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.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
