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."

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
