Bethesda, MD – June 10 2014. StayNTouch Inc., provider of the PMS Mobile Overlay Platform, is pleased to announce the implementation of their solutions at the Carlyle Suites Hotel.
Since implementing StayNTouch in March, the 167-room Carlyle has experienced daily revenue gains exceeding $20,000 when annualized. Promoting/monetizing late checkouts and upsells to hotel guests via Zest Web™ have accomplished the revenue gains. In addition, via Rover FrontOffice™ the hotel staff is checking-in guests away from the front desk via mobile tablet, increasing guest engagement and line busting. Finally, via Rover Housekeeping, attendants are increasing communications and shortening the time it takes to service rooms and bring them back to vacant ready status.
StayNTouch delivers 4 solutions on one platform…
- StayNTouch Cloud PMS: Overlay on top of PMS bringing the front office functionality onto a mobile/tablet in a touch/graphic user experience. Including remote key encoding & secure credit card swipe. Enables staff flexibility to service guests anytime, anywhere. Line-busting. Zero training.
- StayNTouch – Rover Housekeeping™: Via any mobile device (iTouch, tablet, etc.), housekeeping has touch-optimized user interface for full access to rooms-to-clean lists, room status, guest information and ability to update room status after servicing.
- StayNTouch Guest Mobility: Mobile Web experience enabling branded guest pre-engagement. Guest mobile check-in & out, preferences collected, upsell opportunities, staff-less key fulfillment.
- StayNTouch Guest Mobility: Guest Smartphone App, white labeled, PMS integrated, enabling guest remote check-in & out, folio review, location aware/beacon, social media, promotions engine, reviews, services ordering.
