Resort and Hotel Mythbusters's comment, September 10, 2013 2:00 AM
Having technology breakthrough in hotel service iw what the industry need to improve their quality service. With this GuestService+ technology, hotels not only improve their guest service with new technology but also cut the cost of wages that always available 24/7 for the customers. This is the breakthrough that our industry need to be sustainable in the future, considering wages cost increase over the past 10 year.
Dominic Hudson & Hadrian Smith's curator insight, March 16, 2014 10:33 PM

This article discusses the innovative iPhone and iPad app by  Crave Interactive Ltd, where hotel and resort occupant have a fast, interactive and easy way to make the most out of their stay. This app can be utilised by any hotel as a means of quickly and efficiently communicating with their customers. By linking their credit card or PayPal, customers can order room service, pay for TV shows, movies and even pay their hotel bill with lining up. This new method is an incredibly modern adaption to the modern era of technology. I feel this could seen be the standard for hotels in the future where they will have to be using electronic ordering. It may even get the point where customers may choose one hotel over another because it doesn't have the Crave app (or any similar app). This idea is very profitable for both the app creator and the hotel because its encouraging quick and easy buys. This service may hurt the hospitality side of hotels with  decreasing need for people to be on the phones or at the computer to process payments.
