HotSOS Software


 

Hotel Service Optimization System, or HotSOS, by Newmarket International is software designed to help hotels increase guest satisfaction. The system includes a guest call assistant that offers staff an overview of the guest's information, such as stay history and guest preferences, during the phone call. The system's order console allows staff to create and update service orders, and helps front desk staff recognize preferences and past stay information of VIP guests as they arrive.

HotSOS includes a multi-lingual interactive voice response (IVR) system that integrates with a hotel's phone system, automates reports on customer trends and enables real-time integration with several popular property management systems.

HotSOS Mobile gives users real-time information on mobile devices and compiles a list of service orders, which are then prioritized based on customizable parameters, such as occupancy, stay history or VIP status. Employees can also be assigned to teams to receive requests based on their particular skills.

Pros

Working in a hotel, this service makes is easy for front desk, housekeeping, and maintenance staff be on top of things for the guests sake. Putting a work order in, for example, as delivering more pillows or towels without having to make a phone call. I really like that you can defer a work order as well.

Cons

It takes time and training for someone to get used to all the features of HotSOS. There are so many symbols.

Very easy to use, we use it for sending orders to our different internal departments in the Hotel. Would recommend to any hotel.

Having to chance passwords every 90 days is a problem. Consider to make it easy please. Other than that everything works fine.

Having to change your password every 90 days is a bit of a hassle but nothing that should keep you from using it.

Pros

Requests are instantly sent to Engineering and they are notified immediately based on level of urgency. HotSOS allows us to put a specific area on where the problem/request is. And it is a convenient and an essential program that allows us to immediately notify the Engineering department what the problem is, how urgent it is, and where specifically it is at.

Cons

The program is not user-friendly at all. You really have to see where you are going in order to get to what you want to do and what you request to happen. Lots of features that are waiting to be explored but would require a significant amount of time to play and discover around. Can load very slowly.

the product is bit costly in comparison to other systems, granted it the best on the market, however it becomes a concerns for owners of small independent properties.

Pros

Once you set up Business Rules for your property all the pieces move in the right direction creating confidence that your operation is built to succeed and deliver excellent guest service. It's easy to navigate, enter information, find past information and my favorite the Guest Recovery portion.

The great thing about having opera is being able to track and monitor actual issues and hold the team up to the same standards to track and monitor completion time and order.

Cons

The interface is slow and laggy sometimes when you switch between different screens and it makes the program crash or the app if you are using the mobile version.

Pros

I like the layout and the overall functionality. It's a pretty easy system to learn. I think it has potential to be a good program.

Cons

The program is very slow, crashes, and can't pull up information like it's supposed to. Example, if I put in a ticket and close it, I cannot locate the ticket by requester like you should be able to. The only way to pull up a ticket is to input the order number, so if I lose the order number, I have to call support and they have to hunt for it. Also, searching for items has to be almost exact or it won't pull up.
