Hospitality is one of the most exciting and dynamic industry sectors that frequently involves balancing first rate facilities with cost management.
The multiple demands guests, controlling expenses and managing all other responsibilities takes more than a good manager to bring order in the busy world of the hospitality industry.
Document Logistix empowers hotels and hospitality companies to streamline electronic, paper and document workflows, to gain the control you need to ensure smooth operations, data compliance and cost reduction.
Document Logistix helps organisations in the hospitality sector such as hotels, restaurants, food and beverage outlets, events companies and events venues. We help customers to manage and workflow information, to achieve operational efficiency and secure data compliance.
The twin drivers for in the hospitality sector are efficiency, to service customers effectively, and compliance, to maintain data securely and meet audit standards.
One of our hotel customers manages half a million documents a year across more than 50 hotels. Half of the documents are invoices; others include supply documents (GRNs), as well as in-house documents, such as timesheets and HR holiday requests. In addition, there is guest information, which is a CRM asset that requires secure storage according to data privacy requirements.
We help to streamline the flow of information – from capture to storage – to achieve requisite approvals for purchases and payments. We also help to implement effective and efficient registration documentation solutions.
Document Logistix helps to achieve smooth front of house, customer-facing operations, and back of house administrative efficiency.
There always was pressure on organisations to capture and manage customer information securely. The introduction of GDPR in 2018 adds another layer of compliance complexity around privacy and data protection, which dictates how client data is kept, used and shared.
Document Logistix helps hotels, restaurants, food and beverage suppliers, and events organisations to capture and store information to meet data protection requirements.
Rules-based workflow means that client, product, supply and invoicing procedures are followed strictly according to company policy. Each checkpoint requires completion before further progress is allowed.
Automation can be introduced in operations workflows to trigger alerts or escalation to senior staff to ensure that procedures are met.
Many hotels, restaurants and events venues aspire to going paperless, yet in reality have to rely on many paper forms and print high volumes of documents every day. Paper is hard to track and costly to manage.
Document Logistix will help you to go paperless where you can, and to manage paper-based information far more efficiently and securely, with digital storage solutions.
Digital document management enables companies in the hospitality sector to capture information comprehensively, store and manage it securely, and allow permissions-based access instantly from any location. Customers can also implement automated retention policies to ensure that data is kept and destroyed according to regulations.
As digital document management overcomes the problems classically associated with paper-based systems and data silos, audit trails are complete and quickly produced.
Historically data has been kept in multiple systems and locations such as CRM, HR, Customer Services, filing cabinets and often emails on standalone workstations.
The ability to keep time-stamped information in one location greatly eases the burden of administration for head office and each hospitality location.
Hospitality organisations generate a constant stream of paperwork, for example: guest information, supplier information, staff records, general correspondence, invoices and receipts. The majority of documents today are electronic, received via email, yet paper documents are still a significant part of day-to-day operations. The key to success, regardless of format, is proper information capture and secure storage that facilitates access and information management. Successful hospitality operations use Document Logistix to digitise and index electronic and paper documents.
