Fattal’s vision is to have a central hub of customer communications and experiences across all hotels in the group - a place for guests to know where they are coming to, what they can do, and have a personal experience. This is not a small feat, considering the size, vastness, and geographical spread of the group.
Why it matters: Over the last 2 years, it has become clear to Fattal that guests aren’t necessarily inclined to download a native app to their phone just for a vacation, and that the solutions they should look into must include a web-based app that integrates with other core services - such as online check-in, guest communications, upselling or remote door control and mobile keys.
  • By implementing Duve’s fully customizable, personalized online check- Fattal has been able to double the online check-in ratio - essentially cutting down wait lines at physical check-in by half, and allowing the reception team to focus on delivering a truly personal experience to each guest. With Duve’s omni-channel communication hub, guests and staff can 2-way communicate directly over WhatsApp, email, web app, or SMS.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Fattal began examining solutions across the market, and evaluated several solutions to find one that will help them facilitate guest happiness, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.
  • Manage entire guest experience: Guest experience solution that will include a wide scope of supported features (check-in, guest app, communications, upsells, mobile keys, analytics and more)

  • Easy to implement: With over 200 hotels spread across Israel and Europe, and over 43,000 rooms, Fattal required an easy-to-implement solution with minimal implementation time and complexity

  • Segment guests by profiles: Fattal searched for a fully white-label solution that would allow them to maintain their brand throughout the guest experience. They were searching for a specific emphasis on personalization and guest segmentation.

Duve
