Benefits of a Guest Room Management System (GRMS)
A Guest Room Management System (GRMS) assists in efficiently managing a room, either centrally or locally in the room itself. In a hotel room environment for example, systems can be designed so that each room has one controller (Local Control Unit – LCU), and several room units. A GRMS can be completely stand-alone, stand-alone integrated or multi-room and part of a large network. Each system is scalable and new units can easily be added to meet specific requirements.
Lighting can be set for specific occasions such as a welcome, reading or sleeping scene which can be preset to enhance guest comfort. Bedside control buttons provide convenient control and create a comfortable environment. Guest service requests such as maid services (MUR), laundry and ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) requests can also be facilitated and monitored creating a greater guest satisfaction.
Systemteq have always put a large emphasis on ensuring guest room management solutions are moving ahead with green trends in building technology. Energy, is of the largest operating costs for hotels and buildings which cannot be ignored. Over the last decade the interest in reducing energy consumption has sparked great interest. Energy management is not only looked at because of revenue savings but also to reduce the environmental impact which has become a very important mission in recent years. Energy management is one of the features of a Guest Room Management System, switching off lights or reducing the fan speed to a minimum setting when guests are away from their rooms. Every year huge amounts of energy is used because of utilities running whilst guests are away from their rooms. By cutting energy consumption of unoccupied rooms huge amounts of electricity could be saved. Some claim up to 30-40% each year.
Other great benefits of a GRMS are its efficiency and monitoring capabilities. The system could be an all-in-one solution for an entire property or hotel, including individual rooms, public and service or back-of-house areas, indicating when a room is unoccupied to service and maintenance personnel. A Guest Room Management system is a fantastic solution for every hotel or building, putting you and your team in control.
