Markham, Ont. — In the hospitality industry, budgets are tight and workers are scarce, but customers still expect service excellence. Nowhere is this dynamic more apparent than in housekeeping. In September 2021, PurpleCloud announced its integration with the Maestro PMS solution – a tool that helps properties do more with less while aligning service with guest expectations. Today, PurpleCloud announces that three additional properties work on Maestro PMS with the recently implemented integrated tool; Service optimization platform and employee engagement platform, and these properties are now enjoying the benefits they provide.
Efficient housekeeping based on real-time circumstances
The housekeeping module tracks check-ins and check-outs in real time to create an efficient schedule based on “real clean times”. Benefits of using the platform include:
- More savings: The platform eliminates inefficiencies in housekeeping. This reduces the number of hours worked by staff members, which lowers the cost of housekeeping services.
- Revenue increase: Properties are better able to detect and manage early arrivals, late departures and stay services through the platform, which increases revenue.
- Decline in turnover: The platform includes gamification features that keep team members engaged, working hard, and feeling recognized. Over time, this increases job satisfaction and reduces turnover.
Properties can use the housekeeping module in tandem with PurpleCloud’s hotel services optimization platform which facilitates multilingual text and voice messaging between frontline workers and their managers.
Managers have access to dashboards that show housekeeping progress at a property, as well as dashboards that track individual housekeeping performance and progress. The app describes their projects, sends relevant alerts, displays their ranking in the leaderboard, and more.
