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.

Guest Service: Empowering People

Excellent customer service is vitally important in all businesses but it is especially important for hotels where customer service is the lifeblood of the business. Outstanding customer service is essential in creating new customers, retaining existing customers, and cultivating referrals for future customers. Employees who meet and exceed guest expectations are critical to a hotel's success, and it begins with the hiring process. It is imperative for HR personnel to screen for and hire people who inherently possess customer-friendly traits - empathy, warmth and conscientiousness - which allow them to serve guests naturally and authentically. Trait-based hiring means considering more than just a candidate's technical skills and background; it means looking for and selecting employees who naturally desire to take care of people, who derive satisfaction and pleasure from fulfilling guests' needs, and who don't consider customer service to be a chore. Without the presence of these specific traits and attributes, it is difficult for an employee to provide genuine hospitality. Once that kind of employee has been hired, it is necessary to empower them. Some forward-thinking hotels empower their employees to proactively fix customer problems without having to wait for management approval. This employee empowerment—the permission to be creative, and even having the authority to spend money on a customer's behalf - is a resourceful way to resolve guest problems quickly and efficiently. When management places their faith in an employee's good judgment, it inspires a sense of trust and provides a sense of higher purpose beyond a simple paycheck. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
