool designed specifically to use a feature-matching engine to connect hotels to software vendors based only on the data.  At the heart of it all, we created Affixify because we want nothing more than to help your hotel find software in an unbiased way. That doesn’t depend on opinions or articles. But that takes the data of what you are looking for and connects you to the best partner opportunities as a result. We provide key insights about you to potential software partners- without revealing WHO you are until both parties agree it is mutually beneficial to connect.

 Whether you're a boutique hotel, a luxury resort, or a chain of properties, Affixify considers your individual needs to provide personalized recommendations you can trust. Let’s all be honest here- whether we like it or not, there is some level of emotion in a buying decision. What we want to avoid is that emotion being part of the initial vendor selection process.

Now what? 

If you are a hotel, it’s time to learn more about Affixify. It’s free and it’s here to help you. Call us, reach out to us, we’re ready to help! 

If you are a vendor, we want to help get you in touch with super-qualified leads. Hotels that are not only seeking to make a buying decision but who qualify specifically for your product. Please reach out to us too- we’re ready to help! 

That’s all for now. Stay tuned, because we are just getting started.
