To ensure the best all-inclusive luxury experience in the world, up to 180 housekeepers could simultaneously work a single shift in the biggest properties of Palace Resorts. Coordinating complex daily operations while keeping team communication efficient was their biggest challenge. Flexkeeping helped them overcome it and achieve their goals quicker and easier by automating daily operations and introducing easy-to-read reports for a comprehensive business overview.
Why it matters: The goal was to speed up and automate communication between departments so that the guests would get answers and services delivered as quickly as possible.
  • Before the implementation, the process was only partially digitized. Flexkeeping has become a central ordering system that dispatches every order to the right hotel and the right departments. Multiple departments in the hotel now have access to a chain of automated tasks that ensure the proper delivery of every service request. It is all wrapped into an SOP timeframe and automatically escalated if the service is not delivered in time.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Palace Resorts were looking for a reliable partner to help them transform communication between departments and automate daily operations.
  • Improve communication: Cut phone calls and make communication paperless. Aim for shorter response times for extra guest service requests or complaints and all other internal communication between the departments.

  • Automate housekeeping: All the tasks and communication between supervisors and housekeepers should be sent automatically, saving time and energy for other duties.

  • Provide in-depth analytics: Daily, weekly and monthly reports that ensure prompt delivery and high service quality while adjusting room service menus to meet and exceed guests’ expectations as well as optimize material costs.

"Before Flexkeeping, the daily housekeeping organization would take multiple hours and be done by combining PMS reports, paper reports from previous days, and other notes. With the introduction of Flexkeeping, the process became almost entirely automated."

  • Rooms Division Manager Magdalena Kazimierczak said, about their decision: "My research process included evaluating customer support and business value brought by a strategic partner.
