Why Hotel Automation is so important in Hospitality

Automation is making its mark within the hospitality industry like never before. Usually performed via software and technology, automation can benefit both hoteliers and their guests by saving time, saving money and removing stress. When talking about hotel automation, there is a myriad of possibilities. There are options for different departments and touching on the different stages of the guest journey. The benefits of automation for hotels are many: increased productivity, lower costs, a better experience for both staff and guests, more accurate forecasts and more precise pricing decisions.

Join our highly anticipated Shiji Buzz APAC Episode 4 to listen to our hospitality technology experts discuss some hot topics such as:

  • Does Automation work or suit all customer segments?
  • How to manage staff working alongside automated processes?
  • What parts of the customer journey matter to retain personal touch verses those parts that can benefit from automation / efficiencies etc?
  • After COVID, what piece of automation we would like to retain? What would we like to revert back to human service?
