Not only can hotel staff save time, but Whistle will engage with guests in personalized ways to enhance the guest experience.
Whistle CEO and Co-Founder Christopher Hovanessian says, “During the pandemic, Whistle has helped thousands of hoteliers keep their doors open through our software. Our core offerings, including messaging, have always been contactless in nature, but now more than ever is crucial for hotels as the industry looks to limit high-contact interactions.”
