As a software company, digitalization is basically our bread and butter. Nevertheless, this year, there have been significantly more advancements in this regard than one could have foreseen. This year, the focus on optimizing workflows through Artificial Intelligence has been a significant undertaking for us. Numerous workshops were conducted in this area to refine the efficiency of our internal processes. The time we gained because of this was directed towards enhancing the customer experience. And this is crucial because hotelkit has gained 628 new customers in 2023, now totaling 3,100 customers across 80 countries. This year, 4,000,000 tasks were completed within hotelkit which goes to show that hotelkit has notably boosted your productivity this year!
The Hotel Tech Awards 2023 brought us more cause for joy! We were honored as the best international solution in the following categories: Best Staff Collaboration Tool, Best Employee Engagement Software, Best Hotel Maintenance Software, Best Hotel Operations Platform and Best Housekeeping Software. Equally delightful was winning the People’s Choice Award as well as the first position among the top ten workplaces in the hotel technology industry. Following last year’s move, 123 hotelkids, which is how we like to refer to our colleagues, have now fully settled into the new Headquarter at the Rauchmühle in Salzburg. Feel free to drop by for a coffee and join us for a game of table tennis!
