Logotipo de la empresa

This week, dailypoint™ earned Hotel Tech Report’s level III Global Customer Support Certification (GCSC) for its investments into tools, processes and strategies to ensure the ongoing success of its customers across the four of the key pillars of the GCSC Rubric including: pre-emptive support, reactive support, coaching and customer validation.

The Hotel Tech Report GCSC certification program analyzes software vendors along critical dimensions of customer support infrastructure in order to help hoteliers minimize risk and maximize positive outcomes when selecting technology partners.  In order to become certified, companies must open their internal systems to Hotel Tech Report for assessment along HTR’s rigorous 34-point GCSC Rubric.

“When it comes to the email marketing and CRM for hotels there is not always a clear and obvious answer but rather there are constantly evolving best practices to make sure you are maintaining a clean database and strong email reputation to ensure your campaigns are successful.  The dailypoint team not only has great self service support via their help center and ticketing systems to answer questions but they also have an academy for customers to learn best practices and constantly grow their knowledge which is just as critical,” Hotel Tech Report co-founder Adam Hollander.

"Even the best software will not be successful in the long run if the support does not offer the same high level. For dailypoint the quality of the support and account management team is a core element of our philosophy and a main guarantee of our growth." Dr. Michael Toedt, CEO @ dailypoint™
