What is a hotel card?
If you have ever used the hotel’s services, you must have known the magnetic card. For us, this card is only used to open the door and the electrical system in the room. However, for hotel managers, it plays a huge role.
Magnetic cards make hotel management easier
Magnetic cards use the principle of operation of the magnetic field to be able to open the door. When you reach the front of the room, you just need to put the card in the correct position and the door will be recognized and opened, no need for any other action. This also ensures more safety because it is difficult for thieves to break this type of door to get inside the room.
The hotel management by magnetic card mainly starts from opening or closing the door of the guest. Each time we use the magnetic lock to close or open the door, the system will link with a server to record the exact time of operation, in which room, what customer’s name… So the manager can know more clearly information about the use of services by customers.
Why do you need to manage hotels with magnetic cards?
Previously, when there was no magnetic card, the situation of employees cheating very often happened because the management could not get information from customers. For example, guests check out before the contract date, which services to use, only the staff knows, the manager can only understand through the reception’s notes.
In addition, many employees work irresponsibly, so they do not clean the room early for customers, until the time of check-in, they still have to wait for the room to be cleaned. If there is a magnetic card, the manager will know when the previous customer is checking out, ask the staff to clean the room and bring the new customer up on time.
The fact that employees arbitrarily raise room rates for customers is also thoroughly managed because all transactions have been recorded through the software. Customers should also request an invoice for each transaction to ensure their benefits.
Besides, if there is no magnetic card, the manager will “receive” a bunch of different mechanical keys. Finding the keys for guests will become more difficult, and at the same time very easy to confuse causing many inconveniences.
