In July 2023, Viajero Hostel Buenos Aires integrated Flexkeeping and transformed their day-to-day operations through powerful digitalization. From eradicating manual processes to supercharging collaboration, Viajero showcased remarkable productivity improvements and enhanced operational efficiency using Flexkeeping's Hotel Operations Platform.
Why it matters: The strategic integration of technology not only enhances operational efficiency but also elevates the overall guest experience. Embracing innovative digital solutions in daily operations has the potential to revolutionize the hostel industry, fostering significant advancements in productivity, collaboration, and guest satisfaction.
  • Flexkeeping's Hotel Operations Platform helped Viajero Hostel Buenos Aires to eradicate manual operational inefficiencies and foster real-time collaboration. The integration allowed the hostel to address challenges related to communication gaps, manual data entry, and coordination issues between departments.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Viajero Hostel Buenos Aires chose Flexkeeping's Hotel Operations Platform to streamline inter-departmental workflows, boost productivity, save time with manual processes, and ultimately elevate the guest experience.
  • Unlock productivity and efficiency: Within the housekeeping department, every process operated entirely through manual means. From linen counting to the manual input of all information, these processes were vulnerable to human errors. The workflow and task allocation were inefficient, contributing to a significant communication gap.

  • Supercharging collaboration: The Front Office functioned as the central hub for communication and information dissemination throughout the entire hostel. A central platform to access real-time updates and log all requests and inquires was missing. This bottleneck resulted in prolonged response times to rectify mistakes.

  • Elevate guest experience: Maintenance issues were traditionally reported solely through a notebook at the Front Office, leading to a lack of real-time communication. Additionally, to gather lists of unresolved issues, the maintenance team had to physically visit the Front Office.
