News from GuestTraction

Online Check In is Now Open

Tune Hotels

Similar to an airline service, the guest is invited to Check In prior to arrival thus saving them, and your operations team from having to do mundane tasks at the front desk. The guest’s first impression of the hotel becomes a positive experience while operational efficiency is improved – a win win. The process is very simple: Guests are notified that On line Check In is Open: - This is automated with an email sent to the guest a day or two prior to arrival date - A URL to their personalized Check In Form is included - The guest completes the On Line Check In form prior to arrival - The guest is notified their Check In is complete

Depending on the hotel’s technology, guests are advised to: - Take the #express queue and pick up the prepared key card - Use the hotel #kiosk to create the key - Have the #mobilekey automatically delivered to their smartphone

The above solution will include a number of APIs to integrate to PMS and the other third party systems.
