Hotsoft + GuestJoy

The cooperation between Hotsoft PMS and GuestJoy takes digital guest communication to a completely new level. The world won´t be the same anymore and also hospitality needs to take a new course. Digital guest communication is becoming part of our daily life. Online check-in to fasten the check-in process or choosing suitable services before the actual arrival date will make life more comfortable for the guests but also takes away repetitive tasks from a receptionist. The result will be a better digital guest experience and not less important is the time-saving.

How does it work?

The two-way API interface between Hotsoft PMS and GuestJoy enables hoteliers to create digital guest experiences using a single product. Once the integration is set up, the data flow between Hotsoft and GuestJoy is seamless. Updates made in GuestJoy appear in the guest folio.

Key benefits this new two-way integration brings

  • Update check-in data in the PMS without manual entry
  • Update orders and add to guest folio
  • Upsell goes straight to invoicing
  • Real-time room availability check and automated room upgrades
  • More frequent updates (once an hour vs once a day with the old one)
  • More segmentation fields

I love their integration with Mews. They established two-way connectivity so the hotels could fully benefit from the contactless guest experience and a digital guest journey. These two systems together work like magic:)

Markus Levin, Sales Director – Mews

Easy & solid. That is the essence of GuestJoy. They offer a great guest journey for business owners looking to improve their check-in, upsell, and feedback flow. It is an extremely easy-to-use tool for the segment that needs this most: small and mid-sized hotels.

The Accor chain has more than 5000 hotels in 4 categories from economy to luxury, meaning they have an offering to suit every type of traveler. Accor hotels pride themselves on being innovative, inclusive and promoting equality throughout their work and employment as well. 

The Eastern European Accor branch has been working with GuestJoy for a year now using all GuestJoy features; contactless online check-in, guest communication emails, upselling, and feedback gathering.

In order to meet the requirements of Accor, GuestJoy developed many touch points for guests to join Accor’s loyalty program, as this was a key metric for them. The presence of these touch points resulted in a higher number of loyalty club sign-ups.

“Out of all the products available, we chose GuestJoy because it’s easy to use, and it offers multiple solutions in one platform which covers the entire digital guest journey. Thanks to this we can engage with our guests before, during and after their stay, which is really important to us.”

Daniela Nova, Digital Media Director Accor
Eastern Europe

Daniela is excited about continuing through 2021 with GuestJoy. GuestJoy helped the Accor properties through the busy times of 2019, as well as difficult times during 2020. As a seamless, automated system, it liberates hoteliers from a lot of labor that they have otherwise performed manually. 

Daniela continued; “GuestJoy has countless benefits. A lot of them are especially useful these days when guests expect and need contactless interaction in the hotel. 

With GuestJoy, our properties can prepare all the arrivals, get the necessary information from visitors legally and safely, meanwhile also targeting them with offers and services. 

GuestJoy has excellent customer support, they always react quickly to any hotel request”.

We are delighted to have the Eastern European Accor team on board and hope to see hotels from the rest of the chain embarking on the digital guest experience soon.
