In the ever-evolving landscape of the hospitality industry, staying ahead of the curve often requires creative thinking and technological innovation. At Bukit Vista, we take pride in our commitment to delivering exceptional guest experiences. Recently, one of our data scientists, Felix, took it upon himself to streamline and enhance our guest review management process, resulting in a groundbreaking solution that is poised to revolutionize our operations.
Felix’s journey into this transformative project began when he was assigned to Content BBW (Buddy Balance Work), a program designed to facilitate collaboration among team members. In this role, Felix was tasked with handling guest review replies. What initially seemed like a straightforward task soon revealed itself to be a time-consuming endeavor.
Finding guest reviews and replying takes time to find the review and reply it directly
Recognizing the need for efficiency, Felix embarked on a mission to optimize the process. He identified a bottleneck in the workflow – the time it took to locate guest reviews and formulate replies. Rather than accept this as an inevitable challenge, Felix turned to his technical skills to find a solution.
Fueled by a passion for innovation, Felix fired up his browser developer tools and, leveraging his programming prowess, crafted a Python script. This script was designed to automate the often tedious and manual task of finding guest reviews and crafting responses. By connecting this script with Google Colab, he created a seamless workflow that significantly expedited the review management process.
Felix’s Google Collab tools help find guest reviews and respond directly.
Felix’s innovation didn’t stop at streamlining guest review replies. It opened doors for our team to leverage previous innovations like GAIA (Guest AI Assistant). Now, our developers can develop this tool further to respond to guest reviews directly through Slack, our preferred communication platform. This integration empowers our team to provide timely and personalized responses, enhancing the overall guest experience.
But the benefits don’t end there. Inspired by Felix’s ingenuity, other developers on our team have further extended the capabilities of this new tool. They have developed a feature that can summarize property reviews provided by guests, saving substantial time previously spent sifting through numerous review pages.
The impact of Felix’s initiative is profound. It has not only streamlined our guest review management process but has also significantly reduced the time and effort required to manage a large volume of reviews. This newfound efficiency translates into hours of saved manual work, allowing our team to focus on more strategic and creative aspects of our mission to provide memorable stays for our guests.
We are excited to embrace these technological advancements and continue our commitment to delivering exceptional hospitality. Don’t miss this chance to be a part of the team that’s redefining hospitality for the modern world. Join us on this exciting journey of innovation and human-centric technology. and drive positive change in the world of hospitality.
