TraknProtect has launched a new tech solution designed to help hotels enhance housekeeping operations while providing guests with security and peace of mind during post-COVID travel.
Called TraknKleen, it receives data from multiple sources, such as housekeeping carts, ID cards, cleaning supplies, and other assets, to automatically track the date, time, and duration of the cleaning process for guestrooms and public areas in a hotel.
The tool also uses multiple data points to help hotels assess and confirm compliance with established cleaning protocols, while also inspiring a higher level of trust for guests and hotel staff. The tool creates an audit trail for housekeeping activities, and tracks the use of designated cleaning assets, such as electrostatic sprayers in all guest areas. To ensure data security, all personally identifiable information is stored anonymously for housekeeping activities that are aggregated and reported, allowing staff to use the solution confidently without being individually monitored. Collected data is analysed over intermittent periods, for example every 3-4 hours, and arranged in a manner such that no real-time tracking taking place.
“Our hotel partners are working as hard as possible to promote safe travel in the Post-COVID era, and we want to empower them by providing a solution that helps them reassure their guests that they are protecting the guests’ health and wellness,” said Parminder Batra, founder & CEO of TraknProtect. “We know how important safety is at each hotel and so we have designed specific products and tools that will help hotels win back guest confidence and provide a safe working environment to employees as we all rebound post-COVID.”
