HUB Buildings & HiJiffy Partner to Offer a Stronger and Efficient Solution in Response to Guests' Needs in the New Era

Spain, Girona, Catalonia. October 28, 2020

The powerful operational management system HUB Buildings joins forces with the most innovative communication platform for hotels, HiJiffy, to enhance the guest experience and support hotel staff with their duties.

In this new world of contactless technology, guests still want to feel welcomed, acknowledged, and most importantly, safe. New challenges are constantly appearing across different hotel departments, bringing an urgent need for solutions such as HUB and HiJiffy, to provide guests with an easy and contactless way to communicate with the hotel, many of the operational processes are fully automated, delivering a higher quality service, one that is proved to be exceptionally difficult given the current climate.

HiJiffy provides an AI chatbot that can reply to clients' inquiries and guests' requests efficiently and in a matter of seconds, automated response rates by 80%. This is crucial as many hotels are understaffed and guests' requests are becoming more and more complex.

Meanwhile, HUB Buildings offer hoteliers a strong tool to manage hotel operations the right way. Thanks to the different modules available such as housekeeping and maintenance, hotels can improve the efficiency of their daily operations, easier and faster. By reducing response times and successfully addressing clients' requests, hotels are increasing their online reputation while significantly reducing the operational costs.

How does it work?

Thanks to the partnership between HUB Buildings and HiJiffy, hotel guests can make a request at any time through HiJiffy's virtual concierge. The requests can be made through various platforms, such as Whatsapp, and of course, such requests will be fully automated.

Through this integration, guest requests (be it cleaning, amenities/towels requests, or incidents such as a broken TV/lightbulb) are sent to HUB and automatically assigned to the corresponding department, reducing response times and improving significantly the guest experience.

Once the request is completed, the guest is informed that the fault is fixed or that their amenities have been delivered.

HiJiffy CEO, Tiago Araújo, said "HiJiffy and HUB Buildings working together enables hotels to improve their operations and enrich the guest experience. We're super eager to develop additional features together, allowing hotels to be more and more digital and efficient".

HUB Buildings CEO, Alex Ridaura, comments "The communication with HiJiffy will allow us to create automatic tasks, further streamlining hotel operations. I'm excited to be working alongside the HiJiffy team to find new features that allow us to increasingly improve our customers' operations."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
