The needs for digitization, interactivity and remote management have grown enormously in recent years, putting an increasing focus on security and privacy. This is a constant challenge perfect for undertaking projects as ambitious as the one that Entertainment Solutions has carried out. The redesign of the different ZAFIRO solutions under a pure cloud architecture on Amazon Web Service.

A process that started at the end of 2018 and has required analyzing and selecting the optimal technologies and languages, converting all staff to them, and then redesigning and redeveloping the full range of ZAFIRO products created in the last 12 years. All this supported by the accumulated know-how, with the needs and expectations of the sector as a reference and with the goal of revolutionizing the technology currently in force on the market, reaching a level higher than the one that the company had already reached with the pre-existing product.

It is difficult to summarize a project of this magnitude in five words but we can assure you that one of the greatest challenges of bringing ZAFIRO to a purely cloud architecture has been to dump the expertise acquired over the years into a totally new system. ZAFIRO has reinvented itself in the cloud to once again generate a technological disruption and continue to evolve from it. In the words of Jorge García, ZAFIRO software architect, “Start over knowing more”.

The obvious advantage for our clients, traditionally in the hotel sector, of implementing a ZAFIRO solution now reinvented in the cloud is purely technological, with everything that involves embracing the highest standards of privacy, cybersecurity, scalability and availability from the hand of Amazon Web Services and enjoy the maximum performance and response speed that the most advanced programming languages ??of the moment allow.

Advantage that is followed by a long list such as that a chain can have a centralized corporate management of its different properties in a natural and friendly way from any location. Or that of an even more optimal experience for the guest, who will enjoy all the hotel services in a personalized way, accessing them in a single click from their mobile device as well as through the hotel screens. Now more than ever, interaction breaks down physical barriers allowing the establishment to provide care and services to its users anywhere, before, during and after the stay. ZAFIRO Cloud is a service delivery model aimed at meeting higher demand in a more sustainable and efficient way. Directly, immediately over time, with an almost flat cost and management impact. The ultimate goal is for the guest to perceive that everything works quickly and easily, making their user experience much more rewarding.
