HOSPITALITY MOBILITY

Mobility and Mobile Solutions: Way Forward for African Hotel Industry

L

ike any other technology platform, mobile technology has also impacted the hotel industry world-wide. Hotels across Africa too have understood growing prominence of mobile solutions and have been taking concrete steps towards integrating the same into their daily work process. The mobile story in Africa 1A recently concluded Ericsson Mobility Report shows that there were around 910 million mobile subscribers in Africa by the Q1 of 2015. The survey also expects that African continent will witness a 70% smartphone penetration by 2020. The reason can be attributed the availability of affordable smartphones. 2In addition to this, access of internet via mobile phone in the continent is expected to grow 20-fold by 2019/2020.

Impact of mobile technology on hotel industry Today, due to its wide spread usage, mobile technology plays a major role in hotel business and its operations. A wellresearched and appropriate implementation of mobile technology can help hoteliers witness enhanced guest engagement and higher efficiency.

Users too are using their internet enabled devices to buy hospitality products quite frequently. For guests/travelers, mobile technology does wonders. Empowered with internet enabled smartphones, a traveler prefers to ‘go mobile’ in every aspect of his/her travel plan.

Hotels operating in a competitive market like Africa can leverage advanced mobile technology to interact and reach out to potential customers. Mobile technology is also a key platform for hoteliers in Africa to communicate with prospective guests while promoting their services.

Right from selecting a hotel by reading guest reviews to checking out room photographs and booking, everything can be done with a mobile phone. The growth rate of mobile phones and mobility technology provides enormous opportunity to hoteliers reduce the gap between them and their customers.

Mobile technology is getting traction in the hospitality business as most of the mobile phone users are increasingly accessing internet via their devices.

rules regarding hygiene, sanitation and safety. Being in violation of any rule can lead to fines and legal liability, and perhaps even more importantly, can ruin a restaurant’s reputation.

7. Pricing

Not every item on the menu will be equally profitable, but one needs to make sure that items are priced to avoid loss. The cost of food will fluctuate over time, meaning one will need to cushion his prices to maintain profitability – and monitor the suppliers like a hawk. If in doubt, price high to start off with and attract customers with introductory deals and discounts. That way a restaurateur sets his customers’ expectations of higher pricing to come, but still make it cost-effective for them to try out initially.

Hospitality Tips for Achieving Top Rated Customer Satisfaction

ven during a global recession, the hotel industry can thrive and often continue to grow by improving their customer satisfaction and customer service.

and reviews will do better holding the attention of an online shopper. The online shopper should be able to look and book quickly with minimum hassle.

People are still traveling for business or pleasure and looking for the best values for their money. Competition for new customers in the hotel industry worldwide is high and repeat business is always desired.

Customers often have special needs such as handicapped accessible rooms. The best websites provide a booking interface allowing the customer to make special requests, again with minimum hassle.

Customer satisfaction has to be one everyone’s mind as they begin the work day. These days, customers start their hotel searches online and spend time comparing prices and reading reviews.

“Customer satisfaction is about being available where, when, and how customers want. “

If the customer is a Smartphone or tablet user, the time spent studying and reviewing various choices increases, meaning hospitality impressions begin long before the customer walks through the door. So how does a hotel, independent or chain, satisfy customers and win repeat business? 1) Great customer websites improve customer experience Customer satisfaction extends beyond the human interaction. Customer satisfaction is affected by your digital online presence. With customers getting their first information about hotels online, the most successful hotels have stand-out websites that are also easy to navigate. Websites with numerous photos, clear directions including maps, nearby points of interest, good restaurants

A direct phone number to the hotel is a must, Many customers research online but call to book. The availability of personal interaction is the key in this case. Personnel handling booking calls should be friendly, helpful and well versed in the policies and amenities the hotel offers. A high satisfaction level at this point can positively set the tone for the customer’s stay. 2) Guest satisfaction improves when you know your customer Customer satisfaction is more than just a smile when you greet a customer. It’s more than customer satisfaction surveys and customer

satisfaction tips. Knowing the customer base is at the heart of it. A customer booking a stay at a beachside resort has different expectations than a customer staying in a convention hotel. When you learn to master the needs of the customer and to deliver consistently and effectively on those needs you begin to create overwhelming customer loyalty. Good hotel management and staff recognize this and provide appropriate the expected services and even throw in some extra options that customer may not be thinking about. A family friendly beachside hotel might offer poolside games and activities while the convention hotel caters primarily to businessmen by making sure they provide top-notch amenities such as reliable internet Wi-Fi, Vision conference equipment, and excellent audio system. 3) Improve customer satisfaction by addressing customer complaints quickly Service recovery is the last line of defense to your customer satisfaction. The hotel industry can be a tough one with requests and complaints coming in online, by phone, email or in person with the guest leaning over the welcome desk. One of the key responsibilities of any guest services manager or customer service leader is customer satisfaction measurement. By addressing requests quickly, a hotel will have fewer complaints. When asking the hospitality staff for an extra pillow, blanket or batteries for a dead remote, a guest expects

Take the extra step to follow hotel management companies with solid management procedures to help you put these proper procedures in place. However, a staff well versed in positive customer satisfaction creating policy coupled with a strong sense of knowing customer needs and pride in job performance will create an environment that draws people in and leaves them with a lasting good impression.

This isn’t to say a well-run hotel will never get bad reviews. A certain percentage of customers will complain no matter what. Use these opportunities to learn from what disappointed customers and structure your system on how to achieve customer satisfaction around the positive and negative reviews.

4) Train your staff on improving customer service When management provides a well-trained staff with an emphasis on working together for the benefit of the customer, a hotel runs more smoothly and this translated to greater customer satisfaction. The constant goal in the mind of all staff members should be centered on customer satisfaction. Customers in the hotel industry are notorious for high expectations and complaints. A staff well trained in managing complaints, but more importantly avoiding them in the first place, will do better overall.

5) Track, analyze and report on customer satisfaction Customer satisfaction will often times be tied to your level of customer communication. By creating a dialogue with customers, hotel management can see strong points and weak spots in customer service. Feedback can be gathered online in review section of websites combined with review cards in room and front desk logs. These tools, used correctly, can be extremely helpful in staff meetings and training sessions, and at the management level for implementing policy. There are a number of customer satisfaction tracking companies and tools available. Some of these other tools include analysis of how customers’ book and what led these customers to choose a particular hotel versus a similar one down the street. Gathering this type of information with hotel reservation service tools and using it properly can be a huge plus in gaining new customers and keeping existing ones. The hotel industry is thriving yet competitive. Hotel customers want exactly what they expect whether it’s a simple clean room and good night’s rest or an artfully decorated clean room with numerous amenities. When management has a well-trained staff taking pride in customer recognition and customer satisfaction, the hotel will earn new and repeat customers.

HOSPITALITY TRENDS

Emerging Trends in Tourism: Striking Balance

between the Human Role and Technology

Severin Sea Lodge – Ecotourism Enterprise of the Year – 2014. The 10th Edition of the Eco-Warriors Award Ceremony Gala Night will be held on Friday 16th October 2015.

T

he latest trend in tourism is travel that is rapidly moving past the conventional means in response to a growing market; where in one way or the other, technology will be consumed. This has indeed called industry players to re-invent their business ideals, or risk growing redundant. While the place of soft skills and personalization cannot be entirely replaced by technology, its worth of note that these two aspects have become the inseparable components of the current market mix, for any success story. A report by the World Travel Monitor® notes that traditional business trips are now highly rivalled by the MICE industry (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions),forcing operators to step up their products models to meet the growing demand. Where a spacious room with horse-shoe set up of banqueting chairs and a white board sufficed just enough, the era is now replaced by a call for teleconferencing, robust Wi-Fi, data and voice connection points, panel displays, and integrated sound system among other aspects.

Undoubtedly the decline in traditional business trips is largely impacted by lack of implementation and adaption of technological solutions.

best what you have, and garnish it with memorable customer experience. “Do not focus on what you wish to offer, but on what the customer wishes for”

In the same breath, the report also observes a sharp decline in countryside tourism owing to the same (tech) challenges, with travelers seeming to have a renewed and rapidly growing interest in urban tourism.

The role of ecotourism Kenya is well recognized within and beyond the region for spear heading global campaigns in support of ecotourism. Embedded on responsible travel and environmental conservation, ecotourism seeks to preserve the natural world while protecting the wellness of the people.

This is very much influenced by new travel habits; whether on WIFI, DSL, and cable or on flight mode, travelers no longer plug out. The very basics of communication stems from technology, and experience sharing has seen another era through the various channels involved. This may lead one to wonder what exactly the future holds for county tourism; which has recently attracted massive investments in a bid to woo new regional and global. As Nafisa Fazal, head of Marketing for online travel firm, Jovago.com explains, ‘it’s not about being the biggest anymore, but giving the best in terms of both product and experience’ This, she cites is the primary factor in getting tourists to look your way; harness to the

INSIGHT HOTELIER - Edition 05| Nov 16th 2015 - Feb 15th, 2016

In contrast to traditional times where visitors would feel encouraged to carry with them ‘souvenirs and keepsakes’ worth memories of their visits, this form of sustainable tourism only recommends photographs as the acceptable takeaway for tourists, and footprints as the commendable leave-in. Other aspects of ecotourism include use of natural and locally available building materials, hiring local guides, charity and donation to local courses and strict adherence to nature’s holding capacity.

HELLO MOMBASA!!

S

lujan Events is pleased to organize 2nd Coast region’s hotel suppliers’ exhibition - the Mombasa Hotel Show 2015.

This is the number one expo for hotel suppliers who specialize in kitchens, bathrooms, facilities management, technology, security, hotel services, fit out, operating equipment and supplies, HORECA, interiors, lighting and design, hotel build or leisure and outdoor. Supply chain management is a critical component of service delivery in the Hotel Industry. Increasingly, hotels are looking for the most efficient ways to procure supplies as they reduce costs. The show running on the theme, “Getting Back on Track”, is aimed at giving our local hotels, lodges and restaurants an edge by providing a platform to engage and interact with product suppliers and service providers.

Lucy Gacheru - Director Slujan Events

With over 2,500 hotel and tourism professionals expected to visit the event over the next 3 days, it offers a forum to do business with key buyers from leading hotels, lodges and hospitality establishments including; owners, operators, managers, consultants and developers. After a successful 2014 show with the support of the Department of Tourism and Culture Development, Mombasa County and Kenya Association of Hotel Keepers & Caterers (KAHC), we are sure the show is bigger and better as we offer a host of new exhibits, features and even better professional seminars. As we showcase the 2nd show of this nature in Mombasa, we say a huge thank you to all our exhibitors who have shown confidence in us and supported us, our partners and sponsors for believing in the Mombasa Hotel Show and most of all, the Mombasa County Government for the great support and guidance. We see this as a great step towards presenting Mombasa as a prime business and investment destination. Let’s get back on the global arena as a leading travel, leisure and business destination – let’s get back on track KARIBUNI SANA! Learn, Interact, Procure ….and Network. We are glad to host you.
