The study adopted a conceptualized technological, organizational and environmental (TOE) model to empirically investigate the factors affecting hotel managers’ attitudes toward intelligent agent technology (IAT) adoption in the hotel food supply chain management (HFSCM) and their intentions for future adoption.
In-person survey was carried out in luxury hotels in Florida.
The findings indicated that merely 5.7 per cent of hotels are fully implementing IAT. Perceived benefits, reliability, quality of human resources, information intensity and market capabilities had a statistically significant positive impact on hotel managers’ attitudes. However, complexity and cost had a negative influence on hotel managers’ attitudes toward IAT adoption in the HFSCM. Managers’ attitude further positively influences their intention to adopt.
The validated model helps guide hotel decision makers who are considering IAT adoption in the HFSCM. Hotels that are seeking sources for competitive advantages would better consider the TOE factors in IAT adoption prior to making a decision.
This is the first study that examined IAT adoption in the hotel industry from a theoretical and empirical perspective. The validated model proposed for the adoption of IAT in HFSCM enriched the TOE model and the diffusion of innovations theory.
研究结果表明, 只有百分之 5.7 的酒店全面采用 IAT。感知好处 可依赖性 人力资源的质量 信息密度 市场能力等对酒店经理的态度有积极显著效果。然而, 复杂性和成本对酒店经理在HFSCM上采用IAT有负面影响。经理态度对使用意图有进一步积极影响。
本论文验证的模型对酒店决策者评估 IAT 在 HFSCM 方面的使用有着参考作用, 为了竞争优势, 酒店决策者应该考虑在决策前先考虑IAT使用的 TOE 因素。
本论文是首篇结合理论与实践, 在酒店行业检验对 IAT 使用的文章。在 HFSCM 中IAT使用的验证模型对 TOE 模型和 DOI 理论有显著意义。

This paper aims to empirically investigate the influence of the intelligent agent technology (IAT) on hotels’ food procurement practices (FPPRs) and food procurement performance (FPP). The study also explores the influence of FPPR on FPP in hotels.
Data from a survey of managers at luxury hotels in Florida, which yielded an effective sample of 78, were subjected to partial least squares structural equation modeling analysis.
IAT usage has statistically significant positive effect on both FPPR and FPP. Additionally, the results indicated that PPR has a positive influence on FPP.
The study provided academia with a comprehensive review of the prior research on IAT benefits in food supply chain management (FSCM) and a comprehensive explanation of how the hotel FPPR are being performed by IAT. It also offers industry and technology specific insights.
Hotel managers should pay more attention to IAT application regarding the FPPR, specifically gathering information, supplier contract, contacting, requisitioning and intelligence and analysis. Moreover, hotel managers should enhance their employees’ abilities to be technology-oriented to maximize IAT benefits in FPP.
The results represent an extension to the technological innovation literature of the hospitality industry to bridge the gap of IAT in hotel FP. The framework used in the study serves as a foundation for future research studies in the hospitality industry, in FSCM in particular.

Internet of Things (IoT) is a key enabler of big data and it is critical toward a new age of firm's architecture and proper decision-making for the industry. IoT adoption by the hospitality and tourism (H&T) industries is still rare and with contrasting evidence. The purpose of this study is to highlight the concept of IoT, its benefits, its challenges and its applications in the hospitality industry.
This study presents an in-depth and critical review of the 78 articles published on IoT in hospitality, spanning more than seven years (from 2015 to March 2022). The eligible 78 articles were collected from the “Web of Science database” and H&T Social Sciences Citation Index-listed journals.
This systematic review exhibits that IoT in hospitality has advanced in the past seven years. IoT has brought many advantages and challenges in hospitality. However, hospitality IoT research is scarce, necessitating a profound and more thorough investigation of many significant matters.
This systematic review provides significant implications and recommendations for hospitality sectors, IoT developers and manufacturers, governments and policymakers. This review ends with an in-depth research agenda with several research questions and a framework to achieve theoretical and empirical advances in future IoT research.
To the best of the authors’ knowledge, the current research is one of the first to systematically and critically review IoT with its concept, benefits, challenges and applications in a hospitality context. This major review provides a comprehensive idea of the focus of the past studies and what must be concentrated in future research.
