ALICE Helps the Luxury Chablé Resort Take Communication and Staff Operations to the Next Level
March 13, 2019 11:31am
ALICE provides Chablé Resort & Spa with an operations system to record and track internal guest requests for effective and efficient communication.
The Leading Hotel of the World Chablé Resort has selected ALICE’s full suite of staff communication and task management tools, as well as white-labeled app for their guests, to improve staff communication, enhance operations, and better engage guests across its 40 luxury villas located in the Mayan jungle. ALICE is the hospitality industry’s leading operations technology, connecting every department of the hotel with one platform for all staff communication and guest requests. In 2017, ALICE acquired concierge software provider GoConcierge to augment its technology and customer service offering.
At the time of implementing ALICE, Chablé Resort had developed standard operating procedures (SOPs), but had yet to fully distribute and communicate them to all departments (the Resort opened in 2016). By implementing ALICE, SOPs are now stored as Logbook items, which makes them easily accessible to all staff members. When changes to SOPs are made, additions are uploaded as new Logbook items and immediately available to every department. This was a new feature in ALICE designed specifically for the resort and it ensures that everyone is on the same page when it comes to following procedures.
Another aspect that had impacted operations prior to ALICE was communication amongst management, and staff in general. Previously, personal cell phones were used by management to communicate requests or report anything that needed to be addressed. This had two further implications. One being that the only way for management to see if a task had been completed required scrolling through a chat history, and the other being that on days off, management would still receive messages that were often unrelated to their team.
By upgrading to ALICE, managers will no longer be bothered by messages on their personal cell phones and will only receive requests that exclusively pertain to their areas, allowing for managers to fully disconnect from work. The issue of identifying if a task has been completed has also been addressed, as ALICE workflows enable the manager to see when something has been completed through the ticket history.
Moving over to ALICE has also meant that radio is no longer the main channel of communication. This has benefitted the property in many ways, especially because radio chatter is no longer overheard by guests.
For Rooms Division Manager Eva Lopez, the transition to ALICE has been a positive one. “There’s a big difference. Right now, we can record every internal and guest request and now we know how long each request will take.”
Manage staff work and guest communication across departments with the ALICE operations platform. By joining all the departments of your hotel onto a single operations platform for internal communication and task management, ALICE helps your staff act as a team to provide consistently excellent service.
Since the company was founded in 2013, ALICE has gained serious traction in the industry working many of the world's leading hotel brands, including Two Roads Hospitality, Dream Hotel Group, Grupo Posadas, SIXTY Hotels, NYLO Hotels, and Leading Hotels of the World. The company acquired concierge technology provider GoConcierge in 2017. For more information, visit https://www.aliceplatform.com/.
