Free Digital Messaging Tool and Training Course on Guest Communications and Digital Hotel Services

Sweden, Malmo, Malmo. April 02, 2020

Bookboost stands with the hospitality industry to provide the assistance it can at this time making its Web Messenger and Unified Inbox available for free.

Hotels have and continue to take great pressure in guest communication with staff managing a huge number of guest enquiries relating to bookings, cancellations, postponements, local travel restrictions and what the property is doing in response to Covid-19, especially for current guests.

Bookboost knows this will continue for a few more months as guests seek clarification and confidence in their bookings, and hotels look for demand to return. Therefore to help reduce the impact on operations, increase efficiency and deliver guests a better experience - hotels can sign up to Bookboost Unified Inbox for free for three months until 30th June 2020 using the promo code: WeWinThisBattleTogether

Hotels can use Bookboost to provide relevant up-to-date information on their website to answer frequently asked questions automatically and through Facebook and email using automated responses and preset answers. As well as have use of the single inbox to ensure ongoing customer service at this difficult time - it includes an automated website chatbot and dashboard to access and respond to all messages.

Hoteliers can increase working efficiency by reducing time spent on repetitive enquiries enabling them to focus on tasks that are more demanding. With Bookboost hotels can:

  • Manage all enquiries and be service-ready 24/7

  • Assign tasks to the most relevant available person or hotel department

  • Personalise messages to each guest

  • Set up automated responses to FAQs with preset answers

In addition, Bookboost will be running a free training course on guest communications and digital guest services to prepare hotels for the return of demand and deliver an enhanced guest experience.

Bookboost's guest messaging platform integrates messages from various communication channels (website, email, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram etc) into a unified inbox for one or multiple properties.

"We are a company specialising in digital guest communication and we'd like to offer what we have to help hoteliers better communicate with guests. We will be working with the hotel industry to get through this difficult period of time," said Daan de Bruijn, CEO of Bookboost. "I am confident that by sticking together, we will win this battle against the coronavirus and the travel industry will be able recover quicker to bring back demand."

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
