Mobile-first for instant requests
In the digital age, engagement is critical. A real-time, immediate platform of messaging is a gripping engagement channel for hoteliers. The new handy Concierge Chat offers a live-chat function for guests to arrange for hotel services such as spa and restaurant reservations, in-room requests e.g. additional pillows and toiletries, or other enquiries.



Virtually available anytime, anywhere
No matter where your guests are, making requests to the hotel concierge has now made so much easier. With the new Concierge Chat feature, guests no longer have to make a call within a certain timeframe nor wait in the queue for the concierge desk. In fact, they could simply activate the chat function and enjoy a personal concierge at their fingertips at all times, even outside of the hotel property.

Analyse performance effectively
Messaging can help hotels improve guest satisfaction, by giving hotel the opportunity to take advantage of every request, suggestion, concern or compliment from guests. Hoteliers could make use of the guest preferences and data collected to identify guests’ need, improve services and analysed over staff performances.
