Cloudbeds Flexkeeping Integration

How to Integrate Flexkeeping & Cloudbeds

Cloudbeds integration with Flexkeeping

WHAT IS FLEXKEEPING?

Far more than a Housekeeping and Maintenance app, Flexkeeping manages Hotel Operations and enables staff and departments to connect, communicate, and coordinate on another level. Properties can expedite and automate their workflows thanks to informed staff, meaningful analytics, and preventative measures, all of which results in increased guest satisfaction.

BENEFITS

Cloudbeds and Flexkeeping integration save costs
SAVE COSTS

Lower costs for payroll, linen management, maintenance materials, and general maintenance as well as less minibar lost posting.

CB integration Optimise
OPTIMIZE WORK PROCESSES

With all relevant work information in the palm of their hands, Housekeeping Supervisors know which room to check next, Maintenance knows what to fix and the tools required, and Reception doesn’t need to check with others if a room is ready for the next guest.

INCREASE QUALITY OF SERVICES & GUEST SATISFACTION

The time staff save allows them to do their tasks better, quality inspections ensure mistakes are corrected in time, preventative planning prevents mistakes in the future, and analytics & data make it possible to make informed decisions and improve future operations.

CB staff satisfaction
HIGHER STAFF SATISFACTION & LOWER STAFF TURNOVER

When staff are more connected, everyone clearly knows their tasks and the property’s status. With improved team communication, news, shared feedback, and constant support staff will feel like part of a winning team.
