Streamlining Housekeeping Tasks For Your Small Hotel

The hospitality industry's heroes. The quality of their work and how they function are important when it comes to the overall experience a guest has while staying in your hotel.

Sometimes, the housekeeping staff's workload is more than can be handled efficiently within a specific time frame. To continue providing top-notch service, here are a few ways you can streamline housekeeping tasks for your small hotel:

Cloud-Based Property Management System

A property management system is just one way you can improve your small hotel's housekeeping functions. This kind of system is capable of the following:

  • Task Assignment - It allows you to designate tasks to each staff member. This divides the work equally among employees and helps keep things flowing.
  • List Management - Every day, you can print out the list of tasks that housekeeping staff will need to accomplish. This helps keep everything organized and also makes it easier to distribute the tasks as well. It is a good way to update everyone on their responsibilities for the day.
  • Room Updates - This kind of management system can help you keep track of special requests for each room so there is clear communication across the board. For example, a room can be marked as one that has not requested any service.
  • Automated Changes - The system also helps reduce errors. Some hotels have had the unfortunate experience of housekeeping staff walking into a room that still had guests in it. The system can automatically update itself once a guest checks out.

The Benefits Of Streamlining Tasks

When you choose to find ways to increase the efficiency of housekeeping tasks for your small hotel, you will find several advantages.

You can then use this information to train your team accordingly. And with more time on your hands, you can focus on other management tasks with fewer distractions.
