HITIS refers to the Hospitality Industry Technology Integration Standards project. It is a scheme maintained by the American Hotel & Motel Association with the aim of identifying and standardizing relevant data and functions related to the hospitality industries information technology systems.

The disadvantages of using a vendor in compliance with the HITIS depend on the legacy systems present at a particular location. If those systems are already HITIS complaint then no issues should arise, however if they are not HITIS complaint then using a complaint vendor could result in the following issues:

  1. System incompatibility
  2. Prohibitive implementation and integration costs
  3. Restrictions on tailoring products to fit individual business processes
  4. Lack of customization
