About the Customer

Travelodge Hotels Limited is a private company operating in the hotels and hospitality industry throughout the United Kingdom. Branded simply as Travelodge, it is the second largest in the budget hotel sector and third biggest hotel chain in the UK by a number of bedrooms.

Scope and Challenges

Travelodge, the UK's largest independent hotel chain with over 500 hotels, has chosen Infor SunSystems to support its UK operations as it continues to grow its business.

Travelodge opted for a cloud deployment as it removes the need for on-site hardware at each hotel, and because it can scale in line with the company's ambitious growth plans.

Outcome and Implications

To be deployed in the cloud, and hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the application will help streamline operations by focusing on financial reporting, procurement, invoicing and financial management across the estate.

Infor SunSystems was chosen because of its hospitality industry-specific capabilities including USALI compliance, and Infor's deep domain expertise within the hotel industry.

Quotes

"As the UK's largest independent hotel chain, we are a growing business. We have recently invested £100 million upgrading our hotels with a new contemporary brand look and feel. We have exchanged contracts for more new hotels in the first half of 2015 than we did for the whole of 2014, and we have plans to open in at least 250 further locations over the years ahead. To support these growth plans we need a world-class operation and financial infrastructure and by working with Infor SunSystems via a cloud model we are able to do exactly that." said Nick Taylor, Director of Operational Finance of Travelodge.
