New App Helping Hotels During Lockdown
The app can be loaded up with comprehensive information about the hotel and the surrounding area, whetting the appetite of people who have booked – a clever countdown clock on the home screen also helps to increase the anticipation for hotel guests.
Two features of the app which hoteliers are particularly excited about is the 'Directory', which can include a room guide plus comprehensive information and images about restaurants/
Comments Alisdair Luxmoore, Director of Vamoos, "We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation with every hotel in the UK closed, and preparing for reopening with social distancing in July.
" Vamoos for Hotels means that by providing information ahead of the stay, guests get a chance to get excited ahead of their visit and can plan their trip. And hotel owners can use the messaging and notification system to help manage social distancing and be able to keep guests updated with the latest info post Covid-19.
"Because of the current situation, we have decided to let hotels have a free subscription for the rest of 2020, as they get back on their feet."
The app also enables hoteliers to wax lyrical about local places of interest, recommendations of places to eat, weather, maps, and anything else that they think might enhance the visitor experience.
Comments Jonathan Butterworth, Group Operations Director of the Lavender Hotels Group, which is trialling the app: "Vamoos is a great platform which will enable us to provide our customers with a quickly downloadable app in which to totally navigate around the facilities, places of interest and booking processes, at the tap of a screen.
"The added advantage is post COVID-19 the app will reduce a significant number of touch points as we strive to safeguard the customer. That, alongside the 'Do Not Disturb' function, messaging service to the hotel team and ability to provide links pre stay to check in remotely, will significantly help in our ability to deliver to the guest exactly what they require.
"Vamoos will also reduce the amount of notices, tent cards and posters that are required throughout the hotel, whilst saving us money at the same time."
