By Ryan Hamilton For many of us, the mention of oversized desktop computers and dial-up internet may inspire a rush of nostalgia, lest we forget battling with other family members to ensure a phone call didn’t interrupt our browsing session. While these memories are exactly that – distant memories – it isn’t hard to draw a parallel between those platforms that marked the dawn of the internet age and the legacy platforms that many hoteliers still rely on today.

By Ryan Hamilton After the year that was 2020, 2021 seems to be a period defined by cautious optimism. A world on the precipice of a long-awaited reopening, with a predicted surge of social and economic activity ready to shift our respective communities from the ‘new’ normal to the normal we once knew.
