Digital transformation in the Tourism and Hospitality industry has received aggressive support from the government authorities. Numerous businesses are striving every day to digital transformation as fast as possible to race against the constant development of digital 4.0 technology. At VinHMS, the digital transformation has begun since the very beginning and is no longer a “new” concept for us to grasp. This required intensive kick-start training to make sure every VinHMS-er is on the same page and shares the same mission.
Then, why don’t we start this training much earlier on? For the students with tourism and hospitality majors who are still in school to experience the real digital transformation process, to practice their knowledge into actual real-life context without waiting for their internship or after the graduation. That was how VinHMS’s educational collaboration program started aiming to introduce our hospitality management solution – CiHMS from the source.
In November, VinHMS had successfully signed the educational collaboration program agreement with all the Tourism – Hospitality departments at the 3 highly reputed universities in Ho Chi Minh city first, including Hoa Sen University, Van Lang University, and Ton Duc Thang University. The program shall be applied to all universities across our nation soon after that. Once in the program, VinHMS will be providing the hotel PMS – CiHMS to the university campuses FREE of charge to use internally. The students shall earn the opportunity to approach, practice, and implement the software throughout their years.

After the implementation of CiHMS solutions and completing the hand-over process to Hoa Sen University, VinHMS has received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the students and faculty, this is the joy and pride the CiHMS team share individually, and VinHMS in general. The software will become a reliable support tool for teaching, helping students to gain their chance in practice and confront the real world rather than learning this knowledge through textbooks.
In addition, VinHMS and the universities shall encourage and motivate each other to exchange professional knowledge and expertise and collaborate to organize beneficial seminars for the students, striving to better understand and strengthen our CiHMS solution’s features and functionalities in the future. The VinHMS’s educational collaboration program is our way to “Paying it Forward” to the younger generation, the future leaders of Vietnam’s Tourism – Hospitality industry.
