3 Ways Hospitality Automation Keeps Costs Under Control

Let CytexOne Help You Take Care of Business

The travel and tourism industry drives the economy in Las Vegas, Nevada with more than 41 million visitors annually and hotel occupancy rates of nearly 92 percent in March of this year. As the industry continues to grow year over year, there are a few factors that remain consistent; the need to have reliable staff that provides exceptional customer service and the importance of achieving the critical balance between guest comfort and operating margins—and maintaining such a balance long-term. With that premise in mind, CytexOne deploys both back- and front-of-house hospitality automation solutions that increase operational efficiency and help deliver a more consistent level of service to hotel guests. Here are three ways that integrated technology systems can aid hoteliers to keep costs in check.

The IoT Impact on RevPAR

The hospitality market is as competitive as ever, as a stronger economy means that heady consumers and business travelers are looking for the greatest experience at hotels and resorts. These guests want excitement and customized amenities driven by reliable technology to go along with a comfortable bed to sleep in at night.

From the business perspective of hotel operations and financial management, KPIs and performance measurement mean everything. The concept of RevPAR, is top-of-mind. RevPAR is the key performance metric in the hotel industry calculated by dividing a hotel’s total guestroom revenue by the room count and the number of days in the period being measured. It all comes down to optimizing all the space invested in to the benefit of happy guests who continue to spend and generate revenues.

CytexOne IoT Transforms an Office Building

A well-known business services provider found much to be desired in their previous office space. It was not unusual to spend the first 20 minutes of a meeting getting all of the audiovisual equipment working. Sometimes screens wouldn’t turn on or devices couldn’t connect. Employees complained about being blinded by the sun or not getting enough light. It was often difficult to get a wireless connection in the office. Electric bills were high but management had no idea how the power was being used.

As the company prepared to move its 300-person staff into a new three-story, 60,000 square foot space in midtown Manhattan, management looked to address these problems and generally improve the productivity and comfort of its employees and visitors. The conference rooms were a top priority because customers and prospects frequently visit the company’s offices for meetings and presentations that have major impact on revenue generation.

“The Internet of Things [IoT] is like the Wild West right now with many different products providing point solutions,” said Dan Levine, Chief Executive Officer of CytexOne, a solution and integration provider that specializes in IoT applications in commercial buildings. “The challenge in this case was to put together an integrated solution using equipment from multiple vendors that functions together smoothly and addresses all of the client’s needs at a reasonable price point.”
