Blynk is quickly becoming the solution of choice for hotels and restaurants worldwide who want to have their presence on guests’ mobile devices.
Blynk has a suite of products to create your presence on smartphones and tablets.
Hotels and restaurants can have their own branded app, which is powered by Blynk’s platform. These apps run on Apple, Android and Blackberry OSX devices including iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and smartphones. The hotel’s app will be freely available on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and BlackBerry World.
Hotels can chose between two versions for their app, Lobby and Concierge.
The Lobby App is ideal for hotels who want to have all their hotel information, pictures, videos, 360 degree views and social media in an app. The app can also be used to make hotel bookings and restaurant reservations. Its also the ideal way to get guest feedback directly from the app. Guests can use the app on their own smartphones. Hotels can also install tablets with their app, in high traffic areas like the front desk. Guests can explore and interact with the app while they are waiting.
The Concierge App is for hotels who want to provide all the hotel services to checked-in guests. In addition to all the features in the Lobby version, guests can login with their last name and room number. They can then make common requests like room cleaning, in-room dining, wake up call, book a taxi and more directly from the app. Hotels can choose to install tablets in their rooms or rely on guest’s own devices.
Restaurants can have their digital menu apps, powered by the Blynk’s restaurant platform. Restaurateurs can use the app as a digital menu. Guests or waiters can place orders directly from the app. With the home delivery feature, restaurants who do home delivery can greatly increase their revenues and make their home delivery process more efficient.
Responsive Websites is the latest addition to Blynk’s suite of products for hotels and restaurants. These websites work on any device - desktops, tablets or smartphones. So no matter which device your guest is viewing your website, a perfectly formatted and usable website will be visible to them. This is helping hotels increase bookings when guests are viewing these websites from mobile devices. Hotels can also make changes to the website from a content management system.
In keeping with their mission of providing a complete solution to hotels to connect with guests, Blynk also provides services to help hotels and restaurants market themselves on Social Media and with Online Advertising.
Blynk is busy with the next major release of their platform which powers its apps. The major feature is going to be in-room controls from the app. Blynk is working in collaboration with some big technology companies to deliver this product.
