Hotel statistics analysis power

Setting achievable goals and continously measure how your self-service investment performs is one of our 12 commandments.  The 12 commandments are a set of recommendations we created based on more than 20 years of experience with self-service technology for the hospitality industry. 
This article lists some of the key data to keep an eye on, and how to define targets.

The Power of Statistics in Self Service Operations

 

  1. Performance Monitoring

    To continuously track the performance of self-check-in kiosks, leveraging statistics is essential. Monitor metrics such as usage rates, successful check-ins, and technical issues to guarantee smooth functionality. When considering the purchase of a self-check-in kiosk, monitoring these statistics is the key to evaluating its performance.

  2.  Statistics Analysis

    You can gain valuable insights into how guests engage with the kiosks through analysis. This includes identifying common user pathways, pinpointing potential areas where guests may encounter difficulties, and recognizing opportunities for enhancement. Such information is invaluable for refining and optimizing the user experience.

  3. Operational efficiency

    Statistics can shed light on how kiosks affect your hotel's operational efficiency. By measuring the time guests save through self-check-in compared to traditional arrivals, you can make informed decisions regarding staffing levels and resource allocation.

  4. Maintenance and support

    Keeping an eye on statistics can facilitate proactive support. By pinpointing patterns of technical issues or errors through data analysis, you can swiftly address problems, minimize downtime, and ensure a seamless guest experience.

  5. Financial impact

    Statistics can also provide valuable insights into the financial impact of self-check-in kiosks. Monitoring metrics like room occupancy rates and revenue generated from upsells or additional services offered through the kiosks enables you to gauge their contribution to the hotel's overall financial performance.

  6. Return on Investment

    ROI Calculation: Investing in self-check-in kiosks represents a substantial financial commitment. To guarantee a favorable return on investment (ROI), analyzing statistics pertaining to reduced labor costs, enhanced room occupancy, and elevated guest satisfaction is imperative. Conducting a comprehensive ROI assessment will empower you to make a well-informed and confident decision when choosing the ideal kiosk solution for your hotel.

    Make sure to ask for a custom ROI analysis when in contact with our sales team.


  7. Adaptation and improvement 

    Leveraging statistics empowers you to make data-driven decisions for future enhancements. Should specific kiosk features or services require more utilization, you can tailor your offerings accordingly. Likewise, if usage trends evolve over time, you can modify the kiosks to better align with changing guest preferences and needs.

3 Smart Key Phases: Define, Measure, and Adapt



  1. Define

    When implementing self-check-in kiosks, it's essential to determine your primary objectives. Are you aiming to reduce staff workload, enhance the guest experience, or increase operational efficiency? Clearly defining your goals is critical, as it will serve as a guiding light for your decision-making process and ensure that the selected kiosk solution aligns seamlessly with your hotel's overarching objectives.

  2. Measure

    Once your self-check-in kiosks are operational, you must keep monitoring and assessing their performance against your predetermined objectives. Questions to consider include: Are you achieving the anticipated reduction in check-in time? Are guest satisfaction scores showing improvement? Your established goals serve as a benchmark for success, enabling you to make any necessary adjustments to reach your desired outcomes.

  3. Adapt

    The hotel industry is dynamic, with guest preferences evolving over time. Having a set of objectives allows you to adapt your self-check-in kiosk strategy as needed. Whether it involves updating kiosk software to offer new services or expanding the kiosk network, your goals empower you to remain agile and responsive to your guests' changing needs and expectations.
