IDS Next, the hospitality solutions provider, is now focussing on training of personnel throught its IDS Next Advantage Academy. The demand for education in the hospitality sector is driven by the dependence on trained manpower.

To cater to the huge training need, IDS Next has launched a comprehensive 100 hours certification course spanning over 20 days on all the modules of its FortuneNEXT 6i Suite of Hotel Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Students can opt for module-wise certification in line with their specialisation.

As a global leader in providing hospitality technology solutions to over 3,500 hotels across 40 countries, IDS Next is also committed to empower each and every stakeholder in the hospitality ecosystem.

“We ensure that our customers are able to use our hotel ERP to the fullest by training their staff. The huge training needs opened up by educational institution, and training and retraining needs in the industry, led us to set up Advantage Academy,” said Varadharajan Athmanathan, vice-president, Global Customer Engagement Group and IDS Next Advantage Academy.

“Through this training academy, we enhance the employability of hospitality personnel and give them a headstart in the market,” he added.

“Our software has been approved by the All India Council of Technical Education to be a part of the hotel management curriculum, and is taught in over 60 hotel management colleges in India,” Athmanathan stated.

“We are committed to technologically empower hotels, and thus could not ignore the importance of hotel management graduates, who are poised to be the new face of the industry,” he added.

The company stated that there was a considerable churn in the hospitality industry, as people quit their jobs and new people are recruited.

A hotel needs to train new staff on the use of IDS Next software. It is here that the IDS Next Advantage Academy would play a role.

Educational institutions offer high-level training on the software. The ERP solution has several features to help generate hundreds of reports.

To automate a maximum number of functions, hotels adopt the IDS Next software. The exposure is provided to both freshers and experienced staff on the specific module related to their work (for instance, front office, finance and accounts receivables.

“IDS Next Hotel ERP is used in over 60 per cent of the hotels in India. If prospective hospitality personnel know the software before they enter the job market, it is easier for them to find a job. If they are already trained in it, they get snapped up by hotels,” Athmanathan said.

He added, “IDS Next Advantage Academy endeavours to train as many people possible on our software, on various tips and tricks on how to work faster and how to generate customised reports.”

“The Hotel ERP is also periodically enhanced. Informing hospitality personnel about these enhancements and additional features is also one of our objectives,” Athmanathan said.
