Planet Tip has revolutionized the tipping process for housekeepers across the world by creating a "tip on the fly" mobile website that can be accessed by smart phones, tablets or lap tops. Many hotel guests are hesitant to leave cash in the room for housekeepers despite great service for fear that the tip would not get into the right hands. Planet Tip solves this issue by guaranteeing that the housekeeper who serviced the room is the same individual who gets the tip.

Better yet, the guest can rate the housekeepers’ service and leave a comment such as "great service" or “thanks for taking care of me". This is not only beneficial for the guest, but good for the housekeeper, as well as the hotel management. The guests gets to read a little about the housekeeper that serviced their room and leave them a thank you tip, while the housekeeper is more motivated to go the extra distance while servicing the room in anticipation of receiving the rating, comment and gratuity. The hotel manager can then review ratings of housekeepers, to reward high performers and re-train low performers.

Additionally, hotel managers like this new way of appreciating housekeepers due to the up-sale aspect for the establishment. When a guest tips a housekeeper though Planet Tip, an automatic "thank you" is sent back to the guest from the housekeeper with the ability to customize a message such as "mention my Planet Tip number and get 20% off your next stay" or "don't forget to take advantage of our stay two days get the third day free program this summer". This allows a hotel to generate repeat business in a more personal way.

About Planet Tip: It's an online tip jar where people can receive or send a gratuity electronically. In addition, people can rate the service and leave a comment. It is a place where people go to thank, appreciate and reward good service.
