PurpleCloud Adds Required Training Module to Free Covid Response Task Platform

Need to Document all Required Covid-19 Training Programs Prompts PurpleCloud to Add New Tool Allowing Hoteliers to Track Progress and Successful Completion of all Instructional Segments

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. August 18, 2020

PurpleCloud today announced that it has added a new section to PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response) that enables users to complete all required training sessions and provides supervisors the tools to insure that the requirements have been met.

"PurpleCloud CR can now help hotels better assign and track the completion of today's greatly expanded training programs, which help ensure a safe environment for staff and guests," PurpleCloud CEO and Co-founder Adria Levtchenko explained, "In addition to brand audits, the data collected will also help supervisors track trends that can lead to more efficient training programs."

A streamlined free version of its hotel task optimization platform, PurpleCloud CR (Covid Response) 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.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
