Can you make Property Management Easier with SaaS based preventive Maintenance?

Tough economic times means fewer guests and lower revenues at hotels. To make up for revenue shortfalls property managers look to reduce costs. As a result, One of the keys to successful hotel property management is the ability to minimize capital expenditures.
