How Canary Helped Hotel FIVE Increase Staff Efficiency & Boost Revenue at the Same Time

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Hotel FIVE to verify this case study.
Hotel FIVE has used Canary's integrated system of guest management solutions, such as Contactless Check-In, Guest Messaging and Dynamic Upsells, to boost upsells by 200% and increase staff efficiency by 20%.
Why it matters: Coming out of the pandemic, Hotel FIVE was looking for low-lift ways to increase staff efficiency and boost revenue. Canary offered the ideal technology tools to accomplish both of these goals.
  • Consumers, including hotel guests, are more comfortable with, and reliant on, technology than ever. Hotel FIVE knew they needed to meet these new consumer expectations with mobile-friendly solutions that provide a great guest experience.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The management team at Hotel FIVE hoped that Canary's Guest Management solutions would help the property operate more efficiently and drive more ancillary revenue per guest.
  • Streamline guest arrivals: Prior to using Canary, Hotel FIVE had a traditional innkeeper mentality with guests handling all check-in tasks at the physical front desk. With Canary, they were hoped to digitize much of this process.

  • Reduce front-desk call volumes: By deploying Canary's Guest Messaging solution, Hotel FIVE's desire was to reduce distractions at the front desk that can keep agents from providing guests with the most personalized experience possible.

  • Improve operational efficiency: Hotel FIVE's management team needed to combat the effects of the ongoing staffing shortages in the hospitality industry and reasoned that a comprehensive Guest Management System like Canary could help them provide the same great guest experience with fewer employees.
