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."

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
