Maximizing Revenue and Security: Strategic Insights for Hotel Business Centers

For hotel general managers and IT departments seeking to optimize their business centers.

The effective management of a hotel business center is often a surprising factor in a hotel's profitability. As a hotel general manager or IT professional, it’s crucial to grasp the nuances of business center usage to unlock its full potential.

Understanding usage includes a number of things including, assessing the number of machines, print volume, and leveraging data points like search queries. Getting dialed into usage is an essential component a hotelier will need to understand to realize the full potential of their hotel business center.

Hotel Business Center Print Usage - What to Know

Understanding usage, hoteliers can then plan for downgrades or upgrades - and even new equipment - that could impact the bottom line.

For example, if hoteliers see that a business center is being used heavily for printing, they may want to invest in a new printer with a higher speed and quality. Or may decide to add mobile printing to accommodate guests.

Alternatively, some hoteliers feel that guests using Mobile Devices may not need as many computers and may want to consider the location or number of computers. 

But first, you need to understand what's in use and what's not. 

Beyond Printing - The Right Business Center Analytics Tools Matter

The key to smart hotel business center management lies in utilizing the right analytics tools. With tools like TTI's proprietary software, managers can track usage patterns, like the most clicked links, and tailor their promotional strategies accordingly. This data-driven approach can lead to reduced reliance on front-desk staff and boost both sales and customer satisfaction.

Linking Usage to Revenue: A New Perspective in Hotel Business Center Management

By understanding how guests utilize business centers, hotels can directly tie this usage to revenue generation. This involves analyzing data to make budgetary decisions that align with guest preferences and usage trends.

Tactics such as incorporating links for local attractions, maps, mobile printing, etc., could reduce the hotel's dependence on front desk or concierge staff. When hoteliers have these tools, they can adjust their software as needed. This will increase hotel sales, and hoteliers can also expect an uptick in customer satisfaction.

With analytics that allows you to connect direct links to hotel usage, hoteliers can take those statistics and apply them to hotel budgets.

Customizing Content for Guest Engagement

TTI's portals offer managers a place to update the links, pictures, and messaging. Information such as local happenings, transportation, or even where to enjoy happy hour is viable hotel business center links that hoteliers can utilize for hotel promotion. Hotels can even time when messages will appear on the desktop. 

More Than Data - Security Should Be a Top Priority

Of course, while the look and functionality of the hotel business center are essential, the most critical aspect of design is that it works and works as securely as possible. Security is paramount in hotel business center management.

Usage & Security - What to Consider When Planning Your Hotel Business Center Budget

Beyond this, hoteliers need to be aware of the latest security threats and how their hotel business center solutions can combat them.
