PurpleCloud's Free Covid Response Task Platform Receives Overwhelming Response

Industry's Sweeping Adoption of New Offering Demonstrates That Hotels Are Looking at Creative Options to Insure They Meet or Exceed Today's Enhanced Cleanliness and Sanitation Standards

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. June 11, 2020

After launching its free PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response) hotel task optimization platform just three weeks ago, PurpleCloud today announced it has received a fantastic response, with a potential total 24,000 rooms, in the process of ramping up. The interest has originated across the entire range of brands, asset classes and geographic regions.

A streamlined free version of its hotel task optimization platform, PurpleCloud's CR Task Platform helps hospitality organizations meet today's enhanced housekeeping and related cleaning protocols. It is practical, easy to train on and built on a proven platform, complete with written and spoken multi-language capabilities. While helping them immediately with the Covid-19 challenge, management will be able to appreciate the task strategies and work flows built into the full PurpleCloud platform.

The PurpleCloud CR 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 and 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.

A detailed overview of PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response) is available online. To sign up for the free service please visit the PurpleCloud CR web page.

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.
