How good they are feeling. Just imagine. This level of service delivery must be preserved in all other guest-facing operations, not just during the check-in process. In addition, few hotels face integration challenges. With the advent of modern technology and increased usage of such tools by visitors, the implementation of such technology in hotels becomes inevitable at one point.

You require a few tactics to retain qualified staff. For instance, building a sense of belonging (culture) and value will make staff attached to their job and give their minds a sense of responsibility.
- Increased competition
