Software & Services

IDeaS Services


"The critical factor in utilizing IDeaS was their client-centric philosophy. Their team listened to us and customized a solution that met the unique needs of our business.”

Work with a true partner. Not just a software vendor.

We think of IDeaS Services as the people behind the software - people who understand and genuinely care about the hotel business. Most companies offer their software as-is and are only willing to help for a hefty fee. If that’s what your needs are, of course we can deliver our software and let you run with it. However, we’ve found that most hotels, even the internationally famous ones, do not fall into this camp.

The Services team works under the premise that anyone can offer software. It’s how you implement them that counts. They don’t consider the job done until your software is fully functional and you and your employees feel completely at ease with it.
