Since this has been a trending topic in the hospitality industry for the past couple of years, The Buyer’s Guide Abstract is as follows for further reference. With new issues arising every day, HTNG encourages those in the industry to become part of the group who is behind the conversations and the actions helping move hospitality forward. Staff Alert Technology Buyer’s Guide Abstract: The hospitality lodging industry has always been driven by the purpose of providing the optimal guest experience and care. Hotel brands have long recognized the importance of providing a safe and supportive environment for their employees to empower them. Recently, many hotel brands have promised to provide staff alert devices to their employees to urgently and easily request assistance to their location. There are potentially thousands of hotels that may need to select and deploy solutions to meet unique requirements and diverse environments. Members of the trade association, Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG), have developed this buyer’s guide to assist hoteliers, from general or operations management to corporate brand executives, build a Request for Information (RFI) or Request for Proposal (RFP) for their brands. The objective of this guide is to assist the procurement team to identify the most relevant questions, and to allow the development of the tailored RFI or RFP for their property or brand.
