PurpleCloud Donates Free Covid Response Task Platform to Provide Hotels With Enhanced Cleaning and Safety Protocols

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. May 04, 2020

PurpleCloud today announced the release of PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response), a streamlined free version of its hotel task optimization platform, designed to help hospitality organizations meet today's enhanced cleaning and safety protocols. PurpleCloud Technologies CEO and Co-Founder Adria Levtchenko made the announcement.

PurpleCloud CR is pre-loaded with expert materials to help hospitality teams jump start housekeeping programs, which will be especially useful as hotels ramp up occupancy or reopen in the future. The platform includes comprehensive training materials that operate on tablets, smartphones or computers already owned by the hotel organization or its team members. It does not require any hardware or software investment.

The PurpleCloud CR platform can be easily customized to individual property, brand or regulatory standards. Users of PurpleCloud CR are able to:

• Complete COVID-19 checklists following Ecolab and CDC guidelines;

• View COVID-19 training materials;

• Send messages to departments or associates directly in order to avoid face-to-face communication;

• Send and view images of items around the property;

• Print or export checklist results to guests for full transparency of safety measures;

• Go "on break" in a timed manner to avoid overcrowding; and

• Conduct contact tracing should a guest or staff member become ill.

"PurpleCloud is committed to doing whatever we can to help our industry overcome the challenges that we all face as the result of Covid-19. We decided to make PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response) available at no cost so that any hotel can use it as a tool to scale up their new policies, procedures and operations to protect guests, staff and any visitors to a property," Levtchenko said. "Overall, the platform can introduce new operating efficiencies, audit functions and team member engagement, even as we are tasked with doing more," Levtchenko said.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
