Ireland's largest hotel operator Dalata has implemented a new cloud-based system to simplify the management of payments and finances across its entire business.

The solution, which unifies the financial systems across all 39 hotels in the group, was designed and provided by Irish software developer Envisage Cloud.

The injection of €200,000 into the upgrade of their existing payments and processing operations is part of Dalata's plans to continue their expansion

The group intends to open the doors to at least eight more hotels, under their Clayton and Maldron hotel brands, across Ireland and the UK by the end of 2021.

Envisage Cloud's bespoke software and Sage200 cloud solution has increased payment productivity for the group as it eliminates the need for each hotel in the group to use individual accounts applications.

"Our finance team now have remote access to the system, removing the need to travel between hotels," Edel Conran, Finance Project Manager, Dalata Hotel Group, said.

"This also allows us to improve efficiencies and reduce costs in our internal audit team as we can do most of the preparation work in advance.”

The new system also provides additional layers of security and helps protect against bank fraud and strengthen Dalata’s corporate governance.
