Digitize, automate, win: The Zetter Group's story of triumph with Flexkeeping

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at The Zetter Group to verify this case study.
To stay on top of their 3 hotels offering 96 guest rooms, The Zetter Group needed an easy way to oversee daily operations across all three properties. In Flexkeeping, they found the perfect partner to ditch outdated systems and adopt paperless communication that promotes transparency and efficiency.
Why it matters: Outdated software solutions in hotels result in inefficient daily operations‍. For The Zetter Group, the problem were tools that lacked technological flexibility, forcing staff to waste time and energy using paper and phone. Digitizing and automating their daily operations became a top priority.
  • After a seamless integration between Flexkeeping and apaleo‍, The Zetter Group team could oversee all daily operations at any time on their smartphones. They received automated reports with daily KPIs from Housekeeping, Maintenance, as well as details about potential guest complaints, events, and other important daily updates.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The Zetter Group wanted to automate processes, save money, and help the team manage their time more effectively.
  • Optimize daily operations: Especially in housekeeping and maintenance, where poor communication and task delegation between teams prevented both departments from being efficient.

  • Automate relevant reports: Housekeeping managers and other department managers have to submit daily reports. Instead of wasting time collecting data from paper reports, phone calls, and emails, they wanted automated, instant, and easy-to-read updates from all departments.

  • Destress the team: Inefficiencies, unknown situations, and lack of communication lead hotel staff to do tasks the hard way and eventually burn out. Why not destress the team by simplifying communication?

Managing Director

The Zetter Hotel

"Housekeeping was running on paper, maintenance got calls, and the management team lost hours every week preparing reports. We spent so much time trying to communicate and sort things out, trying to understand where the problems were before we could tackle them. The usual kind of inefficient operations we often see in a hotel. ‍Flexkeeping brought us an easier way of working together while making our whole team happier."
