Technology is changing the way we live and work. It is also transforming the tourism sector because many hotels are becoming sustainable thanks to technology.
In today’s post we will tell you what some of the technological trends in sustainable hotels are and what are the advantages of each of them.
Technology in the hotel industry
Cloud technology, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are changing the hotel industry, above all, because they simplify processes and make everything simpler, more convenient, and practical.
Embrace technology and retain interaction.
This is the key to all sustainable hotels, retaining human interaction while implementing new technologies with robots.
This is to maintain closeness with guests.
A clear example is chatbots and virtual assistants, which can converse with users while customizing interactions to make them as close as possible.
We will explain later how the virtual assistant solution works.
Technology and its direct impact on hotel revenues
One of the benefits of implementing new technology is that it automatically improves the guest experience.
And by offering better guest experiences, hotel revenue increases.
This is because guests start requesting more services within the hotel and tend to return because they want to repeat that experience.
The important thing is to implement technology effectively to make it work.
Technology trends for sustainable hotels
Here are some technology trends for sustainable hotels that are revolutionizing the tourism sector.
It’s all about digitizing rooms to create a better experience, for example, guests could regulate the temperature of their room from their cell phone.
Another trend is voice recognition technology that allows turning on or off TVs, among others.
Conserving energy by making use of technology
Energy management is one of the key factors in sustainable hotels.
This allows hotel owners to save considerably on electricity bills.
According to a report by Booking.com, 65% of travelers worldwide prefer to stay in a green hotel.
Technology clearly helps to make your hotel sustainable by using energy-efficient practices.
For this you can implement smart thermostats, eco-laundries, energy efficient appliances, among others, to help save energy and water consumption.
Mobiles for access control
There are functionalities that can be adopted from a cell phone that help guests to access their room without a key, simply by using the keypad of their cell phone through a mobile application.
When processes are systematized through cloud-based technology, capital investment is reduced and operational flexibility is provided.
This means that you can run operations such as managing reservations, among many other activities from anywhere, because everything is in the cloud.
This means that you can run your hotel from anywhere, at any time and with just a few clicks, thus reducing manual operations time.
Switching to cloud-based hotel PMS is one of the most requested technology upgrades by leading hoteliers. If you haven’t made the switch, now is the right time.
When data is properly collected and analyzed it drives hotel growth and improves the guest experience.
Artificial intelligence also simplifies the tasks that are performed within a hotel and helps it to become sustainable.
Increase your hotel’s revenue by making use of technology
Guest demand is becoming more and more demanding, and hotels continue to look for ways to increase their revenue.
Becoming a sustainable hotel, i.e., environmentally responsible, will make guests prefer to stay there, while contributing to an increase in ROI.
