Do I Need to Upgrade my Hotel Business Center from Windows 7 Now?
Microsoft announced that they are no longer supporting Windows 7 Operating System. So what exactly does that mean? To sum it up, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or send patches for the OS. If at some point machines and PCs operating Windows 7 become vulnerable, they will not accept support calls for the operating system or older machines.
If your hotel is still using Windows 7, upgrading your business center software can be costly. At the same time, your hotel wants to continue to enhance the experience of today’s tech-savvy traveler. Today’s travelers are consistently connected and having a modern business center that provides the technologies necessary for work or pleasure is now a sought after amenity.
