Our generation learned a new name covid-19 like we learnt other terms like Ebola and Tsunami etc,. There is a wonderful documentary in Netflix that talks about covid-19 and why it could be more dangerous than Ebola and SARS.
As of now social distancing is the only means available to us from contracting this virus. This has affected all industries but mainly the hospitality industry and has changed the way hotels and resorts will do business going forward.
Hotels and resorts are looking for ways to do business without much human interaction and with the lock down being partially lifted around the world, hotels and resorts are looking for tools to do business with limited human resources and interactions.
At Geedesk we have built a free self check-in (web check-in or echeck-in) application for hotels and resorts to be able to complete the check-in process with zero human contact.
The self check-in application is 100% on the cloud and is similar to the web check-in option for aircraft tickets. Confirmed guests will complete the check-in process via a web link before they check into the property.
For walk-in guests the front desk executive can send the unique link via email and the guests can comfortably sit in the lobby and complete the check-in process on their own before collecting the key card.
The self check-in application can also be integrated with payment gateways to collect the advance payment along with the check-in process.
This application is 100% on the cloud and completely free of charge for every hotel and resort in the world. This means you neither have to pay for the software nor for the infrastructure.
We will write a different blog post explaining how the application works. Until then you can reach out to us at sales @ geedesk.com.
