Create a #strikingly website on your computer

We all have a project that needs a website!

Some of us will think that creating a website is complicated but it all depends on the platforme you use. We have already talkeds of Wix that helps building websites but Strikingly will also help you.

Let see how strikingly wil help you:

  • Diffrent tampletes and styles are avalable
  • Audience analyse avalable
  • Action mobile (to help you build not only a website but website mobile friendly)

The only thing is that it takes time to use because there are so many parameters that can be used and to get throught all of them it takes time. Strikingly is worth-it, it will help you for your next project and will make it bigger.

Luxury #Hotel Guests Expect High Touch + Digital Services

Stay N Touch posted an excellent perspective on the paradox of luxury  hotel guests' service expectations.

In short - choice

  • High touch when they want it
  • Cutting edge digital services always accessible

Stay N Touch Blog Image

Hoteliers in the high end luxury sector need to get past the passé concept that self service digital is not valued by their guests - in fact, it is the opposite.

Key quote:
Horst Schulze, who made Ritz Carlton into a synonym for high end luxury, describes the paradox of delivery a luxury hospitality experience, “Highly active yet private, tranquil but exciting, confidently delivered but not arrogant, distinct while being familiar, all the latest technology yet feeling timeless, not trendy.”

#aliceapp aids Hoteliers - proactive use of data = save money

AliceApp staff member posted real life examples of how #hotels use available data to improve guest satisfaction and/or save money.

As a former GM, I was particularly impressed by this maintenance staff story:
On a hunch, a Maintenance Manager at a top NYC boutique hotel called ALICE’s analytics specialists and requested that they pull all of the internal tickets tagged “#fix: leaky faucet” over the past 6 months. As he had guessed, all of the requests were originating from the Southwest part of the building, focused around 10 floors. Upon further investigation, it turned out that there was corrosion in the pipes, and by taking proactive measures rather than passively waiting for a major issue, the hotel was able to save thousands of dollars and months of headache.
I will definitely be using these examples with my MBA students.

Here is the full post - How Hoteliers are Using Data to Improve their Operations.
