Travel Outlook Introduces Annette, The Virtual Hotel Agent™, Providing Instant Guest Service While Reducing Fixed Labor Expense

USA, Santa Fe, New Mexico. January 13, 2022

Travel Outlook the Premier Hotel Call Center™ ("Travel Outlook") announces the launch of the hotel industry's first AI-powered voice bot, purpose-built to reduce fixed labor costs with a distinct human touch: Annette (formerly “Bella” by Travel Outlook) , The Virtual Hotel Agent™ .

Annette can help hotels immediately address staffing issues and reduce fixed labor expense. Personalized in a human voice the hotel chooses, Annette can answer most of the calls now being handled by the front desk. To estimate the labor cost savings Annette can achieve, Travel Outlook has created a Annette Savings Tool on its website.

Annette has been programmed using a breakthrough approach to voice bots, a system built from human conversations. Using social media, chat forums, and movie dialogue, Annette learns from billions of casual human conversations to understand human inflections and multi-turn queries. This revolutionary approach means Annette understands callers no matter what they say, when they say it, or how they speak, in any language.

Annette can route calls and send follow-up texts, but her true value lies in her ability to answer the frequently asked questions unique to each hotel. Studies have shown that this can be up to 60% of a front desk's call volume, and in initial implementations, Annette has offered sterling performance.

Annette can also replace mechanical IVR answer points for the hotel. Rather than hearing, "press one for reservations", the caller hears, in a pleasant voice, "Thank you for calling our hotel. How can I help?" Then, Annette will answer many of the questions asked without any involvement from hotel staff, always offering immediate transfer-to-human option.

Hotels will be pleasantly surprised by Annette 's affordability, and getting underway with her technology is a simple online onboarding process.

A hotel does not have to be a Travel Outlook call center client to be able to use Annette . Please contact Kimberly Berry at Travel Outlook for a detailed demonstration of Annette's abilities and for affordable introductory pricing.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation


Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
