The 21st century is faster paced than ever. Everything and everyone are always in a rush and are moving so quick in what seems to be a hectic, chaotic lifestyle.
Time is money and when it comes to service, only the most efficient, convenient delivery is demanded.
This is why kiosks can speed up processes in the hotel and leisure industry; aiding travelling businessmen who have meetings to attend and appointments to be on time for.
To them time is of essence and is extremely important when it comes to their job; so touch screen technology which enables them to beat the queues and to check-in quickly is very valuable.
Nowadays, customer service does not depend upon a human greeting you at the front desk. People would rather use a machine; get their stuff and go; as opposed to waiting in line to be served.
A latest study has revealed that the best-in-class hospitality organisations are twice as likely to use self-service solutions.
The 2010 research, by the business research firm The Aberdeen Group, showed that the hotel industry is embracing kiosks to save money, offer better customer service; and because consumers are increasingly becoming more comfortable with the technology as if it was the norm.
Benefits of Touch screen kiosks being deployed in your leisure company are;
- Improve and speed up guest experience, which increases customer loyalty.
- A rise in customer loyalty in turn will increase revenues, ROI and reap in the profits.
- Shows the consumer you are keeping with the times, tech-savvy wise; developing your innovative brand image.
- Offers much more services for the customer; from mobile to internet.
- Reduces operational costs, as fewer staff needed to employ.
Self-service kiosks provide more than check-in facilities, consumers can also confirm reservations, select rooms, upgrade their existing rooms, as well as print maps out of the local areas including information of restaurants or tourist attractions.
Obviously, a person needs to be available to man the machine should it not work as well as giving that feeling of security, should help be needed.
