Avoid the use of fake cards and save energy with Domotel

 

Domotel is an innovative product for running your hotel business. That is why we always try to go a step further to increase cost savings management and improve customer service. Similarly, our access control system optimizes the use of cards and helps you to control unnecessary energy expenditure.

Traditionally, front-desk staff gives a card to the guest. That card contain the access permissions physically. However, it is not like that with Domotel. Access permissions are introduced in the cards when the clients arrive and are cancelled when they leave the hotel. Then, the system can assign the same card for a new client in another room. That was designed in order to prevent the use of fake cards. Domotel will not allow the customer to activate the air conditioning or other services with other cards. This system helps to save energy costs in the hotel.

The cards used by our system are standard and easily replaceable. If they get lost, it can be found without problems. You can purchase it in any country and from any supplier.

If you want us to inform you about the advantages of our products, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will understand your needs better and we will agree how adapt Domotel to your hotel business.

 

Hotel check-in system by Domotel

 

During the check-in, client info is filled out automatically when the client introduces his ID card or passport in the kiosk scanner. If guest is new, the client form is filled out automatically. In both cases, a picture of the client's documentation just in case we need to indicate something to the client. (id card placed wrongly, unfocused etc.).

 

  1. The user has to select the room suggested by the kiosk (in those cases which the kiosk doesn't include a touch screen where the client can choose the room himself) and then press accept.
  2. In addition, the kiosk displays available services during the stay and the price for each one.
  3. It's possible to perform pre-payments and leave observations for a specific check-in.
  4. Each client can be assigned different permissions (configurable) to open specific facility doors, i.e. private cafeteria for hotel guests, or restrict access to pool or gym.

Domotel allows to establish fees for special offers

More and more people travel for work and often they stay less than one day in some cities. Moreover, during the summer, temperatures can be very high. In this situation tourists and business people need a place to spend the hottest hours (from 15:00 to 19:00) or to have a rest.

We can find examples of this in Seville. In this city the hoteliers agreed to provide rooms just for the hotest hours of the day. According to several internet forums, the potential users of this service would value speed to enter and leave the hotel, and agility managing the client's stay. This initiative has also spread to cities like Madrid and Barcelona.

Our PMS was designed to fast the check-in and check-out. We have already talk about our check-in and check-out kiosk in previous posts. Through it, guests may register themselves to take full advantage of those three or four hours. Similarly, they can go as easily as they came.

However, in this post, we want to focus on the way of rating rooms in this kind of situations. Our system allows you to customize these utilities to establish fees for rooms that will be occupied just for four hours. It works like that:

1. You have to enter in "Check-in" screen

2. You will find the "Time Slot" tab, where you can configure an option called "siesta" as you can see in the picture. With this option the system will automatically register that the room will be occupied just for three or four hours. It also will rate the room by default.


This is just one of the Domotel's utilities. Note that we are custom software developers, therefore we can provide the perfect product for you. If you need more information, please contact us.
