Coronavirus impact on hotels and push to talk social distancing solutions.

Coronavirus has a profound economic and social impact focusing on hotel operators to review digital innovations to improve hotel guest experiences.

Airacom develops a next-generation push to talk two way radio system enabling hotel operators to deploy Covid-19 safety measures around staff intimacy and proximity while improving the overall hotel experience with fast and efficient service delivery.

With the wide-ranging measures implemented by various countries (international travel bans, domestic movement restrictions, and quarantines), the European Commission has recognised the Hotel and Leisure sector as one of the hardest-hit sectors by the COVID-19 outbreak. Traveller perception of safety and security in the destinations and modes of transport is critical to increasing hotel occupancy rates and the overall viability of a hotel’s operation.

Designing safer spaces to reassure employees and guests is a top priority for hotel managers to mitigate both the risk and impact of SARS-CoV-2 for staff and customers within a hotel complex. Reorganisation of critical processes, operations and introducing innovative technologies will allow for faster and more efficient service delivery, keeping staff connected and collaborating while social distancing.

At a push to a button, staff can communicate and collaborate across teams, both one-to-one or across talk groups with multiple members or the whole team using Airacom ultra-fast push-to-talk group communication. Since the 16th March 2020, when the prime minister announced, “now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact and travel, ” many guidelines and recommendations have been published around social distancing.

Improved onsite communications between staff can benefit from utilising Airacom’s reliable push-to-talk group communications platform to comply with social distancing regulations and benefit from safe work practices when relaying critical messages between staff members and guests.
