Smart rooms

Smart rooms can include room service apps. Apps can also control the room’s lighting and temperature or even request laundry services. In -room tablets (which among other things can be used for the app instead of their own device). Smart TVs (guests like to unwind at the end of the day with their favorite streaming shows and movies). Voice control so they can among other things control the lights and temperature of the room with just their voice.

Chatbots

Younger travelers prefer to avoid talking with people if possible. That’s why more and more hotels are using chatbots.

A chatbot can either answer frequently asked questions or send the guest to the correct department. If someone is wondering how late the hotel bar is open or which is the best pizza in town, a chatbot can easily answer their questions.

Robots

Don’t worry, robots won’t replace hospitality staff anytime soon, but they can help them fulfill their duties.

Hotels are already using robots for cleaning and vacumming, helping staff do their job faster.

Big data

Big data refers to the large collection of information that businesses get from their clients. Which in hospitality, it’s a lot!

What matters the most is how you use that data. It can be used to research customer behavior so you can make better business decisions.
