Park City, UT, August 27, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Park City Lodging, Inc. is excited to announce the development of their new guest services mobile application. The application will serve as a mobile concierge for Park City Lodging, Inc. guests, providing them with information about Park City including maps and news updates about events happening in town during guests’ stays.
According to a study done by Prosper Mobile Insights, nearly 79 percent of smartphone users use their smartphone or tablet on vacation. The app was a natural choice for Park City Lodging, Inc. as the company continues to strive to be on the cutting edge of hospitality technology. In recent years, travel bookings have become more last minute, and staying on top of emerging tech and travel trends also allows Park City Lodging, Inc. to be more flexible for people booking closer to their stay.
“Mobile technology is an important part of our guests’ lives,” says Rhonda Sideris, President and Founder of Park City Lodging, Inc. “We adopted the mobile application because it puts Park City Lodging, Inc. on the cutting edge and we feel that companies that are leaders in their industries will excel.”
When visitors to Park City stay with Park City Lodging, Inc. they’ll be prompted to download the application upon reservation confirmation. The app will provide the guest with check-in information and details about their property such as directions to the rental and passwords for WiFi networks, among other things.
Park City Lodging, Inc. knows that not all of our clients have adopted new technology, and embracing change doesn’t mean the company will forgo personal communication, especially for guests who do not use smartphones. “We simply want to become a better resource for our guests who are connected,” says Sideris. “And we will continue to provide the same great personalized customer service for which Park City Lodging, Inc. is known.”
The development of this application is not only beneficial for Park City Lodging, Inc.'s guests, but can be used as a resource for other businesses and residents in Park City as well. The app will include a list of businesses like restaurants, spas, ski shops, adventure companies and other points of interest in Park City. Accompanying this list will be contact information and directions from where the user is located in relation to the Park City business they wish to visit, allowing guests to have relevant information at their fingertips. The benefit for Park City residents is that even those who aren’t staying with Park City Lodging, Inc. will have free access to the app so they’ll be able to use some of those features as well.
Park City Lodging, Inc.’s decision to invest in mobile technology has coincided with the company's decision to partner with HDR Homes, the country’s leader in real estate photography, to photograph all of the properties Park City Lodging, Inc. manages. Their unique post production system generates incredibly rich, vibrant, magazine quality photos that are an important tool used to make sure that Park City Lodging, Inc.'s guests are matched with the right property.
“It’s important to show professional quality photos to our guests because it acts as another confirmation that we’re a professional company. We’re not offering rentals by owner and we’re not a start-up. We know what we’re doing,” says Sideris.
