As a back-of-the house department, Housekeeping seems like not an important department. Indeed, it is. Housekeeping department maintains the appearance of the hotel toward their customer through public area, lobby, lounge and especially room which related directly to customer experience. Developing techonology within the hotel need to address the function of HouseKeeping department for them to communicate with other department immediate if there is any problems, breakage, damage in the hotel to address guest needs, maintain and enhance the hotel apperance.

Housekeeping target is not only meeting the hygiene standard but it also concerns with time efficient. With the help of high-tech, housekeepers now can increase their performance with less time consuming. for instance, instead of looking for level leader to report any problem, they can now use the room phone and follow through a protocol to identify that specific problem. The report immediately alerts the proper engineer via the engineer's wireless phone. Housekeeper also use the ipod touch which has the room lists with all guest information. Furthermore, they can also up to date with the in and out flow in the hotels to avoid annoying knocks on the doors and waiting time. it can be said that, applying hi-tech can make a revolution in houskeeping department in the upcoming future.

This is a good article about using high technology in housekeeping communication. Applying high-tech into housekeeping department is a great idea as it helps housekeepers to do their works more efficient with less time consuming. Housekeepers' job need not only to meet the hygiene standard but also time efficient. In fact, in Richardson's lecture (2015), housekeeping department is considered the most vital department in a hotel. By using high-tech devices to communicate, housekeepers are able to know whether they can go into the room to clean or not. Chand (2013) stated that "a hotel is the ultimate place for a traveller to be at peace during his stay". Therefore, using high technology in housekeeping department also helps customers to avoid annoying knocks on the doors (Ward, 2013). Furthermore, housekeepers can also up to date with the in and out flows of guests in the hotels so that they can manage their time more efficient (Chand, 2013). Additionally, the housekeepers can be alerted by the devices to know where the problems are in the rooms. In conclusion, I think that applying hi-tech can make a revolution in cleaning and maintenance in houskeeping department in the upcoming future.

Using advanced technology in hotel industry has become one of the new trends in the recent years. Many hotels around the world are applying high technology in many sector of the business. In this article, Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, NC in taking as an example for using the latest technology for housekeeping sector in the market. By using sensor system, when guests are required for room cleaning, the staffs can take the shortest time to response. Staffs can also alert when the rooms are available for cleaning. This system helps a lot for hotel in using their staffs effectively and sufficiently. Not only benefit for housekeeping, technology can also apply for many other departments such as booking system. In customer perspective, it is easy for them to track down the available room and price as well as to compare between each other. In term of hotel manager, technology is extremely useful for them to manage the in and out of customers and from there to make the decision about pricing. In general, using technology is not some that cannot reachable, any hotel in the world should always update with the technology in order their business smoothly and sustainably.
