The COVID-19 pandemic has abysmally affected several industries across the world and the hotel industry is among the hardest hit. However, despite being among the first ones to witness the bad weather conditions, the hotel industry is doing every possible bit to remain strong and recover as quickly as possible. The industry has shown a great maturity level — hotels are working together, showing their true hospitality commitments in helping out the society where they can.
Now, as the COVID graph has started to flatten, the industry is slowly getting back to business. But the rules of the game have changed – today, travellers are not only looking for best rates but also looking for a safer stay. And for that, the industry is adapting to the new normal with a completely new set of health and safety protocols.
To make social distancing and hotel operations go hand-in-hand, hotels are doubling down on the latest technologies such as contactless check-in and check-out.
However, it is not just the guests, the hotel staff must also maintain social distancing and one of the first steps to go about it is by eliminating classroom-based staff training. Also, when your hotel staff is not taking dedicated classroom training, they are available for solving guest queries and delivering great customer experience.
Now, many might argue that it is important for the staff to know the know-how of hotel operations. Well, there is a solution to that too — Auto Learning.
Contactless Learning With A.C.E
Over the past few years, the automation space has evolved tremendously — it is being used in several industries. Talking specifically about the hospitality industry, hotel automation solutions are emerging as a focal point and have already started to make an impact.
Amid this COVID chaos and changing health and safety protocols, it is crucial that hotels turn to technologies that provide auto-learning for staff training.
Auto learning systems and contactless learning are proved to be efficient in “learning by doing,” when it comes to training your staff. These systems walk you through the process of training your staff to utilize the software that streamlines areas of operation. Also, it eliminates the need for classroom seminars, e-learning modules, or implementation and then on-the-go training. Rather, it offers robust answers as needed.
It not only helps in training your staff but also ensures that the staff is able to give full attention to their guests and not the computer screens in front of them.
