FAQs about the Digital Guest Directory

You can highlight your DGD very easily:

We will provide you with digital files that can be integrated into the booking confirmation or your website. That way, you can inform your guests about everything they need to know before they even arrive.

At arrival, your guests will receive a flyer that offers information about your Digital Guest Directory. You’ll get these flyers from us, too.

During their stay, your guests will find room stands in their rooms and public areas, which come with additional information about the Digital Guest Directory.

The Wi-Fi Landing Page and the Hotel Newspaper can also redirect your guests to the Digital Guest Directory.

As you can see: There are many options for your guests to actively use the Digital Guest Directory.

You don’t, but you can. Our Digital Guest Directory is based on the BYOD (bring your own device) principle. That way, your guests access and use it via their own devices. After all, that’s the most hygienic and convenient solution for your guests. You can reach them no matter where and don’t have to invest in hardware and maintenance.

We can also provide you with hardware if you wish to make your Digital Guest Directory accessible in public areas: Our offer includes touchscreen kiosks and tablets with fitting stands. They can be set up near reception and work as a digital concierge, answering your guests’ questions in a fun-to-use way around the clock.

Further information can be found here.

The menu of the Digital Guest Directory is available in German, English, Italian, Dutch and French. In addition, we can translate your contents into any language.

Yes, you can! You can contact your guests via the integrated chat feature and answer their questions and requests at any time.

We’ll take care of the initial setup of your Digital Guest Directory. Afterwards, you can manage your contents online. You will have access to our content management system and the associated online editor. This can be used to update your contents in real time, with just a few clicks.

Our customer service is what defines us. You will always have the right contact person to support you – from purchase to setup to finalisation and the time afterwards. Once your Digital Guest Directory is ready to use, your contact person from our customer service will get in touch with you and support you with tips and tricks at any time. This service comes without any additional costs!

Isolated solutions are too common in the hotel industry. That is why we want to make sure that our products complement each other while being managed via a single platform. That way, contents can be displayed in the Digital Guest Directory, the Hotel Newspaper or the Info Channel. QR codes in the Hotel Newspaper or the Info Channel redirect your guests to your Digital Guest Directory. The Wi-Fi Landing Page is another perfect complement to the DGD: Once your guests log in to the Wi-Fi network, a landing page will come up and redirect them to your Digital Guest Directory.
