Maestro PMS eLearning Simplifies Training, Boosts Staff Productivity for Independents

"Anytime" Online Tutorials Give Hotel Teams an Effective Way to Learn Property Software Fast, Gain Confidence in Operations

MARKHAM, ON. August 10, 2017 - When an independent operator hires staff, they want their new team members to start fast. With a legacy of providing PMS spanning more than 30 years, Maestro’s team understands the needs of hotel operations and systems training. That is why they built online tutorials and eLearning functionality into their family of 20+ Maestro PMS property software solutions. Maestro’s eLearning system helps property staff and managers gain confidence in property software system use so they can focus on guest needs as quickly as possible.

“When we converted from another sales and catering to Maestro our team had to learn a new system. Maestro’s eLearning Web Tutorials helped us learn how to use the system, and showed the ‘why’ behind Maestro’s functionality so we understood the system and how to best use it to serve guests, ” said Susan Corrigan, Director of Sales at Pocono Manor Resort and Spa. “When I saw how well Maestro’s eLearning courses worked to show my team how to use the system I asked them all to take the tutorials as part of their job.”

Many operators incorporate Maestro’s eLearning training courses into property instruction guides to train new staff quickly and efficiently. Maestro eLearning offers 31 courses that are fully-integrated with the Maestro Front Office System and its other modules.

eLearning is a standard part of Maestro’s free Diamond Plus Service and includes “anywhere – anytime” online webinars. “Maestro’s Diamond Plus service offering includes 24/7 help desk access, free version upgrades and eLearning to help Maestro users develop skill and confidence in their ability to get the maximum benefit from their system, ” said Maestro PMS President Warren Dehan. “We continuously ask our clients for insights on how we can make Maestro stronger. We developed our eLearning functionality to address the staff training challenge many independent operators face.”

eLearning is integrated with Maestro so staff can get quick answers to system questions while they are on the job. They can pause the training session and try out the function in a training version or on the live software. Hotel staff can also take system courses when they are off property from Maestro’s eLearning website. The system tracks which courses staff members take, what lessons they complete and their scores on proficiency exams.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
