With more than 40 years of delivering self-service solutions, Olea Kiosks® understands the value of reducing friction in the guest experience. Urvenue's 10+ years of experience in the resorts and hospitality realm and its ability to leverage its technology to monetize non-room inventory and other guest touchpoints during the in-stay journey solves one of the greatest challenges for resort managers. Combining UrVenue's powerful booking platform with self-service kiosks puts guests in complete control.
"It's exciting to partner with another US-based company so focused on technology that puts the power in the hands of the user," said Frank Olea, CEO of the company that now spans four generations. "Self-service kiosks equipped with the same technology used across all customer touch points helps with workforce management and removes mundane tasks like order and payment entry to allow staff to focus on higher-value tasks that truly enhance the guest experience," added Olea.
"Partnering with a trusted kiosk brand such as Olea will help unlock the full potential of UrVenue to resorts and venues all over the world," said Deron Pearson, CEO of UrVenue. "Together we'll be able to service customers with what they want, when they want in a safe and easy way as well as provide resorts with important insights, data and guest management."
An Olea kiosk paired with UrVenue's booking solution puts hospitality patrons in the driver's seat with frictionless, on-property, cashier-less, self-service booking capabilities. Guests can now book and transact any inventory within UrVenue, including but not limited to, special event ticketing such as seasonal pop-up experiences, show tickets, restaurant reservations, pool-side cabanas, nightclub and day club admission, special promotion vouchers, sportsbook lounge seats and bundled on-property experiences to name a few. UrVenue's hospitality-built booking platform makes it is easy to transact any type of non-room inventory on property and with Olea's flexible, modular design, the physical unit can be branded and designed for custom transactions including physical outputs such as show tickets or customized promotional vouchers or wristbands.
The pandemic has created significant disruption for the hospitality industry. Self-service kiosks reduce human interaction at a time when guests of all ages are comfortable using kiosks. In addition, venues can eliminate wait times with reservations, long lines, and processing payments, while increasing ticket lift dramatically, at a time when every second and penny of revenue counts.
Circa Resort and Casino will be the first resort to use the Olea with UrVenue kiosk at the beginning of 2021.
