Leveraging the two-way integration between Shiji’s ReviewPro and Concilio Labs enables Kempinski to create 360º guest profiles for hyper-personalized guest service.
Barcelona 8th November 2022: ReviewPro, a Shiji Group brand providing the leading Guest Experience Platform for hospitality, and Concilio Labs, a leading provider in guest intelligence technology, integrate to enable a pioneering 360-degree approach to guest profiles for Kempinski Hotels.
“The magic of great integrations is ease of use, intra-operability, low overheads, and minimum pain points”, says Riko Van Santen, Chief Information Officer at Kempinski Hotels and Member of the Management Board, “What stood out about Shiji’s ReviewPro’s open API-integration was the efficiency of both the technology and the teams enabling a simplified ‘no headache’ experience.”
Kempinski Hotels implemented this integration to enrich guest profiles within their hotel CRM. The aim is to understand guest preference in order to improve operations and better the guest experience, which has a positive impact on online reputation and the Global Review Index™ (The GRI™ is a global hotel benchmark score for guest satisfaction).
“These days, it is no longer enough for brands to rely on general segments to profile their guests. They must draw on data from multiple sources and analyze it at the speed of business, going beyond the CRM. Concilio’s Guest Insight Engine, coupled with Shiji’s ReviewPro platform, delivers a holistic picture of guests that comes from gathering, contextualizing, analyzing, and prescribing data. Hoteliers that prioritize guest data and take advantage of technology to help them get closer to their guests, are in a better position to stay ahead of the competition and win the loyalty of the increasingly empowered guest”, states Terri Miller, CEO at Concilio Labs.
Concilio’s Guest Insight Engine is designed to strengthen guest relationships by anticipating and responding to guest needs. Post-stay guest feedback is a crucial element as it provides hoteliers with an opportunity to understand the guest’s experience, what should be improved for all guests, but more importantly, hoteliers can address each guest’s concern prior to the guest’s next stay within the chain.
Shiji’s ReviewPro offers an enhanced and customizable Guest Survey solution enabling hotel brands to gather specific feedback across the guest journey. Via an integration into the Concilio Labs Guest Insight Engine, the guest profile is enhanced with feedback gathered from surveys. Over consecutive stays the profiles can be used to provide personalized guest service whether that be in-room preferences, amenities, activities recommended, or facilities. This applies whether it is a returning guest at the same property or another one within the portfolio.
“In a competitive luxury industry where customer acquisition is much higher than that of customer retention, personalised guest service is not only essential, but profitable.” says Michael Kessler, CEO at ReviewPro, a Shiji Group brand. “With our open API we aim to simplify the access to guest feedback data, so that hoteliers can better understand their guests’ preferences, and further improve the quality of the stay of their guests, improve guest retention, increase RevPAR, and boost revenue.”
