Software developer Nuvola has launched a new initiative to help hoteliers with post-COVID-19 hotel operations. 

Checklists and Checkpoints, the first set of resources now available to prepare hotels for reopening, work together as a digital assistant in managing and implementing new cleaning protocols. Both modules are free to deploy through the end of 2020.

Checklists is designed to streamline a hotel’s standard operating procedures with new safety protocols and ensures cleaning measures meet all hygiene requirements. The checklist can provide instructions on a new health and safety standard operating procedure, a daily lineup, a security walk-through, a room inspection or managing cleaning supplies. The program provides a user-friendly desktop and mobile experience for all staff members and supervisors. To begin using the module, hotels can select a preexisting list provided by Nuvola, upload any checklist from a certified source, or create a new list based on their specific needs.
 
Checkpoints allows a hotel to schedule and track cleanings using a contactless QR code. Created to serve as a digital assistant, Checkpoints helps staff organize and manage proper sanitization methods of high-touchpoint surface areas and locations with high foot traffic and ensures that cleaning products approved by the Centers for Disease Control are used throughout the hotel where designated.

“Aiming to do our part as former hoteliers in helping the industry navigate the new state of travel, we saw the need to develop free and easy-to-use solutions to assist in the reopening process,” said Juan Carlos Abello, CEO and founder of Nuvola. “Checklists and Checkpoints is the first immediate solution we are able to provide hoteliers and their staff as they look for support in maintaining health and safety measures. As we continue to rollout the StayClean initiative, our focus will be on providing digital solutions that enhance the overall guest experience in the new travel climate.”
