Automate reservations and drive incremental revenue and engagement with the hotel Zobot

If you are a part of the hospitality industry, you know how important customer engagement is. Keeping hotel guests engaged and comfortable has always been an uphill task and this task would be nearly impossible without actually connecting with your guests to ascertain what they would like. The Zobot for the hotel industry completely redefines a hotel’s guest experience by keeping your guests engaged right from pre-booking to post-departure while also helping them solve their check-in/out issues. These Zobots can render hyper-personalized recommendations to your guests based on their behaviour and preferences and help them order food. Let's look into the features and functionalities of this Zobot in detail.

How does this Zobot work? 

  • When a visitor lands on the website and matches the trigger criteria, the bot will trigger a welcome message along with the main menu.
  • Once the bot receives a message from the website visitor, the message handler starts executing where visitors are reactively engaged. All questions from the visitor are handled in the Message Handler.  
  • The combination of messages received from the website visitor will be analysed and stored in the code in the context handler, and the bot will respond to the visitors based on the question they receive from the available answers. The Context handler is also where all the necessary connections are created and invoked. The following are the connections inside the Q&A bot:
