Our company conducts hotel operations audit, a gap-filling service to hotel management companies and hotel owners. We know from our vast experience, gained during decades in the hotel industry, that regular and comprehensive audits of operations are key to identify and eliminate risk factors jeopardizing revenues and costs of the hotel, thus protecting the owner, his assets and the return on investment.
It is important to mention that a hotel operations audit is not only helpful in identifying mistakes or weaknesses; the audit can also prove that the standards in place are good and should not be changed.
