If your competitor has more to offer in terms of an experience, they are more likely to bring in more guests, and some of those guests may inevitably be yours.
What type of technology, A/V and IT consultant are you looking for?
Audio Visual (A/V) Consulting
A/V and new IT technologies are converging making it more challenging for many A/V systems to communicate with these new technologies.
A/V systems continue to not be integrated because many of these audio visual systems are constructed by a traditional A/V team and then a separate IT team is hired to attempt to integrate this A/V system to the IT system.
This kind of separate installation often leads to non-user friendly, poor sounding, poor visual, incompatible, and often non-functioning A/V systems.
Our audio visual consultants work with our audio visual engineers and IT Team to design whole systems that communicate between A/V equipment, software, and new technologies seamlessly. We work with your current systems to get the best results. All users are able to use the A/V system with the latest technology for captivating audio visual presentations.
The telecommunications industry changes every second because of new technologies and because the technology market is expanding as more competitors enter. Then there is 5G, which has made it so that telecommunication companies are rapidly needing to change. Unfortunately many telecommunication companies are not adopting new technology quickly enough and as a result their clients are lagging behind with them. Hospitality companies have many users that rely on new technology. It is possible to meet those needs well into the future by installing the latest technology that is upgradable.
Cayuga is a leading consulting company that specializes in the hospitality industry. We develop strategies that keep up with current technology. Connect with one of our telecom consulting team members to learn more.

Low Voltage Infrastructure & Consulting
Many networks pose the problem of not being reliable or secure. This can create system failure or breaches in a network jeopardizing guests’ personal information.
If a low voltage network cabling is not planned or installed correctly it can cause connection disruptions or financial setbacks to the hotel and its guests. Our consultants can determine the building materials and the best way to update cabling in your building with the lowest guest impact. WiFi is also important because guests rely on connectivity while travelling. Despite the importance of this, many hotels still continue to have issues with their WiFi. They are familiar with hotel brand standards and different systems from Sysco to Ruckus and others.

E-tourism Cloud-based Solutions
Applications of e-tourism cloud-based solutions include tourism inventory and asset databases, online and offline visitor surveys, website and tourism trend analytics, and social media tourism marketing applications. These tools can help automate and enhance destination marketing and management efforts. However, few examples exist today that demonstrate the full potential of e-tourism solutions, particularly for emerging destinations.
Cloud architecture can make it easier for stakeholder and community engagement, as well as deliver the following benefits for destinations:
- Provide a lower cost alternative to existing investment approaches related to Tourist Information Centers (TICs) and logistical infrastructure
- Automate tourism asset mapping and stakeholder linkages
- Accelerate the collection of visitor data and feedback
- Automate the monitoring, benchmarking and recording of destination measures of success
These benefits bring higher quality tourism offers, which lead to increased hotel nights and, when possible, increased spending on activities, souvenirs, food and beverages. Ensuring that desired benefits and results happen requires the establishment of organizational structure and processes, development of funding and support options, creation of research and data management structures, as well as production of education and communication materials.
A qualified consultant also help tackle the following barriers to sustainable development:
- Weak data resource knowledge
- Limited ability to analyze trends and prioritize operational capabilities
- Limited ability to identify and link assets and stakeholders
- A lack of funding and thus insufficient commitment to allocating the necessary resources.
An hotel technology consultant helps to overcome these development barriers through application of its flexible and distributed information devices and processes. The resulting solution could help destinations:
- More easily collect hotel guest and visitor data
- Create a database of tourism-related stakeholders, including less direct stakeholders in the tourism value chain (i.e. suppliers in ancillary industries)
- Analyze visitor and supplier trends
- Benchmark destination elements and attractions against other destinations, thus providing a foundation for measuring, monitoring and evaluating performance
- Assist with innovative product development and marketing efforts
A destination could benefit from a Cayuga Hospitality Consultant when destination stakeholders – hotels, restaurants, attractions, parks, suppliers, etc. – want to better engage visitors and understand their needs, while managing operating costs.
