Losing content from old the website
Hotels might fear losing content from the old site during the transition but everything is capable of being saved onto the desktop. If you created your own website with a site builder like FrontPage or Dreamweaver, it is likely you already have files of all of your content save to the desktop. However, if you used a web-based builder, you can download each page and save them onto your computer. This can be done either with an FTP tool or by the File>Save method with a web browser. After all the pages have been saved, you can save all e-mails from the old site, if you have been using web-based mail, by forwarding e-mails to an off-network e-mail address of by archiving the e-mails to the computer hard drive.
During the process of saving all the content from the website on the computer and transferring it over to the new site, some might be concerned about downtime. When switching to a new provider, you do not immediately have to let go of your old website. You can still keep your old site while you switch over so long as you pay for the service which would leave no downtime at all. Also, having all the information from the old site and saved and organized onto the computer will greatly speed the process of transitioning.
Ending longstanding relationship with designer
Many hotels fear cutting ties with designers and developers that they have grown to rely on for a long time but what they need to realize is hanging on to these vendors may not be in their best interest. Relying on multiple vendors to manage a website inherently involves higher costs and delays while waiting for requests to be responded to. Also, hotels might not have the confidence that they will be able to create a site that is equally beautiful if they decide to explore other options but with a specialized, fully-integrated system like the buuteeq DMS (Digital Marketing System), all the technical and design aspects are already taken care of. Hotels just need to upload photographs and content which can mostly be taken from the previous site. Not only will the buuteeq DMS deliver a site that is beautiful, better-performing, and fully branded with your hotels logo and color scheme, but since the system is completely self-managed, hotel have complete control and never have to deal with delays that come with relying on designers.
