Execution

Grupo Diestra conducted a three-month proof of concept (POC) to evaluate the performance of Oracle Hospitality solutions at its 16 hotel locations. It conclusively demonstrated the applications could easily accommodate the group’s needs.

“We first deployed Oracle Hospitality OPERA Multiproperty Cross Reservation Cloud Service in one location and continued to deploy the solution in all 16 locations over the next two-and-a-half years. We had to transition 1,500 employees from an outdated operation to a modern, easily customized, always improving system,” Gonzalez said.
