Hotels worldwide use RoomKeyPMS daily to manage properties all over the world, and RoomKey is dedicated to listening to their feedback. At RoomKey we combine proprietary data and customer feedback to implement strategic improvements in our software. These enhanced features and new integrations are chosen to directly reflect each client’s needs. As the customer, this gives you the power to lead the customization of your PMS. Here are some ideas for taking charge of your PMS and directly influencing the functionality of the software you use everyday.
Use the RoomKeyPMS Ideas Portal
Who better to direct product formation than RoomKeyPMS users? The RoomKey Ideas portal was created to ensure that customers’ ideas never go unheard. The Ideas portal collects clients’ suggestions and ideas on RoomKeyPMS features. The portal helps inform RoomKey’s decisions about products and allows us to better update our customers on features being considered or implemented in the near future.
As a customer, you can join discussions in the portal, under a number of key categories such as Operational Interfaces, Reservations and Business Intelligence and Reporting. The “upvote” function gives you—the end user—further control to direct improvements and additions. If there’s a suggestion you agree with, you can upvote the comment to signal your support. When a feature is in the production stage, it can be developed further with user feedback, so be sure to vocalize how existing suggestions can benefit your business operations.
By participating in the Ideas portal, you can join strategic conversations and help steer the course of future RoomKeyPMS capabilities. For example, one discussion centered around the best way to accommodate families who travel together and request neighboring rooms. 54 people upvoted the idea that we should incorporate a “do not move” function that prevents front-of-house staff from breaking apart parties that are travelling together. Our product team took note of this feedback and has since added this functionality. Currently, we are working on implementing four customer requests into the software. In fact, the category Business Intelligence and Reporting has seen an immense impact with 46% of requests completed.
The RoomKeyPMS Ideas portal is a benefit that goes beyond the individual support offered by the customer service team. It holds our product team to the high standards of our users and allows us to learn the “why” behind the user data we already have. Combining our proprietary data with direct customer observations allows us to optimize our software to directly suit the needs of each individual business.
Customize your PMS with Integrations
At RoomKey, we understand that it is important for a PMS to feel customized to your property. That’s why RoomKeyPMS is integration-rich, allowing you to adjust the features and functions depending on your specific needs. In addition to vocalizing specific requests or new concepts to the RoomKey team, there are other ways to impact the customization of your software. Consider implementing the following integrations to better understand your customers and ultimately improve the guest experience at your property.
- GoMoment is an interface that allows you to follow up with a guest post-stay, in real-time. Hoteliers can receive immediate guest feedback, and communicate with guests, letting them know that they are heard and understood.
- Guestfolio, Revinate and Medallia allow you to capture critical customer information that aids in post-stay reputation management. Integrations such as these can be invaluable in securing customer respect, and ensuring that guests return to your property time and time again.
- RoomKeyPMS also integrates with Duetto’s Open Pricing Model, providing you more opportunity to increase your ADR and occupancy rates.
Your PMS is a vital part of your team. Being able to provide suggestions directly to the product team and implement key integrations to fit your needs, are important in ensuring that your hotel remains efficient and profitable. What you’ll find in RoomKeyPMS is a chance to be heard, alongside continually improving products that lead to greater property management success.
If you have an idea for a feature or integration you’d like to see implemented, or else have questions or comments about certain products, be sure to consult the Ideas portal.
