  • Centralized Customer Requests: responding to customer inquiries from diverse communication channels (Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and Google Business Message) on a single platform. 
    • Objectives: quicker to answer questions and find solutions as measured by our guest satisfaction index.

Kickin the tires

differentiators : 

  • Timeliness of integration
  • Understanding of the hospitality industry
  • Quality of training
  • Technical and marketing support
  • Value as a strategic partner. 

It was clear that Quicktext was the best-fit solution for Christopher: 

“We chose Quicktext because, in addition to the functionality and almost 100% self-sufficient handling of guest communication, we were impressed by the focus and the vision. It’s not just about providing a chatbot; it’s about offering added value to our guests at every touch point in the communication cycle with the outcome of turning them into loyal H-Hotels.com guests.”

What is a good choice?

In the year 2023, Quicktext AI virtual assistant Velma has generated over 41,120 guest conversations for €3.5 million potential booking requests. 

Velma addressed inquiries across 1,900+ data points, covering topics like pool temperatures, babysitter fees, parking information, and electric car charging stations. 

What’s next?

“Personally, I see Quicktext as a great opportunity to expand communication with our guests on different platforms and to ensure a quick response. We plan to add more channels in the future to share information across different communication channels, encouraging users to visit the website, find what they are looking for, and convert.”
