In an era where digital advancements have revolutionized how we connect and learn, the online world has become an essential platform for various industries, including education and professional development.

CiMSO supports the Education and Non-profit Sectors through Software Donations.

CIMSO promotes education and industry readiness in the hospitality and lodging sector. We propose donating our CIMSO INNkeeper Software Suite to Educational Institutions, providing students with valuable learning opportunities and certification. The software can be used either as part of the Hotel School curriculum or as an optional subject. To support certified individuals, we maintain an online certification register for businesses to verify competency. We also express interest in exploring internship programs for certified students, offering practical experience at customer establishments. By donating our software, we seek industry recognition as students enter the workforce, anticipating future returns for CIMSO. Incorporating CIMSO software into the curriculum enhances industry readiness, providing students with CIMSO certification and hands-on experience. This commitment reflects our dedication to advancing education, empowering students, and establishing solid ties with educational institutions for future collaborations in training and certification.
