What is Systems Integration?
Systems integration refers to the process of joining or combining several separate systems, subsystems, or/and sub-components. When all systems are integrated, a graphical interface will appear as one larger and unified system that encompasses all of them. Hence, all the integrated systems will function as if they are a single system.
The objective of BITS Arabia system integration is to make all your business’s various IT systems engage with one another in the background. This will lead to less time, money, and effort spent to manage and operate all of them separately.
The systems that needed to be integrated don’t have to do similar functions, nor have to be in one location. Integrated systems could rather be different and distinct systems. However, it creates a unified access point controlling all the systems.
Why is system integration necessary for Hotels?
The digital transformation is increasing in all businesses, especially in KSA hospitality. The hospitality industry has also become a developing IT business. Hotels have started to utilize the IoT “Internet of Things” and all other automotive technologies.
These IT-based businesses have ended up operating a big number of systems. that could be on-premise and/or on-cloud. According to the MuleSoft 2019 report, each big international business uses 900 different systems and subsystems on average.
Here is a practical System integration example: If your hotel operates only 10 systems, you surely need to integrate them. So, the main integrated systems for hotels would combine:
- The temperature control systems
- Door access systems
- Security systems
- Public address systems
- Access control systems
- Interior and exterior lighting
- Utility monitoring systems
- Elevator control systems
- IP systems for surveillance
- Room control systems

- Fire and alarm systems
- Alternative systems for energy

- And many more!
All these hotel integrated systems would be managed and monitored anywhere and anytime from a single access point. This achieves the dominant functionality your business requires.
System Integration Benefits
