Increasing your Revenue with Email Marketing

Does email marketing still make sense?

With the advent of social media we often talk about email dying a slow death. But this is just media propaganda. Email is only becoming stronger, robust and omnipresent. In today’s scenario marketing initiatives on social media could end up being very expensive and the results are often not guaranteed and at times marketers miss the target audience by a huge margin. Though social media marketing is a subset of a potent digital marketing strategy it is important to understand that these platforms have their own limitations.

More filters in Geedesk [New Feature]

We understand that filters could be very useful in generating and sorting the reports and data to help you focus on the desired piece of information. To make the reports more useful to you we have added new filters in explore tickets and custom reports.

In explore tickets you can now filter down the results in terms of categories (or departments). This comes in handy for multi-department managers and general managers to see the ticket volume on different days and different time frames.

Filters in custom reports

Since the day it was launched custom reports have always been an integral part of our customers’ operations. Most of our customers generate the reports with the custom reports feature before their morning status call and that becomes the reference point for the meeting. To make things more useful for our customers we have now added “room based filter” and “categories (department) based filter” in custom reports.

Property dashboard is helpful in monitoring the performance of all your properties from the single dashboard in realtime. We understand that at times logging into property dashboard might be time consuming for you as a user. To address this we have now launched single sign on (sso) with Geedesk. Now any account that has an active property dashboard account can easily view their property dashboard from the settings on the top right hand side. This negates the need to login into property dashboard everytime.

Empowering your employees with mobile devices [Updated]

happy hotel employees

In my Geedesk sales meetings with hoteliers I have come across one common objection and that is “We do not allow our employees to use smartphone during work hours”. Though this might sound like an amazing strategy, but in my opinion this is a counter productive policy.
