Today, a number of international hotel chains have started adopting mobile-apps and digital keys that help to maintain guest safety and privacy. Apart from that, digital keys ensure hassle-free and more secure entry and exit for guests.
Almost every reputed hospitality industry has started offering self-check-in options for the guests. It not only saves the labor costs of extra staff at the front office to carry out the clerical works but also enables the staff to know the time of the guest's arrival, manage and predict the staffing needs, and personalized the experience and offers. Similarly, the trend ensures a smooth, painless, and easy check-out process, which increases the accuracy of routine operations of the hotel.
