New White Paper from Ariane Systems Highlights Value and Importance of Self-Service Options in Hotel Industry
Return on investment, selecting ideal platforms among topics addressed in comprehensive document examining self-service as superior service
"From online and cloud-based solutions to mobile and kiosks, hoteliers have never before had so many self-service options to choose from-and never before has the traveling public been so expectant of having self-service options," says Ariane Systems CEO Laurent Cardot. "This white paper helps guide hoteliers to the self-service technologies that will best grow their bottom lines, offering real-world solutions and best practices to enhance revenue and improve the guest experience."
The white paper, "Hospitality Redefined: How Self-Service Technology is Transforming the Industry for the Mobile Generation," discusses the importance of investing in self-service technology that will pay off in the form of enhanced guest experience, increased operational efficiency and higher profits. Self-service is superior service, with technology having advanced to the point where it is often faster and easier for consumers to engage in automated self-service than to wait in a queue to interact with staff.
The white paper discusses the most obvious example of self-service in the hotel environment-the check-in and checkout processes-but that only scratches the hotel self-service surface. Technology can continue to facilitate self-service throughout the duration of a guest's hotel stay, with mobile applications that automate and simplify requests for on-property services and maturing push-marketing strategies that integrate guest service offerings with valuable upsell pitches.
"It is clear that a well considered suite of self-service offerings will contribute to increased consumer loyalty and generation of incremental revenue," says Christelle Pigeat, vice president of sales and marketing for Ariane Systems. "Through the white paper, hoteliers will learn how to select the ideal self-service platforms and integrate them seamlessly into existing hotel systems in a cost-effective and strategic manner. The paper also spells out the immense ROI opportunities from self-service. This is the future of the hospitality industry, and smart hoteliers are getting ahead of the curve now."
