Covid-19 is accelerating the adoption of digital of automation in the hotel industry. The Corona crisis is not so much disruptive when it comes to digitization the hospitality operations and guest experience. Its impact has immediately become visible in hospitality technology, varying from automatic check-in solutions to digital key. To reduce the spread of germs in hotels is to give guests the option of automatic check-in, to deliver contactless service – including touch-less check-in and check-out – and ongoing help as needed. SALTO is compatible with many self-check-in kiosks and technology partners to deliver automation solutions that allow guests to control when and how they check-in. Automated services and self-service technologies in times of social distancing and integrating self-check-in technology into service operations helps address some of the issues around staff safety and new guest access to help practice effective social distancing. With sanitation now more of a priority than ever for hotels, we could see further investment in this type of technology after Covid-19. At the same time, automation does not necessarily result in the elimination of human roles, but rather, the shifting of resources to other areas.

Delivering multichannel self-service, automatic check-in and digital key is the future in the hotel industry. Major hotel chains are transitioning to “digital keys” and has introduced contactless check-in and check-outs which allow you to check-in and out (and pay your bill) via your mobile phone.
