New Delhi, November 2020: The opening of the hotel industry in COVID times has led to a change in the way business is being conducted, and also the expectations of consumers. The hotel & travel industry is witching over to contactless experiences thus leading to innovating & adopting technology solutions.
Keeping in tune with the times, LingerTech, a cloud-based integrated hospitality management technology start-up has launched a one-shop-solution to optimize entire property management processes. Their package will help small and medium hotels to adopt technology easily and seamlessly. This will enable budget hospitality groups to offer a contactless hotel experience to their customers at an affordable cost. LingerTech aims to equip the Indian Hospitality Industry with technology to enable them to meet the “traveling in the COVID era” challenge head-on.
The company is the following digital facilities: self-check-in, check-out, contact-less food menu, contact-less lift operation within the hotel. This Property Management System (PMS) offers digital communication and touch-less support to the hotel staff.
The other services included in the technology include real-time inventory & rate management, thus increasing the opportunity of maximizing bookings without overbooking errors. With market dynamics changing, the ‘dynamic’ pricing tool helps the hotel automate pricing based on availability and seasonality. The hotels can also pre-fix their pricing, and this system will do the job as automated.
Moreover, hotel owners can boost their business by using data analytics as a tool and generating comprehensive reports like Lead time, Nationality Breakdown, Room Type Reports, ADR, LOS, etc.
According to Sandeep Kumar, Founder, LingerTech, “All reports indicate that Hotels opting to use cloud-based technology PMS will grow by leaps and bounds in India. Technology will be key to the revival of the travel segment, enabling hotels who use it properly to better manage demand generation in an online world and reconnect with their customers.
“With rapid changes happening across the industry, our tech solution can be a gamechanger. The industry will have to make quick changes to adapt to this very volatile situation and keep themselves relevant. Technology is the key to most things now.”
