hotel ServicePro is an economical cloud-based hotel maintenance solution that preserves property asset value and improves guest service by automating the communication, scheduling, tracking and reporting of tasks surrounding best practices, guest requests, safety requirements, preventive maintenance and equipment management.
Edie Chandler Lowe, hotel SystemsPro senior vice president, said, “Red Lion is a perfect example of how forward-looking hotel companies are leveraging technology to operate with greater efficiency and lower costs.

We made custom enhancements so that the system reduces the time required to complete the tasks and facilitates the prompt delivery of a personalized guest experience.”
hotel ServicePro keeps properties current on maintenance and safety inspection schedules
Red Lion’s property engineers and managers use hotel ServicePro to stay current on maintenance programs, warranty timetables, safety inspections, and preventive maintenance schedules. The system also enables property staff to respond quickly to guest requests and track resolutions.
Rich Gleave, vice president, facilities, procurement, design and construction for Red Lion, said, “We selected hotel ServicePro for its broad functionality, excellent online video training and solid customer support. It is also priced perfectly for a company the size of Red Lion. All 27 of our corporate owned properties installed hotel ServicePro for both preventive maintenance tracking and guest service requests. We have efficiently processed thousands of work orders and guest requests in the past six months because our teams are using the system very effectively.”
According to Gleave, the system tracks property guest requests for amenities like towels, pillows, and rollaways centrally in the cloud, so designated staff instantly receive requests on their handheld device. “hotel ServicePro has an escalation process that tracks how quickly we respond to requests so a manager can take action to ensure high service standards,” Gleave said. If hotel staff see a problem as they walk the property they can snap a photo with their smartphone and upload it for immediate response. “We could never take this kind of fast action before. With all service and guest requests in the cloud, managers can track where requests originate so they can eliminate problems, or prepare for them before they happen. hotel ServicePro is an ideal tool for guest service, property inspections, and preventive maintenance.”
