streamBYOD: Truly platform agnostic ‘bring your own device’ solution for hotels that is also a true revenue generation tool

Did you know there is a way for guests to interact with your hotel from their own device – without having to download an app?

 

streamBYOD is truly platform agnostic. Regardless of whether your guests use a smart phone, tablet or laptop that runs Android, Apple, Windows or even Linux, they will be able to connect with your hotel’s digital platform.

This gives them a number of benefits that make your operations more convenient and modern, and that can generate revenue for your property:

  • Guests get access to your on demand content on their own devices
  • Guests can make purchases and reservations for dining, spa experiences, tours, amenities and anything else you (or your business partners) offer
  • Guests can easily communicate with relevant staff re housekeeping and maintenance requests

How many people do you know who would rather watch Netflix on their phone than try to remember their password to log in to an app on a smart TV? It’s easier to log in to an internet banking account on a mobile device using Face ID or Fingerprint Recognition, than to try to remember the password to log in on your own laptop.

It’s just more straightforward and less hassle for guests to use their own devices, rather than learning how to use a new device or installing an app that we don’t have enough storage for.

That’s why streamBYOD is an ideal solution for hotels. streamBYOD enables guests to bring their own device to your hotel and interact with your brand digitally. There’s no need to download extra apps. And it doesn’t matter what brand their device is. As long as their device can connect to your WIFI, your guests will be able to engage with your property with streamBYOD.

 

Countless Revenue Generation Opportunities

streamBYOD includes shopping and booking functionalities that makes it easy for you to generate revenue. Do you have on-site F&B venues? Communicate your brunch special, happy hour, Valentine’s Day tasting menu, or any other F&B promotion through guests own devices, and then invite them to seamlessly make a reservation on their own device. The familiarity of using their own smart phone – something that they do on a daily basis, removes a barrier to purchase and makes the experience easy and convenient.

The same concept applies if you offer spa treatments in your hotel. Guests can easily schedule a massage from their own device after a day out shopping or attending meetings.

In fact, the shopping and booking capabilities extend to external businesses too. Perhaps you don’t offer in-room dining from your own kitchen, but you partner with local restaurants to provide food delivery and restaurant bookings. Now you can achieve this very easily through the chargeback function of streamBYOD.

 

Being truly platform agnostic and providing functionality for revenue generation are just two of the top benefits of streamBYOD. There are many other features for your hotel to take advantage of!
