Eric Rogers, Vice President EMEA, FCS Computer Systems told delegates at the 2016 Executive Housekeepers Conference that, “90% of travellers avoided booking a hotel if it was labelled as dirty online.”
Rogers also revealed that 70% of hotel guests claim that cleanliness and hygiene are the most important factor for a hotel. He explained: “If cleanliness standards fall below the expected standard required by guests then 44% of visitors will never return to the same property.”
Revealing why automated housekeeping solutions help lighten the load, Rogers added: “The benefits of housekeeping automation are clear, it helps enhance guest satisfaction throigh quicker cleaned room turnaround. Housekeepers can also view the most up-to-date information from PMS for example, the cleaning status, room status and inventory etc, not to mention, automated solutions save manpower, time and energy for cost optimisation.”
