HMA, known in the hospitality arena for its managed CRM platform and hospitality marketing services, has announced the release of Valet, a cloud-based VIP management software. Valet’s platform is designed for hoteliers who want to take their VIP efforts to the next level. It offers a sophisticated approach to VIP identification, accompanied by a powerful dashboard and automated daily notification delivery to alert hotel teams of daily/weekly VIP arrivals. One of the most robust features of VALET is its program flexibility which can help re-envision a new VIP management program and/or apply it to augment an existing membership or points-driven program.
Valet’s philosophical approach embraces a surprise and delight approach to guest recognition to deliver the unexpected. Valet interfaces with PMS systems to tap into future reservations and other hotel property data sets to build VIP profiles, which the hotel property can further customize. The development of customized algorithms is the power behind this customizable solution with a user interface designed to support hotel teams with access to VIP profile views, an amenity menu, and delivery tracking. Software setup and use guidelines offer an opportunity to open a dialogue for hotel teams charged with the creation and implementation of a guest recognition program.
Chris Escue, Director of Development, offers, “Valet represents an important initiative our company took to the finish line during the pandemic timeframe, which connects and elevates perhaps the most valuable and complex set of data elements HMA manages for our client base. Program development today must meet rigorous security and privacy standards and simultaneously provide customers with data access. We are ecstatic with the results, and the potential Valet brings to our clients.”
