Housekeeping has always been the unseen hand behind the hotel curtain, the Wizard of Oz of hospitality. For many GM’s, the presence of a highly skilled Executive Housekeeper is the essential ingredient for confidence and quality. In reality, housekeeping is too important to be totally delegated to the housekeeping function. After all, it is the epicentre of the guest experience. Innovative technology has recently become available that focuses on hotel housekeeping and brings it into the 21st century. The results of its implementation in all cases have been positive, in some cases transformative, by measurably increasing efficiency while improving staff morale, reducing queues and increasing guest satisfaction, and raising quality standards. A number of prominent hotel executives share their personal experiences in the journey of introducing technology to housekeeping.
Optii Solutions (Optii) CEO, Soenke Weiss discusses the future direction of housekeeping and the increasing impact of technology.
BRISBANE: Optii Solutions (Optii) today announced that its market leading hotel housekeeping management software has been chosen by Élan Hotels to power housekeeping operations in its soon to open Élan Soho Suites, Darwin. Australia’s newest hotel group, Élan Hotels, chose Optii Keeper to optimise all aspects of housekeeping operations, acknowledging Optii’s combination of patented technology and best practice management principles as the preeminent solution on the market.
Optii Solutions launches next generation of Optii Keeper in the battle against ‘breaking point’. Australia: Optii Solutions (Optii), the global leader in housekeeping optimisation, today announced the launch of a significant upgrade of its groundbreaking solution, Optii Keeper. Already the world’s leading housekeeping management system, Optii Keeper builds on the current strengths of streamlining productivity, dynamically managing labour in real-time and improving the quality and turnaround of clean rooms.
For decades, the hospitality industry has paid room attendants (RA's) based on the number of rooms they have cleaned (often referred to as the ‘credit system’). There is some logic to this, after all, shouldn't an RA who cleans many rooms earn more than someone who cleans a few? The answer is a resounding 'no'! Simply put, not all room 'cleans' are created equal.
Paul Mansi, COO of Edwardian Group, London, oversaw the implementation of Optii Keeper in the group’s 14 hotels in 2011. We talked to him about the impact on the business and how this transformed the level of service the front desk could offer guests.
In colour psychology, Magenta is 'an instrument of change and transformation; it helps us release old patterns that prevent development and aids us in moving forward'. It therefore seemed logical that Optii chose the name 'Magenta' to describe its next generation release of Optii Keeper. Already the world’s leading housekeeping management system, Optii Keeper just got even more responsive. Building on its current strengths of streamlining productivity, dynamically managing labour and improving the quality and turnaround of clean rooms, we are proud to have been working with our customers to incorporate their valued feedback to ensure that this is a solution with unparalleled depth in the market. In terms of automation, efficiency, functionality and all with minimal administration, ‘Magenta’ is a paradigm shift in housekeeping management.
