The years 2020 and 2021 are an eye-opener for the hospitality industry, things can change fast and only those who innovate can survive such difficult times. Innovation and technology play a major role in recovery and those who do not wish to innovate with changing times perish.
The post covid world will look for safer ways to communicate and interact with each other. Now, hotels that use technology to boost their customer confidence will surpass their competitors and will win back those customers who are looking for security and safer ways to interact with each other.
Why is technology innovation required post covid?
With people still recovering from strict lockdown restrictions that were in place, social distancing, use of masks and sanitizers, etc. The way they interact and communicate has changed. People are more comfortable in touchless interactions and they prefer to avoid close contact while opting for a stay in a hotel. So, hotels must upgrade themselves as per the changed customer needs to win back their confidence and get the staff trained as per the new requirement.
With markets slowly opening and people again starting to travel for their summer vacations, hotels must prepare for a pleasant and safe stay for their guests. Contactless check-in and check-out, room service, parking area, housekeeping, etc. need a technology upgrade. Now, instead of manual work, more operations require to be automated. There must be a real-time flow of information between the departments to avoid any backlog or miscommunication which can, in turn, spoil the guest experience and stay.
