Travelodge upgrades IT kit for growth

Travelodge is preparing to upgrade the hardware used by its core systems to ensure service levels are maintained as the business goes through a period of rapid growth.

IT director Alex Thomson, who joined the firm last month, has begun a review of the hardware used by back-office and trading systems.

Travelodge will begin its hardware upgrades in the summer. The company's Opera property management system from software supplier Micros Fidelio will be the first to get extra hardware, some time in the third quarter.

Its website, which takes 80% of room bookings, will be the next core system to get more hardware, followed by an upgrade to Tra­velodge's payroll and HR application and SAP finance application.
