What is a check-in kiosk?

It is an unattended, simple operation, convenient and quick query human-computer interaction equipment. Guests can check-in and check out through the self-service facilities. It has service integrity, visibility, systematization, and maintainability, which effectively guarantee the hotel automated processing service.

Why the hotel should adopt check-in kiosk?

To begin with, the check-in kiosk can take away the time-consuming duty of registering, with a much lower risk of human error. Allowing technology-savvy customers to use hotel check-in kiosk will also free staff to help the customers who hold up queues—the ones who demand different rooms and who have endless lists of questions and complaints.

If the reception staff can ensure the check-in goes smoothly and sell the late check-in customer something to eat, the hotel will save money on staffing, increased its revenue and increased customer satisfaction. Therefore, it will not only relieve customers fatigue and lighten them up as they can check in more quickly and conveniently but also it will help the hotel update its reputation.

How will check-in kiosk work?

Currently, many students will choose to go to travel to relax and gain inspiration to embrace the future after finishing the fierce competition of the entrance examination. They can firstly choose their ideal hotel and room type at their phones, gaining information such as a QR code after successfully paying it. And the guest can scan the QR code at the check-in kiosk when they reach the hotel. The machine will automatically assign a responding room and spit out the room cards, and the guest can head upstairs.
