Robiotic Launches Maidsafe – the First Mobile System for Hotels That Combines Realtime Room Status Reporting With a Panic Button

Smarter Hotel Housekeeping Finally Made Safe

USA , Frisco , Texas. February 20, 2019

ROBIOTIC announces the availability of the MaidSafe Barcode Scanning systems that provides real time information regarding the status of room cleanliness & availability with a pocket size panic button for cleaning and room staff.

Extremely easy to use, this small user-friendly device requires virtually no training. After the housekeeper scans a discrete bar code label on the room door or entrance way, the MaidSafe device automatically transmits the data to the hotel's Property Management System (PMS) and booking systems via a mobile communication network, with a permanent "virtual dedicated line" that ensures constant connectivity. To verify the scan was successfully transmitted, the device can provide user feedback by LED, vibration, and/or sound, and gives the housekeeper the OK to safely enter the room and begin cleaning.

The system instantly shows the operations and front desk teams that cleaning procedures have begun. When housekeeping leaves the room, they scan again, showing the room has been completed. As a result, the front desk can see an indicator of all rooms that are ready at any given time, ensuring guests need not wait longer than necessary to get into a clean room.

MaidSafe ensures that operational staff can easily and ACCURATELY monitor which rooms need cleaning and can re-prioritize as needed, while also tracking cleaning metrics like time-to-clean. This information can produce better internal data to track cleaning times and identify gaps in performance, workers, floor routes, or inventory. Hotels can use this information to increase cleaning efficiency and productivity.

MaidSafe Panic Button Provides Safety

In addition, MaidSafe provides a critical Panic Button capability. If housekeepers encounter an unsafe situation, they can push the panic button on the MaidSafe, which can attach to their wrists with a cord or fit inside a pocket so it's always with them. The button push sets a chain reaction of events into motion, starting with messages to the security team, front desk, and potentially the alarm system (if desired). Since the device will have already scanned the room's barcode, security will know the exact location and can send someone to investigate immediately. Even if no incident occurs, the device gives the housekeepers peace of mind and the confidence to focus fully on cleaning, without being distracted by fears of someone hiding in the bathroom or around the corner.

"ROBIOTIC's new MaidSafe is an easy to implement, easy to integrate and easy to use solution that solves several major issues that impact today's hospitality businesses," says Managing Partner Florian Schwingenschloegl. "MaidSafe does it all: help clean rooms, clean up operational inefficiencies, and respond to dirty-minded guests who might threaten staff members."

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. 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.
