Treebo Group of Hotels, the Bangalore-based chain of budget hotels, announced the launch of a tablet-based property management system for their hotel partners. Called ‘Bumblebee’ the app will be used by property managers to manage all tasks related to hotel operations, including check-ins, check-outs, new reservations, room assignments, payments, fulfilling guest preferences, billing for F&B and laundry, among others.
Commenting on the launch, company’s co-founder and head of technology and products, Kadam Jeet Jain, said, “In the budget segment you cannot afford highly-skilled manpower as it comes expensive. You therefore need to innovate using technology to simplify and hardwire tasks, and thereby reduce errors and time taken for completion. Bumblebee has been designed keeping this in mind. And that’s why we built it on a tablet. This is the first-ever, stand-alone tablet app for hotel managers. And it is a big shift away from desktop based systems, which are often too complex and time consuming. This app helps us crash our check-in times, for example, to less than 3 minutes, when in traditional set-ups it would take 15-20 minutes. Besides, it also helps keep the hotel data safer as the system can be accessed from hotel premises only.”
