Mobile concierge (also known as digital concierge or service requests) can unlock a host of benefits for both staff and guests alike and deliver new ways of optimising resources and driving revenue.
According to Hospitality Technology’s 2022 Customer Engagement Survey, 73% of guests want to interact with hotels via their smartphones, so what better way than providing guests with an online means of making requests or accessing information in the palm of their hands?
Here, we explore how mobile concierge can fulfil a host of needs for both hoteliers and guests…
Mobile concierge or online service requests can elevate the hotel’s guest experience by providing guests with a convenient and efficient way of accessing information and making requests.
And by providing guests with this service, hotels can streamline staff resources by reducing the need for staff to answer repetitive questions or perform routine tasks. This enables staff to focus on providing more personalised service and addressing more complex guest needs.
How can mobile concierge improve the guest experience in hotels?
Digital concierge services provide guests with personalised, timely information and assistance through a mobile app or website. Guests can use the service to make reservations, request housekeeping or maintenance services, and access information about the hotel and local area. Overall, it can improve guest satisfaction and enhance the guest experience by providing guests with more control and convenience during their stay.
