Hotel management at lofty heights: The ALPENIGLU Village in Austria relies on the Cloud solution protel Air

The Team ALPENIGLU manage their igloo hotel with the flexible SaaS solution protel Air

(PresseBox) (Dortmund, ) High above the quaint town of Brixen in south Tyrol, Austria, the ALPENIGLU village opens its (icy) gates for the eighth time this winter. At a room temperature of 28 degrees Fahrenheit and on beds made with reindeer hide and mummy sleeping bags, guests can enjoy their stay at this igloo hotel. The ALPENIGLU operators have long been looking for a flexible and mobile hotel management tool and have now found the perfect solution by German protel hotelsoftware GmbH. protel’s SaaS solution protel Air not only guarantees mobility and flexibility but also meets their needs perfectly.

Completely made of ice and snow, the ALPENIGLU village is one of the most exciting destinations for a winter holiday amidst the Kitzbuehel alps. With an open season of 90 days at the most and minimal infrastructure on site, the igloo village hotel has stringent requirements for hotel software. After a thorough search and several failed attempts, the operators Brigitte und Benno Reitbauer found the perfect solution at German protel hotelsoftware. The new Software-as-a-Service solution protel Air is not only flexible and mobile but also reliable, safe and highly scalable.

This “full-service” hotel management solution is run in a secure data center which makes additional hardware superfluous. All you need is an Internet browser. – Thus, the perfect solution for the APLENIGLU village: “Neither do we have a classic reception nor the necessary time and infrastructure for complex hard and software installations,” explains Brigitte Reitbauer. At an altitude of 1,300 meters the white village with its 18 igloos invites guests to an extraordinary overnight stay, fascinating igloo dinners, special evening arrangements and breathtaking ice art work and sculpture exhibitions. For all this to run smoothly, the ALPENIGLU guides now simply access all data in protel Air via the Internet.

To the Reitbauers the flexibility of the application wasn’t the only convincing advantage of protel Air, but also the convenient online booking options: “Many visitors of the ski resort Wilder Kaiser who see the village when skiing by, look for us online and can now book their stay right away.” And the ALPENIGLU owners are not the only ones who are convinced by the many advantages of protel’s SaaS solution: protel Air pioneers include the Hotel Norderriff on the island of Langeoog, Landgasthaus Fischer in Suthfeld, the Lederer’s Living in Kaprun and the Landgasthaus Fischer in Suthfeld.
