NEW YORK — Designed by MyCheck, the “Front Desk Widget” mobile widget is now available to any hotel running on the Micros-Opera platform — with others soon to follow — regardless of size or brand affiliation. The widget can be added to a hotel’s website, mobile site and app, enabling guests to check in, view their folio and check out with just a click.
Guests access the Front Desk Widget by entering their confirmation number and last name. Before arriving, guests can use the widget to choose rooms, request upgrades and receive room-status alerts. Upon arrival, guests can bypass the front desk and go straight to their rooms. Onsite, guests use the widget to view their folios (data is pulled in real time from the PMS). Upon departure, guests check out via the widget, using their laptop, tablet or smartphone.
“The Front Desk Widget from MyCheck is designed to wow guests while saving hoteliers development and integration time,” says Shlomit Kugler, MyCheck CEO. “For those hoteliers who aspire to offer the same interactive functionality as the big brands without spending thousands of dollars and several months on development, this widget is ideal.”
