Grew into the DNA of our operations

When configured well and with a bit of time, I have noticed that at various places I have deployed HotSOS, entire operational changes are made around the functionality of this application because of how efficient works. Going manual is always heavily frowned upon afterwards. I highly recommend having your team dedicate time to attending the trainings and not skimping on training time - this will go a long way to maximizing the adoption and use of the solution

Pros

Easy to Navigate and Small learning curve for Responders and Agents Lots and lots of builtin charts supports bar-code scanning of locations and equipment Easy Collaboration and monitoring for teams of all sizes When configured well, reduces time to resolution by automatically finding the right person for the job who is available Multilingual (by user)

Cons

Reports don't open or format well on Android Devices Setup is not for the faint of heart and must be done accurately Administration takes some learning, especially managing teams and how they receive work-orders Requires great WiFi service - roaming in and out of WiFi coverage may cause app to logout or require user to close and reopen app to continue working

An essential software for all hotel operations managers yet features are very compounded and not user friendly.

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.

An Exceptional Operating System that helps enhance the guest experience and maximizes staff productivity. Best system on the market

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.

Potential, but not there yet

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.

HotSOS recommended for all hotels!

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.
