Since the implementation of hotelkit at the Mercure Hotel MOA Berlin, the digital tool has facilitated the daily work of the busy staff. Thanks to the efficient handovers in hotelkit, the arrivals and departures of guests are handled as smoothly as never before. Not only the guests benefit from this but also the 150 employees. Digitizing the daily routines saves them time and paper.
Why it matters: Guaranteeing high service quality has always been the top priority at Mercure Hotel MOA Berlin. In the past, however, it took the employees of the 4-star hotel with 336 rooms a considerable amount of time to complete the tasks at hand as repair orders and handovers were written down on paper checklists.
  • Moreover, the different departments communicated via phone and email which proved to be an inefficient way of communicating and in doing so, important time resources were wasted which could instead have been allocated to taking care of guests.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Guaranteeing high service quality is key for the Mercure MOA. So to save time with internal communication and instead focus on the guest, was the main objective.
