Smartotels founder and managing partner Tarek M. Daouk explains: “The hospitality industry is at a turning point. At a time when GOP margins are under stress, staying competitive in today‘s market is not about being ‘bigger‘ or more renowned as a brand; it is about knowing what to offer and how to deliver value to customers. We have introduced a retail operating model into the hospitality space to create a hotel experience befitting today‘s novel consumer. HotOIL™ allows FORM Hotel to engage successfully with its hotel guests throughout the customer journey by delivering a captivating user experience both at the hotel and within the guest‘s digital space before, during, and after their stay.“
FORM will use HotOIL™ integrating high-value operations workflow algorithms enabling data-driven decisions to deliver on its promise of efficiency to guests and ROI to investors; by boosting Gross Operating Profit (GOP) by up to 10%.
Gaps between service delivery and operations occur because hotels are typically equipped with multiple systems that operate autonomously. HotOIL™ is a system that fills these operational gaps by bridging communication flows between mutually-interacting software applications enabling data optimization, efficient workflow management, and systems agility using one central interface to pilot both the guest experience and operations.
Leading international hospitality experts, Vanguelis Panayotis, Chief Operating Officer of MKG Group added: “Years of research has culminated into the development of HotOIL™, which is embedded with specific and unique algorithm codes. We took a labor-intensive operations model and dissected the service delivery chain allowing for streamlined operational output in a service-oriented architecture (SOA) framework. Being a young and vibrant hotel brand FORM is not afraid to take this game-changing technological leap to remain competitive and to keep pace with the rapidly evolving digitization of the hospitality industry.
