Benefits of Hoteltap

Created and founded by Sandip Jariwala, Sandip understands the hotel business better than most. As the owner of Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in Alameda, California, Sandip understands it is crucial to respond to guest complaints and comments on a minute to minute basis as opposed to a day to day basis. eHotelier's editor says it best in their article:
HotelTap is a “digital logbook in the cloud” that replaces notebooks, paper tickets, sticky notes, internal emails, spreadsheets, text messages and radios for recording and responding to guest requests, performing and tracking maintenance tasks, and resolving customer complaints. Using a social media network format, HotelTap leverages mobility and the cloud to share information between those who “need to know,” from department to department, employee to manager, and manager to owner, in one comprehensive location.
Sandip Jariwala further states:
In my 20 years of operating hotels, I have always understood the importance of accurate and instant communication in helping me and my employees meet customer expectations.   I am an early adaptor of technology and I am aware of the fast paced changes in workplace communications. My employees and I are ready to take advantage of cloud and mobile technologies because we realize that our customers are not only adopting to these changes in their own lives but also expecting us to service their needs by changing the way we communicate in our business."
Hoteltap helps staff feel confident and reassured that all tasks are being completed for every work shift. Staff's moral will be rewarded by positive guest comments, problem free-stays, and increased revenue. No longer will hoteliers need to issue guest refunds for unsatisfactory stays, positively affecting the perception of your hotel!
