ReviewPro launched a guest messaging hub, a real-time communication platform that can be used to interact with guests from the messaging service they prefer, without having to download an app. It was designed in response to the fast-growing trend in private-messaging use, and also answers the need of ReviewPro’s hotel clients for an efficient, seamless and fully integrated messaging system for guests to connect directly with hotel staff.
The hub allows guests to interact with the hotel or brand via the messaging service they already use (SMS, Facebook Messenger or Twitter, with WhatsApp and WeChat coming soon). ReviewPro clients can receive and respond to guest messages via the device from which they habitually access the ReviewPro app. Messages can be grouped together by service type (Facebook and Twitter together for example), or specific hubs for specific groups (corporate or VIP clients etc.).
“Adopting messaging systems for hotel guests is critical as they expect their problems resolved immediately and while still on property,” CEO RJ Friedlander said in a statement. “The guest messaging hub offers a simple dashboard and easy-to-use interface for hoteliers to respond to guests’ needs and prevent any inconveniences becoming potential negative online reviews.”
The tool allows guests to voice concerns while still on property, and have them addressed quickly by the hotel. The guest messaging hub has been beta tested by a leading luxury brand.
