Boost Productivity with Cloud-Hosted Servers
A Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system can help your hotel reduce costs and deliver state-of-the-art communication options for your team and customers.
With a VoIP system, you can connect your cell phone with your office phone to stay up-to-date with reservations, appointments and other important calls from anywhere!
Whether your team members are working from home, constantly on-the-go, or only have one person on-site, the VoIP phone system is the perfect solution to ensure that all phone-calls are accessible to boost productivity. The cloud-hosted server handles inbound and outbound dialing, voicemail and more. Many VoIP systems can handle online faxing or SMS text messaging and offer you the flexibility to work on the go.

VoIP systems rely on the same internet connection that your company uses to get online to make and receive calls. More than a regular phone, the VoIP phone systems run on affordable cloud technology and offers advanced features at a fraction of the cost of legacy phone systems.

VoIP phone systems are more cost-effective than traditional landline phone services. Best of all: there’s no need to invest in expensive hardware or worry about on-site upgrades and maintenance. Utility Telecom houses, maintains, and upgrades the technology in the cloud, and the digital capabilities means that our support staff can usually update your system remotely.

Don't Leave Money On The Table!


My name is Candra Rader and I am the CLIA/ILIA Channel Account Manager for American Payment Solutions (APS). Since 2012 APS has been the only endorsed credit card processing provider for both CLIA & ILIA.

In 2017 we collectively saved CLIA & ILIA members over $380,000 in processing fees by switching them to our APS Hotels Program! Switching could not be easier. We integrate into most major POS/PMS software, making the transition seamless and painless.

Both CLIA & ILIA have put their trust in APS to provide the best service, at the best rates, for its members. Don’t leave money on the table by paying higher than necessary fees. Contact me to join the APS Hotels Program today and enjoy the benefits of the ONLY payment processor endorsed by both CLIA & ILIA.
Thank you,

Maintaining the Privacy of Employee Information
Employers often accumulate an assortment of personal data about job applicants. Even more information about current employees is gathered, such as their job performance, health, family and personal subjects. Increasing worries over the acquisition of this information has led to the implementation of laws related to the privacy of employer records.

To maintain the privacy of  employees information, any documents related to employee financial affairs, including wage assignments, garnishments, credit inquiries, etc. must be stored in a confidential file separate from an employee's personnel file. Access to this confidential file should be strictly controlled. Only people who have a real need to know should be able to see this information.
