A Study on the Influence of Technologies Applied to Organizational Performance Learning in the Hotel Sector

María Soledad Celemín Pedroche, Rodríguez Antón JM, Rubio Andrada and Karaboytcheva MK

Hotel sector is one of the most influenced by the new information and communication technologies (ICTs) since it generates a vast amount of information which circulates through these new technologies. Additionally, the latter could be a potential source of organizational performance. This paper has an exploratory character and analyses how the new ICTs influence the hotels’ organizational performance. Thus, a descriptive statistical analysis and a study of statistical associations through Cramer’s V have been carried out using data from 106 Valencian Community hotel establishments. The results show, on the one hand, that Internet and Intranet are the most influential technologies on intra-organizational level and, on the other hand, show that the Central Reservation Systems -CRS- and web 2.0 are the most important on an inter-organizational level. Both technologies affect most of the analysed results at organizational level.
